22 Jul Best Electric Cars to Buy In 2022
Pressure is mounting on UK motorists to abandon their gasoline and diesel automobiles in favor of all-electric vehicles. In the UK, the number of electric car sales remains low when compared to fossil-fueled alternatives, although this is changing. The increased availability of quick and speedy chargers in homes, businesses, and public locations make the transition to a BEV easier than ever.
But the fact is that these electric vehicles are in demand and they will likely continue to become more prominent over the long term.
The Hyundai Ioniq 5 was named Car of the Year for 2021, while the Fiat 500 was named best city car. When compared to gasoline counterparts, electric automobiles can save up to 60% on operating costs. Electric vehicles are free from the congestion charge zone in London as well as paying road tax.
The Ioniq 5 is intended to compete with vehicles such as the Audi Q4 e-Tron and the Tesla Model Y. There are two battery choices with three power outputs ranging from 58kWh to 214bhp. The top-spec model has the same 73kWh battery but adds a second front-mounted engine for a total of 301bhp and 605Nm of torque.
The Enya is a typical Skoda all-electric family vehicle. The vehicle is well-equipped, comfy, and easy to drive. Top-of-the-line versions can go over 300 kilometers on a single charge. An entry-level model begins at slightly around £35,000.
The Fiat 500 EV is the company’s response to Nissan’s Leaf. There are two battery options: 42kWh Long Range and 24kWh City Range. Both have a 115-mile range on a single charge, but the larger battery has a more realistic 199-mile range before needing to be recharged.
Ford’s first all-electric SUV is the Mustang Mach-E. The ‘Standard Range’ model with rear- or four-wheel drive starts at £41,000 and goes up from there. The quickest model accelerates from 0 to 62 mph in 5.1 seconds and has a range of 273 miles on a single charge.
The 2017 Porsche Taycan is an incredible vehicle to drive. This Porsche sports saloon stays faithful to its maker’s pedigree and leaves no mistake that it is a ‘genuine’ Porsche sports car. The Taycan exemplifies Porsche’s vision for the future as it transitions from fossil fuels to electric power.
The Audi e-Tron GT boasts 523bhp, can accelerate from 0 to 62mph in 4.1 seconds and has a range of 298 miles. The in-car technology is cutting-edge, with 18-way electrically adjustable seats and a head-up display. Charging is also an advantage of 800V charging stations.
The ideal charging strategy for an EV is to charge it at home overnight when power rates are cheaper. If you drive fewer than 200 miles each week, you may be able to manage without a home or work charger. Don’t be frightened off by expensive electric car pricing; it’s the running expenses that matter. Charging an electric vehicle is far less expensive than filling a gasoline or diesel vehicle. Electric vehicles are often heavier than gasoline and diesel counterparts, making them seem less agile on twisting roads.
