Smart EQ ForFour review

Despite mediocre battery range, modest carrying capacity and a firm ride, the Smart EQ ForFour is a likeable electric city-car package

Kia Niro PHEV review

It's not the most inspiring to drive, but the excellent economy and a long electric range make the Kia Niro PHEV worth a look

Smart EQ ForTwo Coupe review

The Smart EQ ForTwo is a fantastic city runabout, but it’s hampered by its two-seat body, limited practicality and relatively short electric range

MINI Countryman Cooper S E All4 review

The Countryman plug-in is not only cheap to run (particularly for business drivers). It’s desirable and good to drive, too

Lexus CT 200h review

The Lexus CT 200h just about manages to remain relevant in an increasingly crowded market, but newer rivals are more efficient

Smart EQ ForTwo Cabrio review

The Smart EQ ForTwo Cabriolet is the only convertible electric car on sale, but the Coupe version’s compromises apply here, too

Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV Commercial van review

The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV Commercial is a unique vehicle, but doesn’t get the same tax benefits as the passenger model

Hyundai Ioniq Plug-In review

The Hyundai Ioniq Plug-In isn’t quite as economical as its Toyota Prius rival, but it's cheaper and a less common sight on the road

Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid review

The Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid is a seriously strong rival to the Toyota Prius; it’s great value, easy to live with and cheap to run

Honda NSX review

BMW 530e iPerformance review

The best thing about the BMW 5 Series plug-in hybrid is that it feels like every other 5 Series – refined, classy and spectacularly good to drive

Kia Niro review

The Kia Niro is an SUV-style self-charging hybrid that’s more practical than a Toyota Prius, if less efficient

New BMW 7 Series hybrid review: 745Le xDrive pre-production drive

We get behind the wheel of the new plug-in hybrid 7 Series luxury saloon from BMW

Tesla Model X review

The Tesla Model X is a vast SUV with a variety of interior seating layouts, astonishing performance, useful real-world range and a modern character

Tesla Model S review

The Tesla Model S was one of the first to make electric cars desirable, but its qualities come at a substantial price

Jaguar I-Pace review

The Jaguar I-Pace is a revolution – the first electric executive car to match long range to big desirability and driver reward. It sets a high benchmark

Hyundai Kona Electric review

The Kona Electric boasts fashionable looks, affordable pricing and – crucially – a range that meets or beats that offered by many rivals

Living with it: Hyundai Kona Electric 64kWh Premium SE

Choosing a Hyundai Kona Electric is certainly no chore. Here we introduce our new long term car, which we'll be living with for the next six months.

Kia e-Niro review

The Kia e-Niro is our favourite electric family car. It’s a great compact SUV with a 282-mile official electric range and an affordable price

Infiniti Q70 Hybrid review

The Q70 Hybrid is fast and comfortable but flawed in other key areas
