Award-winning electric and plug-in hybrid cars

Porsche Taycan Turbo S

The UK’s best new electric (EV) and plug-in hybrid (PHEV) cars for every budget have been revealed at the inaugural What Car? Electric Car Awards.

Held in association with charging point provider Myenergi, the 16 categories were devised to help buyers of every need and budget make the best choice for them.

The best overall electric and plug-in hybrid cars from across the categories will be named at the What Car? Car of the Year Awards in January 2021.

“The variety of electric and plug-in hybrid cars on offer is growing exponentially, which is great news for buyers, because it’s driving up standards,” Steve Huntingford, editor of What Car?.

The Awards were launched following a surge in interest in electric cars online during lockdown. As restrictions eased in early July, 26% of What Car?’s audience said they were more inclined to buy an EV or PHEV as a result of the changed environment they were living in, while interest in the stories outlining the best electric and plug-in hybrid cars on sale today surged, out-performing other areas of the website.
