The MG ZS EV offers a lot for the money in the electric car world, with good interior space, a big boot and plenty of standard equipment. The thing to remember, though, is that more expensive electric cars, such as the Nissan Leaf and Kia e-Niro, are generally better to drive and, thanks to better resale values, might not cost you that much more in the long run.

Pros
Lot of room for passengers
Big boot
Well equipped

Cos
Poor predicted resale values
Limited steering wheel adjustment
Not that comfortable or good to drive

By:

Practicality unaffected by EV conversion

CONS
Less range than key rivals
