peppy acceleration,
thoughtfully designed cabin.

Cons
Key rivals offer more driving range,

The Volvo XC40 Recharge Pure Electric has an appealing interior, a decent electric range, rapid performance and impressive safety credentials. It’s expensive next to many rivals, but the lower-spec models stack up fairly well next to similarly premium (if often larger and, in some cases, more fun) alternatives.

Pros
High-quality interior
Rapid performance
Decent range

Cons
Expensive next to many rivals
Fiddly infotainment menus
No traditional PCP finance

PROS
EV-specific design makes for roomy interior
Claimed battery range of up to 316 miles
Costs from £31,085 after plug-in car grant

CONS
You've a little while to wait yet...

By: 
parkers.co.uk

Pros
Spacious cabin and huge boot
Decent to drive and good range too
Very good all-rounder

Cons
Won't set to pulse racing
Laggy infotainment
Options should be cheaper in a Skoda

By: 
carwow.co.uk

Pros
Spacious,
keenly priced,
good tech,
refinement and range

Cons
Ride could be plusher.
Will it actually do 300 miles in the real world?
