The electric car segment continues to expand, with more manufacturers introducing a more diverse range of cars.

With a number of important new electric models launching in recent months, we’ve updated our list of the best new EVs on the market today, ranging from compact superminis through to flagship SUVs. Let’s dive in and check them out.

Audi Q8 e-tron

Audi recently updated its e-tron SUV, and in the process changed its name of it to the Q8 e-tron – reflecting its position at the top of the German firm’s line-up. It retains the same focus on comfort and refinement, while its interior is a masterclass in quality and technology.

The main change for 2023 is the addition of significantly larger batteries that have brought a big boost to this SUV’s range, with the top battery model now able to travel up to 330 miles on a charge. A sleeker Sportback model is also offered for those wanting a sportier-looking design.

Audi are currently offering a fantastic deal which includes £5,000 off the purchase price of a Q8 55 e-tron³ and an additional Deposit Contribution of £4,750¹ (8.9% APR representative²) when buying through Solutions PCP.

Jaguar I-Pace

Jaguar’s I-Pace might be getting on a bit now, but this electric SUV is still able to hold its own in an increasingly competitive field. With its striking design, sporty driving experience and upmarket interior, it’s everything expected from a model of this type.

It’s also received a number of small tweaks for 2023 to make it more desirable, including a subtly redesigned exterior and a sportier R-Dynamic package that brings new gloss elements and larger alloy wheels.

Volkswagen ID.Buzz

Volkswagen ID.Buzz has only been on sale for a few months but it’s already causing a significant stir, and recently won top honours at What Car?’s awards. The ID.Buzz is a modern take on Volkswagen’s classic Microbus, with its stunning design being a key draw for customers.

An interesting alternative to a traditional electric SUV, the ID.Buzz also has a modern, tech-filled interior and masses of interior space for up to five occupants. Its large 77kWh battery also offers a respectable range of up to 255 miles.

CUPRA’s Born arrived last year as the brand’s first electric model, and it’s proven a popular choice ever since. Based on the Volkswagen ID.3, it offers a sportier look than its sibling model, as well as a more engaging driving experience to liven it up.

The Born is also practical, well-equipped and features a striking minimalist interior. CUPRA offers a wide choice of powertrains as well, with the largest 77kWh battery model offering an impressive range of up to 343 miles, which is fantastic for a compact car like this.

Peugeot e-208

Peugeot’s electric e-208 is now the most popular compact EV across Europe, with buyers choosing this supermini for its smart design, decent range and high-quality interior that moves Peugeot into premium territory.

But the e-208 gets even more enticing for 2023 with the addition of a revised powertrain. Boasting increased performance thanks to a more powerful electric motor, the e-208 also gets a slightly larger battery that takes the claimed range up to 248 miles.

MG is causing quite a stir in the electric car segment, with this brand’s focus on value for money going down well with buyers. Its latest model is the MG4, a new electric hatchback that offers a range of up to 281 miles.

It’s one of the most affordable electric cars on the market, starting from £26,995, yet still comes with plenty of equipment and MG’s seven-year warranty. The MG4 is also good to drive and offers a smart design, too.

Hyundai IONIQ 6

One of the most hotly-anticipated electric cars in 2023 is the Hyundai Ioniq 6 – a sleek new saloon that arrives to take on the Tesla Model 3. In the design stakes, it already takes the lead, with its streamlined shape allowing for a claimed range of up to 338 miles.

The IONIQ 6 is also absolutely packed full of technology, while its cabin feels particularly modern and upmarket. It’s one of the most interesting electric cars on the sale, and will be capable of turning heads wherever it goes.
