The cheapest electric cars on sale in the UK in 2021

Running down the 10 most affordable EVs on the market, from city cars to family SUVs

The current fuel crisis gripping the UK has, according to some sellers, led to a spike in interest in electric cars.

According to Auto Trader, searches for models like the Hyundai Ioniq 5 and Ford Mustang Mach-E have soared at the same time as drivers queue to fill up their petrol and diesel cars.

While those models are sharp-looking and desirable, they're also relatively expensive, especially compared with a combustion-engined car.

But not all EVs are expensive, so here we’ve rounded up the 10 cheapest new electric cars on the market.

Due to sudden changes to the Plug-in Car Grant earlier this year and the unpredictability around the policy we’ve decided to remove it from our figures so all prices here are before the grant - currently worth £2,500 - is applied.
