Cheapest electric cars 2022: The lowest-priced EVs available to order in the UK right now

Price, performance and range details for the 10 most affordable EVs on the market - from city cars to family SUVs

With fuel prices on a seemingly endless rise and the ban on petrol and diesel cars edging ever closer, it’s no wonder interest in electric cars is increasing.

2021 saw more EVs sold than in the previous five years combined and there is still strong demand for the zero-emissions vehicles despite parts and supply issues.

While many buyers are exploring the higher end of the EV market - with models like the Audi Q4 e-tron, Ford Mustang Mach-e and Tesla Model 3 - not everybody can afford to spend more than £40,000 on a new car.

While those models are sharp-looking and desirable, they're also relatively expensive, especially compared with a combustion-engined car.

But not all EVs are expensive, so here we’ve rounded up the 10 cheapest new electric cars on the market.

Due to last year’s changes to the Plug-in Car Grant and the unpredictability around the policy we’ve decided to remove it from our figures so all prices here are before the grant - currently worth £1,500 - is applied.
