If you’re looking for familiarity, then you can’t go wrong with the electric version of the Volkswagen Golf. There is a new model coming out this year so anything we mention now could change soon. Nonetheless, it will still look and drive like a Golf, just without the CO2. What more could you possibly want?
The only drawback is the price, it’s considerably more expensive than the Zoe and the Leaf, but it is a Golf. And you can’t really argue with that.
Alternatively, you could opt for the electric version of the UP. Still the same model, just electric. It’s cheaper than the Golf and comes with a huge amount of standard equipment including parking sensors, sat-nav, automatic emergency braking, climate control, heated seats and cruise control.
It does have a limited range though. At only 93 miles and a top speed of 81mph, it’s strictly for city driving.
