What are the best electric SUVs on the market?

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

This article explores an impressive selection of new and used electric SUVs available, including some of the most affordable options that offer plenty of benefits to drivers.


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 eyebrow raising.

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 372 miles, the Mach-E is properly usable too. As for charging, you'll only need 10 minutes to gain 73 miles when using a 150kW DC charger, with up to 80 percent achievable in just 33 minutes.

When it comes to storage, you’ll be served with a spacious interior, with enough space to pack for a large family. Besides the 402-litre boot, which is impressive in itself, the Mach-E has a 100-litre of drainable storage space under the bonnet.

The onboard technology was purposely designed to combine the excellent performance with advanced features that creates a relaxing driving experience and safer journeys. The large and sleek 15.5-inch infotainment system is located in the centre console of the vehicle and has Ford’s latest generation of the SYNC system.

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 as a fully-electric SUV, it offers a great combination of style and substance.

Although it's a compact offering, the e-2008 still has a delightfully useful 434-litre boot. The interior is also ultrasophisticated and gives the impression you're in something much more premium.

The Peugeot i-Cockpit sports a large, sleek infotainment system that comes with i-Connect preinstalled. This onboard technology provides easier navigation experience to the driver and excellent entertainment for the passengers.

As for performance, with 0 to 62mph taking around 9.1 seconds, it's not the fastest thing in the world, but it's not slow either. The newest version of the e-2008 has been improved, delivering a 250-mile range, which is a great little package. A rapid 100kW charger can charge your e-2008 to 80 percent in around 30 minutes, whilst a standard 7.4W charger takes 7 hours and 40 minutes.

Vauxhall Mokka Electric

Vauxhall Mokka Electric 

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

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 on a single charge. The instant torque delivered from the electric engine provides prompt power at the touch of the accelerator.

If you’re in for a zero emission experience, the compact SUV has a powerful electric motor that delivers 134bhp. A 50Kw charger will have your Mokka Electric charged from zero to 80 percent in around 50 minutes.

Hyundai Kona Electric

Hyundai KONA Electric 

Hyundai is another brand to have given their design language an overhaul in recent times, and the KONA Electric is another model that looks properly cutting-edge and interesting.

The sleek headlights and funky angles give this electric KONA a futuristic appeal. Up to 319 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 7.8 seconds. A 466-litre boot is not the biggest, but it's usable and most will find it big enough to dump a weekly shop in. Fold the rear seats, and you'll get 1,300 litres – meaning plenty of space for boxes from IKEA runs and the like. If more storage space is needed, the Kona, has a special frunk (front trunk) that holds up to 47 litres worth of items.

Kia Niro EV

Kia Niro EV 

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

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 285-mile range is good news too, along with a not too shabby 7.8 second 0 to 62mph time, which means it won't feel slow in modern traffic. Charging from 10 to 80 percent takes around 43 minutes with a DC rapid charger, or overnight with a regular wallbox charger – like most EVs.

With a 475-litre boot that can be extended to 1,445 litres, the Niro EV is hugely practical and beats a few SUVs which are much bigger in proportion.
