Best Electric Cars to Buy in 2023

If you’re thinking of investing in an electric car this year, these are the top ten models that should be on your list.

The experts at Auto Express have revealed the best electric vehicles on the market in the UK right now – and purchasing one of these EVs could help to slash your daily running costs.

Although generally more expensive to buy than petrol or diesel-powered motors, all-electric cars should prove to be cheaper to run and – you’ll know you’ll be doing your bit for the planet as there are no polluting emissions to worry about.

Electric vehicle technology is evolving quickly, with a wider range of cars and advancements in battery efficiency and public charging availability.

There is, however, still a lot of work to do to ensure EV drivers can readily access charging points, and to bring the purchase price down – issues which appear to be hampering an increase in sales.

If you’re in the market for an electric car, read on to discover the best EVs in the UK today:

Topping the charts is the Nissan Ariya, an all-electric family SUV. It’s comfortable, and fun to drive and you’ll be surprised at the leap forward it has made for Nissan – offering quality and technology in a family-friendly vehicle. It’s pretty quick too with the top-spec model reaching 0-62mph in 5.7 seconds.

In second place is the MG  4 – a very welcome addition to the electric car market – offering EVs at a more reasonable price than some manufacturers with prices from £26,995, and a range of 281 miles on a single charge.

Completing the top three is the Renault Megane, a family hatchback and all-electric crossover. All models have a 60kWh battery and a 280-mile range.

Plus, there are other benefits to pure-electric motoring besides the environmental ones – you’ll be exempt from London’s congestion charge and from paying road tax
