Best used electric cars for under £10,000

Electric vehicles (EVs) are more popular than ever with May seeing an 18.7% increase in the number of new pure electric vehicles registered, according to the SMMT.

For motorists looking for a used electric vehicle, vehicle valuation experts at HPI have selected five of the best EVs to buy for under £10,000.

“Drivers are becoming increasingly comfortable with electric vehicles as the technology improves,” said Chris Plumb, motoring expert at HPI.

“Second-hand models are becoming more affordable and can offer cost effective motoring. Our picks provide value for money and are likely to hold their value in the years to come.”

Model New Price (£) Target retail value, 15 Plate, 30,000 miles (£)
NISSAN LEAF Visa 5dr Auto (2013 – 2017) 26,125 9,795
RENAULT ZOE i-Expression Nav 5dr Auto (2015 – 2016) 23,440 7,850

PEUGEOT ION 5dr Auto (2011 —-) 20,440 7,095

The entry level Nissan Leaf offers a published range of 124 miles and would interest someone looking for a practical electric family car. With a similar range to the Leaf, the Renault Zoe is seen as an alternative option.

The very similar Citroen C Zero, Mitsubishi I-MIEV and Peugeot ION offer value for money if you are looking to enter the world of EV’s or looking for a cheap second car to run.

With the manufacturers stating they can do around 92 miles on a charge, they are ideal for driving to the station or popping to shops. These cars can cost as little as £1.50 to £2.50 to charge.

Drivers of electric vehicles also benefit from additional savings that include zero road tax, no congestion charges and some councils even offer free on-street parking.
