Buy an EV

Happy New Year to you all! 2020 definitely went two ways for everyone. Either you went all out and splashed the cash on countless online orders, or you saved for rainy days should the unexpected happen. Although we hope 2020 will be a thing of the past and we are through most of the worst of it, we are taking a look back at some of the most affordable EVs of 2020 that actually brought people joy.

Are you looking to upgrade your family car or even treat yourself to a new car just because, well you can? You’ve come to the right place! If you’re looking to buy an electric car in 2021 then use our handy 2020 guide to find the best EV for you. 


The era of electric vehicles didn’t really evolve too much until Tesla manufactured the Roadster. Since then, the EV enthusiasts at Tesla have continuously rolled out new and exciting models. The Tesla Model 3 is a perfect example of a car in high demand. 

Since the release of the Tesla Model 3 in 2019, this particular EV has become known as the Tesla that is affordable but has certainly not held back on quality and luxury.

The main highlights of the Tesla Model 3 (standard) is the 220 miles of range, lightning-quick acceleration and comfort. With a capability of reaching 0 – 60mph in 5.3 seconds, it’s sure to impress any driver. This will only improve with the model, so be sure to compare the Long Range and the Performance model too!

You’ll be amazed at the amount of technology that has been packed in. If you loved the exterior, the interior will be even better. Despite the clean, and minimalistic interior layout, there are tons of gadgets and must-haves within this car. Any EV driver will be guaranteed to enjoy a comfy and luxurious travel experience in a Tesla Model 3.

How much will it cost me?

To buy a standard Tesla Model 3, you’ll be looking at around £42,000. This may seem like a large setback if it’s purchased from new, however for the amount you get, it’s well worth the money in our opinion. When you choose to buy a secondhand EV you could be getting an even better bargain. Currently, we are yet to get our hands on a Tesla Model 3 for sale from our sister company, EVision Electric Vehicle Hire, but fingers crossed we will in the near future.

Once you drive a Tesla, it’ll be hard for you to drive anything else without comparing it, you’ll be as hooked as we are!


The Jaguar I-Pace, an undoubtedly popular car in the EV world. In late 2018, the all-electric I-Pace emerged on the EV market, which was the first pure-electric vehicle for the British car manufacturer. 

It comes as standard with a 90 kWh battery and is capable of reaching 0 – 60MPH in 4.5 seconds, which is pretty nippy!

The all wheel drive has perfectly combined a sporty and sleek exterior with a practical and comfortable interior. We can see why the Jaguar I-Pace won the World Car of the Year award in 2019. The Jaguar I-Pace is perfect for short trips into town, plus the longer road trips with the family. If you’re wanting to upgrade your family car, then we couldn’t think of a better car. Designed with ample amounts of storage, you’ll find a space for everything.

The price tag for a brand new Jaguar I-Pace starts from around £69,000, but as we mentioned previously we have our connections and can easily source fantastic deals on second hand EVs. 


Where’s some of the smaller, affordable EVS we hear you ask? The BMW i3 is definitely the perfect example of one. The iconic shape of the exterior, the unique design of the rear doors, and the futuristic interior will make you think the car will set you back a lot more than it does.

Do you ever worry about how long it takes to charge a vehicle? We would love to mention that on average it takes less than 6 hours to fully charge the BMW i3. When you think about it, most people charge their EV overnight or during work, and both of these things often take more than 6 hours to do anyway.

Convenience is something that comes to mind when you choose the BMW i3. Everything you could possibly need when driving can be easily located whether it be through the simple infotainment system or climate controls. Have everything you need at a touch of a button!

If you’re looking to buy a BMW i3, we have plenty of second hand EVs in immaculate condition that are ready for a new owner. View our full stock list here.


The Renault ZOE is so close to a conventional car, that you’ll almost forget it’s electric. If you want to experience the power of electric, but want to stick to what you already know, the Renault ZOE would be perfect for you.

With cutting edge technology including and a pleasantly surprising range, the Renault ZOE is very popular with our customers.

This particular EV has been named Affordable Electric Car of the Year 2020 by Auto Express. Along with an affordable price tag, Renault drivers will benefit from a comfortable, relaxing and elegant looking 5-door hatchback. 

The Renault ZOE has been made as standard with nippy acceleration, which is great for everyday driving, plus changing lanes on the motorway quickly with confidence.

If you’re looking to buy an electric car and you really want a great bargain, the Renault ZOEs we currently have for sale will go down a treat!
