It’s never been a better time to start driving an electric car. We share our top picks for 2022 and how a car subscription could get you into one today.

The best electric cars of 2022

Electric cars are now more popular than ever, and the number of drivers making the switch away from petrol is continuing to grow. The quantity of electric cars on the roads has increased exponentially over the last decade, and nearly 100,000 new electric cars were sold in the UK from January to May of 2022 alone.

Today, drivers opting to go electric can choose from a diverse array of makes and models. Whether you’re looking for something like your favourite old petrol car or you’re ready to make the change to something new, you’ll be able to find the right electric car for you.

From long-range luxury electric cars to reliable electric cars for the whole family, we’ve put together our picks for the best EVs (electric vehicles) you can drive in 2022.
