Renault Zoe
5 doors/5 seats and spacious for its size.

The world’s best selling plug in electric vehicle. 5 doors/5seats hatchback comes in two power versions, 24 kWh and 30 kWh. The 24kWh give an official range of 124 miles, the 30kWh 155 miles.

Renault Twizy ZE
Seating for 2 (1+1 behind driver), the Twizy costs barely anything to run and is great fun to drive. A top speed of 50 mph but it feels quicker. Consider it a cross between a motorbike and a car. Stirling Moss owns a custom one! Small enough to park at 90 degrees.
