What Car? EV Awards 2021: the best electric cars you can buy

What Car? Logo By What Car? team of What Car? | Slide 2 of 23: List price £28,495 (before £2500 gov’t grant) Target Price £28,495 Target PCP £336 0-62mph 9.0sec Top speed 93mph Minimum charging time (10-80%) 27min This popular little car has been completely reinvented with electric power and fresh design, and it sets the bar for affordable electric motoring. Even its range is good. The 42kWh battery of our recommended version can officially take you an impressive 199 miles between charges – far enough for the 500 to compete with more expensive, bigger alternatives such as the Peugeot e-208 and Renault Zoe. Its broad spread of attributes also includes a comfortable driving position, a smart interior and decent levels of equipment. You really only need to add a few options (we’d recommend Comfort seats and heated side mirrors), to make the 500 a plush little car that you’ll be more than happy to jump into even with a long journey ahead.  Official range: 198 miles  Our test range: 140 miles (29.2% less)
