Nissan leads EV demand

May saw an 18.7% increase in the number of new electric vehicle registrations, according to figures from the SMMT.

With demand seemingly on the increase, the HPI has identified five of the best electric vehicles to buy under £10,000.

It named the Nissan Leaf as the top choice, followed by the Nissan Zoe, with the Citroen C Zero, Mitsubishi I-MIEV and Peugeot ION also on the list.

Chris Plumb, motoring expert at HPI said, ‘Drivers are becoming increasingly comfortable with electric vehicles as the technology improves. Second hand models are becoming more affordable and can offer cost effective motoring. Our picks provide value for money and are likely to hold their value in the years to come.’
