Best Small Electric Cars of 2021

With more people making the switch to electric than ever before; more car companies are attempting to meet the demand by creating new and stylish electric vehicles. Whilst most offer more modern technology and fast speeds to entice consumers, most people just want a car that gets them from A to B. Luckily, there are small cars out there for you, but which ones are best? And with destination charging still sparse in most places, is it even worth it in your location?

Here at Elite Vehicle Charging, our mission is to end the charging infrastructure conundrum by providing mobile battery storage EV charging to remote locations across the country. From destination chargers to mobile hire for events, no infrastructure is needed when connecting to our chargers, making them the perfect, most cost-effective option for remote locations. Are you considering opting for an electric vehicle? Read our article to discover some of the top picks for the coming year.

Renault Zoe

A perfect little compact car for getting you from A to B, the Renault Zoe has a 52kWh battery and up to 245 miles of range. Due to the Government’s plan to stop the production of petrol and diesel cars by 2030, the Zoe dropped in price to £25,000. It’s the perfect entryway for those new to the EV driver lifestyle, and CCS rapid charging is now available.

Whilst connecting to the infrastructure may be expensive or impossible in some remote locations, our mobile EV charging solutions here at Elite Vehicle Charging could help solve the dilemma. Our battery storage destination chargers are perfect for hotels, restaurants and supermarkets in a range of off-the-grid locations, as most EV charging stations are connected to the grid. By providing mobile EV chargers, we can accommodate all electric vehicle drivers; encouraging more people to go green today.

Volkswagen e-Up

This may be Volkswagen’s smallest electric car, but it still packs a punch and is a great first car for those new to the electric scene. The latest version now gives 159 WLTP and is cheaper than most small EVs at £30,000. However, it’s only really suited for small drives and running errands, which actually, makes it the perfect small car if you only need it to get you a short distance.

Our mobile storage EV charging points aim to end this talk of “this car will only get you so far,” as we aim to make EV charging widely accessible to EV drivers across the country. By deploying destination charging locations and mobile chargers for events to hire, we’re providing EV drivers with more options, and decreasing the range anxiety as well.

Vauxhall Corsa-e

A recognisable model perfect for those just making the switch, the Vauxhall Corsa-e is an attractive little car. It has a 180-mile everyday driving range, and it’s unique selling point is its 100kW rapid charging compatibility. This makes it a great car for remote driving, as it won’t take as long to charge as most EV cars on those long drives.

With more rapid charging EVs comes the need for rapid charging. For off-the-grid locations, this isn’t always a viable option. With battery storage electric vehicle charging, you can give off-the-grid drivers that helping hand when charging their cars on the road, and provide more charging points for drivers when it comes to long-distance journeys.

Mini Electric

The Mini Cooper has long been a style icon in the vehicle industry. The new electric version is no exception; it keeps its iconic look but has a much better impact on the environment. Its performance is stronger than the previous cars that we’ve listed and claims to boast a 144-mile range.

Our mobile EV chargers are compatible with all makes of electric vehicles, including Tesla, Nissan and Kia. We can deploy our destination and event chargers to off-the-grid locations across the UK, decreasing the range anxiety that most EV drivers have.
