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.
9. MG ZS EV (£28,595)
The ZS was MG’s first electric car and one of the first all-electric models in the C-SUV segment. Like the MG5, what it lacks in glamour, it makes up for with high equipment levels, a decently spacious interior and a 44.5kWh battery that’s good for 163 miles of zero-emissions motoring.
10. Vauxhall Corsa-e (£28,890)
Based on the same new platform as the Peugeot e-208 but undercutting the French car by less than £100, the Corsa-e is Vauxhall’s first all-electric version of its best-selling supermini. Powered by a single electric motor with 134bhp and 192lb ft of torque, the Corsa-e can hit 31mph in 2.8 seconds and 62mph in 8.1 seconds. A 50kWh battery offers up to 209 miles of range and three trim levels keep options simple for buyers.
