- Nissan Leaf
This is the original and still the most popular – with sales far surpassing all other EV’s. The Leaf is now in its second generation and is a much better all-rounder than the original model. It’s faster, better to drive, bigger inside and capable of much longer distances between charges.
- Tesla Model 3
The most famous of EV’s! A very well-engineered car; the dual-motor performance is fast, with adept handling. A range of 300 miles while still looking stunning!
- Renault Zoe
One of the most attractively priced EV’s, this compact car with its bold design has been upgraded from its predessor to include a better battery and interior.
- Audi eTron
The eTron doesn’t look like an electric car but a beautiful, silent, lightweight family car with a high spec finished interior that you would expect from Audi. A well built and developed car, easy to drive and manage.
- The Hyundai Kona Electric
One of the best electric cars on the market, with a good fast charger, an impressive driving range up to 449km. It is the first electric compact SUV in Europe.
Range: 482 km
- Jaguar iPace
Jaguar say it is a true driver’s car. Top Gear gave it 8/10. An all-electric SUV that rivals the Tesla. Looks gorgeous with 20 inch wheels, plenty of acceleration, interior space and a big boot.
- The Hyundai ICONIQ Electric
One of the nicest looking electric cars on the market, competing with the popular Nissan Leaf.
- Kia eNiro
Like other models, the Kia eNiro comes with two battery options which can be handy for those not going long distances.
Range: 289 km
- Kia Soul EV
Although it went on sale in 2019, this car is still a popular model with Irish buyers, and this time the new version is high spec, high tech and also not badly priced.
