Are you ready to make the switch?

Are you ready to make the jump to electric?

 

There are a ton of new cars ready to launch into the New Year! Some of them being electric.

 

With the UK ready to stop production of petrol and diesel cars by 2030, it might be time to have a look to see what’s on the market!

 

January 2021

 

Fiat 500

Slowly but surely more and more cars are turning to electric. The likes of traditional city cars such as the Volkswagen Up, Kia Picanto and now the Fiat 500! With a totally bespoke body kit with an official range of 238 miles. That’s a lot of miles for a little car! The interior is much plusher than its petrol/diesel sister, which helps justify its £30k price tag!  

 

February 2021

 

Volvo XC40 P8

 

Volvo are also making its debut into the electric car world with a family sized SUV. With an impressive 201bhp motor on each axle, the XC40 Recharge can do a staggering 0-62mph in just 4.9 seconds. With an official range of 248 miles and can get an 80% charge within just 40 minutes. The downfall to this vehicle is that it costs £60k, a lot more to its petrol counterpart at just £28k

Orange Citroen SUV Family Car Electric Car

The electric version of the new C4 hatchback is set to launch early 2021 with an official range of 217 miles.

Lexus UX 300e

 Blue Electric Car Lexus

Lexus finally makes its debut into the electric car scene this year with a remake on the UX family SUV. Although for a ‘family car’ it is a little cramped, but has an impressive 196-mile range, and this vehicle massively undercuts its rival the Volvo XC30 Recharge P8 costing a modest £43k.

 

Audi E-tron GT

 Electric Audi A7 E TRON GT

Set to launch early this spring 2021 is the brand-new Audi E-tron GT, modelled after its sister, the Audi A7.

With 0-60mph in just 3.5 seconds, this 282bhp beauty gets a top speed of 149mph and an official range of 248 miles between charges. Although, we have no word yet on the price, so we expect this one to carry a hefty price tag.

 

Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo

Electric Car Porsche

Set to launch this summer is the Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo. The Taycan was originally set to go for sale in 2020 but due to the coronavirus pandemic it was delayed a year. The price is yet to be confirmed for this high demand saloon but expect to pay a four-figure premium on top of this saloons £83k starting price.
