benefits of electric vehicles charging

With record sales of electric cars yet again in 2020, and that the fact that there are more than 164,000 pure-electric cars now on the UK roads, you may wonder if now is the time to switch to driving an EV. There will come a time when you won’t have much choice – it’s now less than a decade away until the UK Government’s ban on sales of vehicles powered purely by internal combustion engines will come into effect.

One of the main reasons why there’s a boom in electric cars is that newer models are managing longer distances between charges. Most electric vehicles can travel at least 100 miles between charging, while some can now travel at least 200 miles before plugging in. This is due to ever-improving batteries and EV hardware, which is resulting in notable increases in the real-world range of newer electric vehicles. This, combined with quicker charging, often means there’s even less justification for range anxiety. 

For more information on the types of chargers you can connect to, please read our 'Running Costs for Electric Cars 2021 Guide' which goes into this subject in greater detail.

Due to most cars being parked for hours on end outside houses or offices, owners will plug in at home, at work, or both. So, how can you get your EV charged while you’re out and about? At present, there are over 33,000 individual public charging connectors in the UK at approximately 12,000 locations. However, the UK’s charging infrastructure is continuing to expand. 

Not only has Chancellor Rishi Sunak budgeted £500m for fast-charging networks for EVs in 2020, but organisations such as the Brookhouse Group, BP and Engenie are also investing in improving the charging point infrastructure.

To help find charging points when on the move, Smartphone app Zap-Map make these public chargers easy to find. Some of the vehicles in our Top 10 list below have built-in technology to route you to the nearest charging station.

Electric vehicles offer many benefits over conventional petrol or diesel models. Lower fuel costs, reduced maintenance bills, and zero or discounted car tax are just some of the ways that running costs are lowered, while environmental impacts are also significantly reduced. 

The main reduction in running costs is in fuel costs which are around 70% lower for EVs if overnight home charging electricity is used (12-15 p/mile for petrol/diesel vs 3-4 p/mile for EVs). Despite higher energy prices (per kWh) when charging on the public network – around twice the price of domestic electricity tariffs – fuel costs still end up lower than a petrol or diesel car.

Evidence also shows that electric vehicles can reduce service, maintenance and repair costs by more than half in comparison to petrol or diesel alternatives.

Company car users switching to electric vehicles can also gain from the “Benefit-in-Kind” rates being only 1% for the 21/22 financial year and rising only to 2% in the 22/23 FY.

For drivers in and around London, another major running cost-benefit is available as part of the Congestion Charge scheme. All electric cars (this time defined as vehicles that emit up to 75 g/km CO2 and meet at least Euro 5 emissions standards) are eligible for the Ultra-Low Emission Discount, although vehicles need to be registered and pay an annual £10 fee. With an £11.50 payable daily charge, this could provide a potential annual saving of over £2,000.

The cost of purchasing a new electric car is still relatively high, but the goods news is that Fleet UK’s personal and business leasing options can allow you to drive cars with the latest safety and infotainment systems for low, affordable monthly payments.

There are more electric cars than ever before to choose from, we’ve picked a selection of hatchbacks, saloons and SUV’s which we think are some of the best you can currently buy.

Tesla Model 3

tesla model 3 image2

The Tesla Model 3 is Tesla’s cheapest electric car and is the best-selling electric car in the world, with well over 500,000 units delivered. Its range, technology and charging infrastructure are difficult to beat, especially when you consider the affordable monthly payments with Fleet UK’s personal or business leasing plans, which is just as well as it’s not a cheap car to buy outright.

There are three versions of the Model 3 in the UK: the Standard Range Plus, the Long Range and the flagship Performance. The Standard Range Plus is WLTP-certified for 254 miles of the claimed range. The Long Range steps up the range to an impressive 348 miles. Although the Performance version has a range of 329 miles it will make you feel you’re in a supercar as it goes from standstill to 60mph in just 3.2 seconds.

Would leasing a Tesla Model 3 make sense for your next company car? Absolutely! The Tesla will profit from the Benefit-in-Kind company-car tax being just 1% in the 2021/22 tax year, rising to 2% in 2022/23.

Tesla offers a standard four-year/50,000-mile warranty that exceeds the warranties offered by its rivals Audi, BMW, Mercedes and Jaguar. Also, the car’s batteries receive an eight-year/100,000-mile warranty and will also be refurbished or replaced by Tesla if they fall below 70% of their as-new performance within that time. This is unlikely to happen though given Tesla’s fantastic reputation for battery longevity.

From a safety point of view, the Model 3 received Euro NCAP’s maximum five-star rating and Tesla leads the industry for semi-autonomous driving systems as well as scoring 94% in the Safety Assist category. Some of the safety features include lane keep assist, parking aids, traffic sign recognition and a full suite of airbags. For £5,800 you can have an option to see the car change lane for you and even leave a slip road off a motorway.

The Model 3 comes with a lot of the equipment you would want as standard, such as a keyless entry system that automatically recognises your phone as the key, as well as a tinted glass roof, heated front seats, a 15-inch touchscreen, four USB charging ports and docking for two smartphones. While the vehicle doesn’t support Apple CarPlay or Android Auto, its single infotainment screen will offer all the functionality you need – including maps, navigation, phone connectivity and music streaming. And if you’re feeling brave, you can even try out the karaoke feature.

For more information on the AutoTrader “New Car” award won by the Model 3 in 2020 read more here.

Polestar 2

polestar 2 1920 by 750

Polestar is an electric focussed brand that is an off-shoot from Swedish firm Volvo. The Polestar 2 is the fledgling company’s second car and it stands a real chance of stardom as well as giving Tesla a real run for their money with the Model 3.

Based on the same underpinnings as the Volvo’s XC40 Recharge Pure Electric P8 (a brilliant family SUV, reviewed further down the list), the Polestar 2 is a five-door hatchback executive car that is capable of up to 292 miles on a full charge.

So what makes the Polestar 2 so special? For a start, its Scandinavian elegance is certainly evident on the outside, where the 2 has simple but bold lines, including its Thor-hammer LED daytime running lights at the front and rear light bar borrowed from the 80’s classic RoboCop. It looks taller than a typical hatchback, thanks to a black strip that runs along its sills and over its wheel arches.

The interior also has its own unique feel and the upmarket quality which most buyers come to expect from Volvo is certainly evident here in the Polestar 2. The all singing and dancing part of the interior is the 11.0-inch iPad-like touchscreen infotainment system found on the centre of the dash – it’s easy to use and it controls everything from the navigation to the stereo and the heating. 

The infotainment system was developed with Android and standard features include Google Maps and Google Assistant for natural speech voice control. Apple’s CarPlay should be added soon as part of an over-the-air update. You also have a separate 12.3-inch digital instrument display right in front of the driver.

There is only one trim, but its vast array of standard features includes: LED headlights, a 360-degree camera, adaptive cruise control, front and rear parking sensors, keyless entry, power-folding door mirrors, keyless entry, heated front and rear seats, a heated steering wheel, dual-zone climate control. Excellent audio is provided by a Harman Kardon stereo.

The Polestar 2 isn’t short on safety features either. You get a Collision Mitigation system, which uses front and rear-facing radars to take 'preventative measures' when a crash is likely to occur; these include warning the driver by pulsing through the brake pedal or visual and audio cues, followed by an application of the brakes if required. The system also incorporates steering assistance, seatbelt pre-tensioners and automatic pre-braking.

Other standard safety systems include road-sign recognition, adaptive cruise control with stop-go functionality, 'Pilot Assist' lane-keeping assistance, cross-traffic alert, blind-spot monitoring, a 360-degree camera and all-round parking sensors. It's worth noting that many of these features, including adaptive cruise, are optional extras on the rival Jaguar I-Pace.

Although the Tesla Model 3 is a quicker electric car, the Polestar 2 still has performance figures to embarrass most sports cars. The 78kWh battery and two electric motors produce 402bhp and 487lb-ft of torque, enabling the Polestar 2 to sprint from 0 to 62mph in only 4.7 seconds. It will certainly feel quick driving around town or the city.

It only takes as little as 40 minutes if you charge the 2 using a public 150kw charger. If you want to charge it using a home wallcharger it will take just over 8 hours, costing around £11 – which is still around £20 cheaper than fuelling the average petrol car over the same distance.

With the Polestar 2 being much cheaper than other electric cars with the same qualities such as Audi’s E-tron and Jaguar’s I-Pace, you should give this car serious consideration.

Hyundai Ioniq

hyundai ioniq electric

Released initially in 2016, the Ioniq Electric was Hyundai’s first foray into the electric car world and received its last refresh towards the end of 2019. The latest version of this 100% electric model is a 5-door hatchback which comes with two trims, the entry-level Premium spec and the top-of-the-range Premium SE level. 

The base Premium version comes with an impressive spec, such as 16-inch alloy wheels, a wireless smartphone charging pad, a heated steering wheel and front seats, a 10.25-inch infotainment system and compatibility with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

The up-market Premium SE version adds some nice touches such as chrome door handles and privacy glass. The front leather seats are not only heated but ventilated as well. Plus, the driver’s seat has a memory function while the rear, outermost seats are heated.

Hyundai has also added an excellent range of active driver assistance systems to both trims, such as high-beam assist, a rear-view monitor, smart cruise control, automatic emergency braking and rear parking sensors. The Premium SE version is also fitted with lane follow assist and rear cross-traffic alert technology.

On a full charge, the Ioniq Electric now offers 193 miles of range, powered from a 38.3kWh lithium-ion battery, which is an increase from the 174 miles of the old version. 

Some of the clever functions offered by the Ioniq includes the ‘ECO driving’ menu which lets you review the electrical efficiency achieved on previous journeys, while the 'energy consumption' section provides a real-time display show which of the Ioniq's systems are drawing power at any given moment. For example, this means you can accurately see the effect of turning on the seat heaters on a cold day and the subsequent effect on range. It's very impressive indeed; perhaps second only to BMW's infotainment set-up.

On top of the impressive list of safety and infotainment kit provided, Hyundai also provides the “BlueLink” app which allows users to monitor charging remotely. With regards to charging, you can expect a 50kW, Type 2 public charger to deliver a 0-80% charge in under an hour, while a home wallbox will perform a full top-up in six hours and five minutes.

The Ioniq’s single electric motor produces 134bhp, with 0-62mph achieved in a very reasonable 9.7 seconds en route to a top speed of 96mph. There’s also enough performance to ensure you can easily overtake at motorway speeds.


Volkswagen’s ID.3 might sound like a product placement involving a Star Wars character, but it’s actually a very important car for the brand. The ID.3 is VW’s first electric car based on a bespoke electric car platform and has pretty much replaced the previous e-Golf as the family-sized choice for those with an environmentally friendly conscience.

At present, the ID.3 only comes with the choice of two battery sizes:

  • The medium 58kWh, which comes attached to a 201bhp motor and has an official WLTP range of up to 263 miles
  • The larger 77kWh version powers the same 201bhp motor but can do up to 342 miles on a charge

2021 will see a smaller and cheaper 48kWh battery with a 148bhp motor introduced which will have a range of up to 205 miles.

In terms of performance, the 58kWh battery and 201bhp motor delivers an impressive 0-62mph in 7.3 seconds and costs only £9.30 for a full charge. While this is much slower than the likes of the Tesla Model 3, this five-door hatchback is still very speedy off the line and there’s enough acceleration to overtake on the motorway.

The ID.3 features a futuristic-looking interior design, based heavily around its 10-inch touchscreen infotainment screen and touch-sensitive buttons. Standard equipment on every ID.3 includes LED headlights, all-around parking sensors, adaptive cruise control, sat-nav and keyless start. There’s also a digital dash (Knight Rider anyone?), lane keep assist and heated front seats. The infotainment system is compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

The Business model adds the Design Pack, which includes ambient lighting, LED rear lights, tinted windows and a light band between the headlights and the VW logo. Also, there’s the Assistance Pack, adding illuminated door handles, keyless entry and a rear-view camera for easy parking. The Family model comes with all that and more, as it comes with the Comfort Pack Plus, which adds climate control, an auto-dimming main mirror and a variable boot floor.

The ID.3 is a showcase for VW's latest technology, and that extends to its safety kit. Features like autonomous emergency braking with pedestrian detection are fitted as standard. This earned the vehicle a maximum five-star score when it was tested by Euro NCAP in late 2020. Overall, it was awarded 87% and 89% for adult and child occupant protection respectively.

Jaguar I-Pace

jaguar i pace 1920 by 750

The I-Pace was Jaguar’s first attempt at an electric vehicle, and boy did this head-turning SUV nail the brief, having won more than 80 global awards after its launch in 2018.

The I-Pace received an update in 2020 to add some improved technology. This included the Pivi Pro, which replaced the Touch Pro Duo infotainment system within the same 10.25-inch touchscreen display. The Pivi Pro has transformed the interior experience. The screens are brighter, sharper and more logically laid out, with every command responded to with excellent speed. Additional features provided by the Pivi Pro includes a predicted range at the journey’s end and providing local charging costs.

Also new to the updated 2020 I-Pace model is the ClearSight rearview digital camera system which feeds a high-definition wide-angle view from a roof-mounted camera onto the rear-view mirror, providing the driver with an unobstructed view of the rear.

Jaguar’s also improved the charging capability of the I-Pace, integrating a new three-phase 11kW inbuilt charger, allowing for faster at-home charging than was previously capable. Due to the large battery pack, this now makes it possible to fully charge the I-Pace from near-empty at home overnight.

The updated I-Pace model still has a 90kWh battery pack and a 292-mile WLTP certified range. The two electric motors produce a combined 394bhp which will get the I-Pace from standstill to 62mph in 4.8 seconds and will outrun most sports cars such as the Porsche Cayman. 

As things stand with our charging infrastructure, spending 60 minutes using a public 50KW fast-charger is enough for a 168-mile range, while a full charge takes around 13 hours from a 7KW household wall charger and cost you roughly £13.

The I-Pace is available in three core trim levels, called S, SE and HSE. The entry-level S has 18-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights, sports seats, a 10-inch touchscreen, sat-nav, DAB radio, cruise control and a rear camera. 

The SE gets 20-inch alloy wheels, Premium LED headlights with daytime running lights, a powered tailgate, auto-dimming power-folding wing mirrors and leather upholstery. 

The top of the range HSE has an alternative 20-inch alloy wheel design, matrix LED headlights, gesture-controlled tailgate, Windsor leather upholstery and a surround-sound stereo.

The I-Pace comes fitted with bundles of safety kit such as an external sound system which emits an external acoustic signal at speeds under 12mph to help make pedestrians aware of the car’s presence.

Standard driver assistance features include: 3D surround camera, emergency braking, cruise control and speed limiter, traffic sign recognition, driver condition monitor, lane keep assist and front and rear parking aid. Optional packs are available to provide blind spot assist, rear traffic monitoring and clear exit monitor.

Company car drivers will also be drawn to the I-Pace by its 0% Benefit-in-Kind tax liability which will cut monthly bills significantly.

Audi E-tron

audi e tron

This is Audi’s first-ever full-production electric car which initially went on sale in 2019. The e-Tron is well-built, exudes Audi quality and is a highly desirable and practical Audi SUV providing serious competition to the Jaguar I-Pace or Mercedes EQC.

In terms of performance, the e-Tron certainly isn’t slow and the entry-level 50 quattro model has 309bhp which can do a sprint of 0-60mph in 6.8 seconds. On a full battery, the E-tron can do approximately 198 miles, although the 55 quattro extends the range up to 254 miles. 150kW rapid charging stations allow the E-tron to be charged from flat up to 80% capacity in only 30 minutes and fully charge from flat in 50 minutes. 

Topping up the E-tron’s battery from empty to full can take nine hours if using a dedicated wallbox at home and will cost you around £14 (depending on your electricity tariff), saving you £17 against driving a petrol vehicle the same distance.

The standard e-tron is available in six trim levels: Technik, Sport, S Line, Black Edition, Vorsprung and e-tron S.

The list of standard equipment for the entry-level Technik trim includes heated front seats, part-leather upholstery, two-zone climate control, power-folding door mirrors, cruise control, an auto-dimming rear-view mirror and an electric tailgate. Plus there are charging points on both sides of the car, so you never have to drag cables over the top of it.

Like all of Audi’s larger new-generation models, the E-tron makes use of the latest MMI Navigation Plus with MMI Touch infotainment hardware. Fitted as standard, this set-up comprises a 10.1in primary screen, which is complemented by a smaller 8.6in display beneath. The graphical sophistication of both is highly impressive and the software the system employs is easy enough to learn your way around.

All versions of the E-tron come with low-speed automatic emergency braking and lane-keeping assistance. There’s a ton more safety aids on the options list too. Euro NCAP awarded the E-tron with its maximum five-star rating and they also confirmed the car to be one of the safest premium electric cars – it beat Jaguar’s I-Pace for child occupant protection. Audi supplies a three-year, 60,000-mile warranty, while the battery is covered for eight years or 100,000 miles.

Peugeot e-208

peugeot e 208 1

For petrol, diesel or hybrid drivers looking to switch to a pure-electric car, the Peugeot e-208 is a great place to start. It looks cool, has a decent range and is a more practical day-to-day car than the Mini Electric. In fact, the e-208 won the “Best Small Electric Car” category in CarWow’s 2021 Car of the Year awards.

It only takes 30 minutes to boost the e-208’s 50kwh battery from flat to 80% charge, as it can accept 100kW DC charging. You can charge the e-208 in 7 hours overnight at home using a 7kW wall charger - and should only cost between £8 to £9 depending on your electricity tariff. A full battery can provide a range of up to 217 miles between charges.

Like most electric cars the e-208 accelerates briskly with its 136bph electric motor in response to a press of the throttle. The e-208 is capable of sprinting from 0-62mph in 8.1 seconds – half a second quicker than the most powerful 130bhp petrol version - but it tops out at 93mph. On the motorway, the acceleration is pretty good so you shouldn’t have any problems getting up to 70mph to overtake.

A 7.0in capacitive touchscreen infotainment system is standard on most 208 models, but the Premium (£650) upgrade of our car swaps it for a 10.0in set-up that adds sat-nav (including a three-year subscription to TomTom Live) to the existing Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and DAB radio. It also links to your smartphone using Peugeot MyApp, which lets you remotely check on the car’s range, plus schedule charging and pre-programme the climate control.

There’s a host of standard driver aids on the e-208, including autonomous emergency braking, lane-keeping assistance and traffic-sign recognition that beams the relevant speed limit onto your dials.

However, you do have to go for GT Line or GT trim to get upgraded autonomous emergency braking that uses radar rather than a camera-based sensor, and which can respond to a cyclist or pedestrian as well as a vehicle. You also only get adaptive cruise control as standard on the GT trim – it’s optional on the GT Line.

Overall, the e-208 is a smart, grown-up package that’s fun to drive and has a useful range and rapid-charging capability.

Volvo XC40 Recharge Pure Electric P8

volvo xc40 recharge pure electric p8 1920 by 750

Volvo’s first fully pure-electric car provides stern competition against the Jaguar I-Pace or the Audi E-tron by providing some serious kit for your money: two electric motors, one of the front axle and another on the rear provide 402bhp. The 660Nm of torque is even more than a Nissan GT-R and it contributes to the P8 achieving 0-62mph in only 4.9 seconds.

The XC40 Recharge P8 charges pretty fast. If charging using 150kW rapid charging you can fill from empty to 80% in just 40 minutes. A full charge at home can also be achieved overnight to ensure you’ve got the maximum 257-mile range every morning.

If you’re fed up with having a myriad of various driving modes found on most modern cars, you will appreciate that there are no such options to be found on the XC Recharge P8. There’s no comfort setting, sport mode, no ice or snow mode. There isn’t even a starter button as the vehicle will start when you sit down, thanks to pressure sensors in the seat. You just get in, push the gear into D and drive – just like a Tesla.

Standard equipment levels are high and include a 12.3-inch digital instrument panel with configurable EV-specific displays, panoramic sunroof, heated front power seats, and inductive charging for your smartphone.

The 9.0-inch infotainment system is powered by an Android operating system and has a raft of Google features including mapping, audio, phone and the last-used app. You do have the ability to add further apps from the Google Play store. For example, you can install Spotify, Audible or a podcasting app. Don’t worry iPhone users, you can still connect via Bluetooth for calls or stream audio from the phone. 

The mapping is provided by Google Maps which is better at negotiating traffic than most other in-built sat navs. In addition, the mapping also integrates with the car’s onboard computer to tell you how much battery will be remaining when you reach your destination.

Volvo claims that the Pure Electric P8 is one of the safest cars on the road. The battery is contained in a bespoke safety cage, and the vehicle is fitted with all-around “next-gen” radars, cameras and ultrasonic sensors that detect cyclists, pedestrians, large animals and other vehicles to help avoid collisions at any speed. Additional standard safety features include lane keep assist, blind-spot and cross-traffic alert, and rear collision alert.

There is no doubt that the Volvo XC40 Pure Electric P8 is a fabulous SUV to drive. It’s great to look at, sit in and drive, and the comforts levels (even rear passengers get heated seats) and technology are first rate.

Kia Soul

kia soul 1920 by 770

The Kia Soul is a compelling electric car with funky looks, designed to provoke a reaction from passers-by and will help you stand out from the crowd. The Soul offers excellent performance, refinement, comfort as well as some of the latest in-car entertainment and safety technology. Not only is this available to lease on low monthly payments with our personal or business leasing plans, but the small running costs make this a sensible choice for a family electric car.

The Soul uses the same 64kWh lithium-ion battery pack and powertrain as the e-Niro which send 201bhp and 395Nm of torque to the front wheels. The Soul will speedily get you around your town or city as it’s capable of 0-60mph in an impressive 7.6 seconds and its single electric motor provides a range of 280 miles on a single charge. It won’t let you down on the motorway either, as a quick jab of the accelerator will easily get you into gaps with ease.

If you plug the Kia Soul into a 100kW DC charger, the battery will be charged from flat up to 80% in only 54 mins. Or, using a Type 2 cable with a 7.2kW home wallbox charger will complete a full top-up in just over nine and a half hours, costing you around £9.

The interior has a 7.0-inch digital display behind the steering wheel as well as an excellent 10.25-inch colour touchscreen with sat-nav – it’s also compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. 

The Soul certainly isn’t lacking when it comes to either safety or entertainment equipment. Its highly-equipped trim includes LED lights, rear privacy glass, electric and heated wing mirrors, rain-sensing wipers, leather upholstery, heated front seats and steering wheel, adaptive smart cruise control, an auto-dimming rear-view mirror, a head-up display, DAB radio, a reversing camera, rear parking sensors, wireless phone charging and a 10-speaker Harman Kardon sound system. 

And if that wasn’t enough, there’s also driver safety aids such as blind-spot detection, forward collision advance, lane following assist and lane keep assist.

Kia also provides a reassuring seven-year, 100,000-mile warranty and achieved Euro NCAP’s maximum five-star rating.

Honda e

honda e 1920 by 750

The Honda e is the Japanese brand’s first electric car for Europe, and will certainly turn lots of heads with its retro styling. So much so that many of the crowd’s jaws dropped when it was first revealed at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show. This is a futuristic car, with flush door handles and uses cameras instead of door mirrors.

The inside of the Honda e is dominated by an infotainment system that spans the full width of the dashboard and has more screens than a Curry’s showroom. There’s an 8.0-inch screen that serves as an instrument cluster and it displays information such as your speed and remaining range. This screen is joined to not one but two 12.3-inch infotainment touchscreens. 

The dashboard is flanked on both sides by 6.0-inch screens displaying a live feed from the camera “door mirrors”. Oh, that’s not all of the screens by the way! The Honda e Advance model’s rear-view mirror can also display a live camera feed from directly behind the car.

Want to keep your family or yourself entertained while waiting for the battery to charge? No problem, you can turn the two touchscreens into one giant aquarium and watch virtual fish swimming around. Or kids can seek more advanced entertainment by plugging a video games console into an HDMI port. There are plenty of USB ports as well to help charge your tablets or smartphones.

There’s an impressive array of standard safety features such as lead car departure notification system, lane keep assist, forward collision warning, traffic sign recognition and adaptive cruise control. Useful standard interior features include heated front seats, a leather steering wheel, climate control air-con. 

Standard exterior features include automatic rain-sensing wipers, LED front fog lights, LED rear lights and an automatic coming/leaving home lighting function.

Honda says that owners can achieve 80% battery charge in 30 mins using a 100kW fast charger using a CCS2 plug, while home charging will take a little over four hours. The lithium-ion batteries are mounted as low as possible in the floorplan and capacity is rated at 35.5kWh, which is paired to a single electric motor available in two power outputs – 134 or 152bhp (both with 232lb-ft of torque). It's enough thrust to guarantee a 0-62mph dash in nine seconds for the less powerful E, and 8.0sec for the more powerful Honda E Advance. 

On a single charge Honda reckons you can achieve a range of 125 miles, which is 35 miles fewer than a BMW i3, but the Honda e was built specifically for short trips around towns or cities.

You can’t go wrong with this fun, comfortable, stylish and tech-laden electric car.
