Best electric cars 2024

Here are the top 10 used EVs to consider buying this year

Best EVs you can buy online:

Electric cars have gone mainstream in the past couple of years, with 14% of new vehicles bought by Brits being fully electric.

That beats every other type of vehicle bar petrol-only, which holds the largest position in the market. 

The support for electric vehicle charging stations is also growing rapidly, making Britain more suitable for the massive influx of new electric vehicles (EVs). 

Here are the top 10 electric cars to buy in 2024.

Renault Zoe

We’ll kick off with the Renault Zoe, which is great for two reasons: it’s affordable and offers a solid 200-mile range. 

Even when you do run out of juice, the Renault Zoe can be charged back up to 80% in less than an hour using its built-in rapid charging capabilities.  

When it comes to driving, the Zoe produces a respectable 135hp, which drives the front wheels and means it’s very nippy around town, but it also handles longer journeys with ease. 

Peugeot e-208

The standard Peugeot 208 is a great car, and it now produces a fully electric version that competes with the Honda E, Mini Electric, and Vauxhall Corsa-e

The Peugeot e-208 is powered by an electric motor that’s mated to a 50kWh battery, which promises more than 200 miles of range on a single charge and great on-road performance. 

Inside, the e-208 is as practical as its petrol/diesel-powered alternatives, offering up to 311 litres of bootspace.

It also comes with some very impressive interior technologies, such as Bluetooth and smartphone connectivity (including Apple CarPlay and Android Auto) as well as a large 7-inch or 10-inch touchscreen, depending on the spec.

Ford Mustang Mach-E

The only mildly controversial thing about the Ford Mustang Mach-E is its name, which angered purists because it ‘isn’t a proper Mustang’. 

The Mustang Mach-E is much different to its V8 relative because it’s powered by electricity and in its most basic form, it’s powered by a single rear-mounted electric motor that produces 294hp.  

Go for the range-topping Mach-E GT and you will find a dual-motor set-up that puts out 485hp, launching it from 0-62mph in 3.7 seconds. 

Regardless of the model variant you choose, you’ll be getting a solid range reading. Cheaper models will do more than 200 miles, while Mach-E GT variants will return up to 310 miles on a single charge. Plus, a used Ford will save you even more money.

Jaguar I-Pace

If luxury is what you’re after, then the Jaguar I-Pace might be the car for you. It produces 400hp and should offer just shy of 300 miles on a single charge, thanks to its 90kWh battery. 

Despite weighing 2.2 tonnes, the Jaguar I-Pace is quick, offering a blistering 0-62mph time of 4.8 seconds, which rivals the times of most modern sports cars

What we love even more than its great electric range and power is its interior, which deserves a mention.

From its excellent plush leather seats to its great infotainment system, the I-Pace can do it all, and it makes you feel like you’re sitting in a car worth double the price. And what’s more beautiful is that it’s totally silent. 

Tesla Model S

Taking on the likes of the Porsche Taycan and Audi e-tron GT, the Tesla Model S sits at the top of the electric car tree in terms of speed, performance, and all-electric range. 

While it may come with a higher price than a lot of the other electric cars on this list, the Tesla Model S is worth it because of its premium interior and in-built technology. 

Power comes from a 671hp dual motor set-up in its standard form, but opt for the range-topping Model S Plaid and you will benefit from more than 1,000hp and a 0-60mph time of 1.99 seconds. 

To top it all off, the Model S – in any guise – boasts an amazing range, sitting between 350-405 miles. 

Nissan Leaf

The Nissan Leaf is an EV that often goes under the radar because it looks like an ordinary car, but it actually offers so much more. 

The used Nissan Leaf was first launched in 2010 and there are now five different trim levels on offer, ranging from the entry-level Acenta all the way up to the e+Tekna. 

Alongside these trims come two different battery options – 40kWh and 62kWh. The lesser offers a range of 168 miles, whereas the larger battery claims 239 miles on a single charge.

Even if you opted for the smaller battery, you’re still getting a better range than in many other electric hatchbacks

Fiat 500e

Unless you’ve been living under a rock since 1957, you’ll know what the Fiat 500 is. It’s no surprise that it now comes in an all-electric form because Fiat – like other companies – noticed a gap in the city car market

The 500e is an electric city car that has great range, great looks, familiarity, and great technology.  

In its most basic form, it comes with a 42kWh battery that gives you a claimed range of 199 miles, and with one pedal driving, you don’t need to think nearly as much about the driving itself. 

Aside from its solid battery set-up, the 500e has a splendid interior complete with a 10.25-inch infotainment touchscreen (if you opt for the more expensive Icon trim) and plenty of legroom and space for rear-seat passengers.  

Volkswagen ID.3

With a 200-330-mile range, all the bells and whistles, and the build quality of all used Volkswagen models, what’s not to love about the Volkswagen ID.3? 

Entry-level I.D3s come with a 45kWh battery pack that offers 200 miles, whereas the range-topping Pro S has a 77kWh battery and a great range of 330 miles – not bad for something the same size as a Golf

While the ID.3 isn’t inherently a performance-orientated car, it still packs a decent punch, producing up to 200hp in its sportiest form, with a 0-62mph time of 7.9 seconds. 

Inside, it’s a very futuristic place to be – VW has ensured it’s not overcomplicated, but it’s very functional and attractive.  

Skoda Enyaq iV

If you’re looking for a comfortable all-electric family SUV that offers great bang for your buck, strong reliability and build quality, and that has a good range, the Enyaq iV may just be for you. 

For Skoda’s first fully electric car, we think the Enyaq iV is fantastic. It embodies everything the brand stands for, especially when it comes to value – because you get a lot of car for the money. 

The Enyaq iV is available with two different battery options: a smaller 58kWh found in the iV 60; and a larger 77kWh battery in the iV 80. The former claims to return up to 252 miles, while the larger iV 80’s battery claims to do 329 miles on a single charge. 

There’s also plenty of boot space and lots of room for all the family in the rear row of seats. It really is an excellent choice for an all-electric family car. 

Tesla Model 3

One electric car that’s deserving of all the adoration it receives is the Tesla Model 3. This electric hatchback has taken the world by storm, and has become one of the most popular models of car in the world. 

You get three different options when it comes to power and range.

The entry-level Model 3 has a rear-wheel drive set-up with a 305-mile range. Following closely behind that is the Model 3 Long Range, which costs a little more but will give you the most range at 374 miles on a single charge.  

Sitting at the top is the Model 3 Performance, which is for the thrill-seekers among us. This produces more than 500hp and has 340 miles of available range.   

Tesla’s Model 3 really is one of the best in its class, and is certainly an electric car that everyone should consider.
