Electric and hybrid car group tests
The DrivingElectric group-test hub brings together our in-depth road-test comparisons of the latest electric and hybrid models on the market
You can spend all day reading brochures and comparing specifications and price lists, but when it comes to deciding whether a car is really worth your money, there's no substitute for getting behind the wheel and taking it out in the real world. That's where our group tests come in: we do the hard work for you, racking up thousands of miles every year behind the wheel of the latest hybrid and electric cars to find out what they're really like.
Does their range or fuel economy match the manufacturer's claimed figures? How comfortable are they on a long motorway journey? Will the boot cope with a large buggy or a stack of suitcases? And how easy is the infotainment system to figure out? We answer all these common queries and more in the course of our rigorous, fair and unbiased evaluations.
We love cars and driving – but we don't just focus on how they handle or how quick they can go around a test track. We look at every aspect of everyday ownership, from company-car tax to charging speeds, practicality to optional extras and residual values to safety and reliability records.
