Electric SUVs

With SUVs being the go-to favourite in the family car game, it's somewhat of a genius move for more and more manufacturers choosing to offer a fully-electric SUV in their range.

With the electric car continuing to grow in popularity, the SUV bodystyle is the best bet of getting the non-believers behind the wheel of an electric car, for sure.

And with the impressive selection now available, below we have listed the best most affordable electric SUVs from the likes of Ford, Peugeot, Vauxhall, Hyundai, and Kia.

Ford Mustang Mach-E

Ford Mustang Mach-E

Talking of genius moves, when Ford said they were going to make a fully-electric Mustang, it did provoke a lot of eye-brow raising.

Okay, so the Ford Mustang Mach-E is an extension of the Mustang brand, and it's a rather clever one at that. Introducing electrification whilst still selling the iconic Mustang GT V8 alongside the electric version is a fine move, especially when it's not just practicality that's on offer.

With a choice of rear-wheel or all-wheel drive, the Mach-E is no slouch, with performance ranging between 3.7 and 7.0 seconds to go from 0 to 62mph. With a range of up to 379 miles, the Mach-E is properly usable too. As for charging, you will only need 10 minutes to gain 73 miles when using a 150kW DC charger, with up to 80 percent achievable in just 90 minutes.

With a 402-litre boot, space for five and funky looks, the Mustang Mach-E is a properly cool fully-electric family SUV, with all the performance, practicality, and wow factor you could want.

Peugeot e-2008

Peugeot e-2008

Peugeot have really adopted Parisian flair in their latest selection of SUVs, with each one offering exceptionally smart and sleek looks. And, with the most compact in the range – the 2008 – available in a fully-electric SUV, it's a perfect combination.

Although it's a compact offering, the e-2008 still has a delightfully useful 405-litre boot. The interior of the Pug is also ultrasophisticated and gives the impression you're in something much more premium. The Peugeot i-Cockpit and angular design of the interior help to ensure this, meaning it's a great place to spend time for both driver and passengers.

As for performance, with 0 to 62mph taking around 9.0 seconds, it's not the fastest thing in the world, but it's not slow either. With a 192-mile range, it could benefit from a little more, but on the whole, it's a great little package. A 100kW charger can charge your e-2008 to 80 percent in around 20 minutes, with a standard 50kW public charger increasing charge from 20 to 80 percent in just 40 minutes.

Vauxhall Mokka-e

Vauxhall Mokka-e

Vauxhall have really upped their game in style recently, and the Mokka has benefited a lot from this new design language. The old Mokka wasn't exactly known for its striking looks, but this new one looks to change that.

Sleek and interesting exterior vibes are joined by a revamped interior that is sure to impress, as it's much more cutting-edge than ever before with sharp digital screens and a much more impressive feel all-round.

Performance is competitive and is similar to the Peugeot mentioned previously, with 0 to 62mph happening in 8.7 seconds, with a range of up to 209 miles. A 50Kw charger will have your Mokka-e charged from zero to 80 percent in around 50 minutes.

Hyundai Kona Electric

Hyundai Kona Electric

Hyundai is another brand to have gave their design language a overhaul in recent times, and the Kona is another model that looks properly cutting-edge and interesting.

The sleek headlights and funky angles give this electric Kona real kerb appeal. Up to 300 miles is available off a full charge, which will take around 47 minutes when using a public charging station.

The Kona Electric is more than nippy too, with 0 to 62mph taking just 7.9 seconds. A 332-litre boot is not the biggest, but it's usable and most will find it plenty big enough to dump a weekly shop in. Fold the rear seats, and you'll get 1,114 litres – meaning plenty of space for boxes from IKEA runs and the like.

Kia e-Niro

Kia Niro-e

Another quirky and compact all-electric SUV, this time in the form of the Kia e-Niro.

Its styling is interesting, although at first glance it may not be as striking as others in this list, but it still has the certain cutting-edge electric whiff about it, with blue detailing helping where necessary.

A 282-mile range is good news too, along with a not too shabby 7.5 second 0 to 62mph time, which means it won't feel slow in modern traffic. Charging takes around 40 minutes with a 100 kW rapid public charger, or overnight with a regular wallbox charger – like most EVs.

With a 451-litre boot, the e-Niro is hugely practical and beats a few SUVs which are much bigger in proportion.
