7 Best Electric Cars 2022 – A look at New and Exciting EVs

With the electric car market evolving so quickly, it’s hard to know whether the cars you’re looking at are the best when it comes to electric performance. Today, I’m going to share a list of what I think are the best electric cars currently on the market in 2022:

7. Fiat 500 e
6. Honda E
5. Volkswagen ID 4
4. Jaguar I Pace
3. Tesla Model S
2. Audi RS E Tron GT
1. Porsche Taycan

Which Electric Car Is The Best?

7. Fiat 500 e

Fiat 500 electric

In 2022, Fiat’s 500 e is one of the most affordable electric cars. Available in two battery options with up to 199 miles per charge, it’s a fantastic small electric car. There’s also an option for a 118bhp motor and a top speed of 93mph. The electric Fiat 500 has a starting price of just £23,835 on the road (OTR) – significantly less than other EVs on this list.

6. Honda E

The Honda e is the marque’s first mass-production, all-electric car. The Honda e is slightly bigger than the 500 e above but has a more futuristic design. Honda replaced traditional wing mirrors with external cameras, and the interior has more screens than a cinema. The Honda E comes with a 35.5kWh battery and 137 miles of range. It’s slower than the 500 e and has less range, yet, the starting price for this Honda e is £29,605.

5. Volkswagen ID 4

The Volkswagen ID 4 is a fully electric family crossover. It’s a similar size to the Tiguan, with more interior space. It’s built on Volkswagen’s electric-specific platform, making it rear-wheel-drive. Although, you can now have a four-wheel-drive ID4 GTX.

The ID 4 has two different battery sizes — 52 kWh and 77 kWh — with ranges of up to 308 miles. On top of this, there are six specs, so you’re guaranteed to find one for you. Prices start from £36,550 but creep over £57,000 for fully-loaded versions.

4. Jaguar I Pace

Jaguar I Pace

The Jaguar I Pace was the first electric vehicle from JLR, and it sent shockwaves through the EV market. And not only because it performed a barrel roll. The car has a 292-mile range, a 0-60 time of 4.5 seconds and excellent performance for an EV. Permanent four-wheel-drive and even weight distribution make this a very engaging EV to drive. It also has unique features, such as gesture control and an augmented reality heads up display. Jaguar plans to release two more EVs in 2022, so we might see even more innovation from this brand in the future.

3. Tesla Model S

Although the Tesla Model S has been around since 2012, it only recently started offering long-range variants with better performance. This EV eats supercars for breakfast.

The Model S has one of the best batteries in an EV car at 100kWh, and two electric motors propel the car from 0-60mp in 3.1 seconds! The instant torque and four-wheel drive give the Model S the advantage over the likes of Lamborghini and McLaren. When not racing, you’ll achieve up to 405 miles of range. But these great benefits will cost you at least £73,990.

2. Audi RS E Tron GT

Audi RS E Tron GT

Audi has been developing electric vehicles for years now, but their latest could be one of the best yet! Do you remember the scene from The Avengers when Tony Stark pulled up in a cool, futuristic car? That was the Audi E Tron GT. Imagine that but with RS design and power.

I will be test driving the Audi E Tron GT in June with Audi UK. I will deliver a full write-up for you, so be sure to follow my Instagram to see it first!

1. Porsche Taycan

The Porsche Taycan shouldn’t be too different from the Audi E Tron GT. But even though they are manufactured by the same company and based on the same platform, they are not twins. The Taycan has batteries between 75kWh – 93kWh and a cautious upper range of 280 miles. The drive is near perfect. Even a purist will find the handling of the Taycan thrilling, as with any other Porsche.

The best part of it – the base model with the 75kWh battery is joyful, so you don’t need to break the bank to have fun. That said, it is still a Porsche. The starting price for the Taycan is £70,690. Although, it is cheaper than the Tesla Model S and is superior in quality.

This list of the 7 best electric cars in 2022 is just some of my favourites. You can see more electric car reviews on my YouTube by clicking here.
