The Most Eco Friendly Electric Cars
Over the past few years, the automotive industry has crucially advanced when it comes to making more eco-friendly vehicles. The introduction of fully electric cars has helped the government's targets as well as reducing emissions.
Most automotive manufacturers have now introduced hybrids and/or fully electric cars, allowing customers to make incremental steps or the full leap into the new sustainable market.
So, are all-electric cars eco-friendly? This seems to be a recurring question when discussing EVs so, to make it easy for you we have put together a list of the most eco-friendly cars we stock at Perrys.
We start with the Citroen e-C4, a sleek and modern design and a very good option for an eco-friendly car. The e-C4 is fitted with a 50kWh battery powering a 100kW electric motor that supports rapid charging, topping up your battery up from 15% to 80% in 30 minutes. The battery provides a 217-mile range, allowing longer journeys to be stress-free. The Citroen battery comes with an eight-year or 100,000-mile warranty for 70% of its original charge capacity. Driving smoothly and relaxed in normal mode will get you upwards of 4 miles per kWh, proving that this is environmentally friendly.
The interior is built to integrate perfectly with you, making every journey enjoyable. The instant acceleration and smooth suspension will make you feel at home and confident, giving you the best driving experience.
With the options of three battery sizes, 45kWh, 58kWh, or 77kWh, the CUPRA Born is appealing to a wide range of individuals. City drivers will be perfectly suited to the 45kWh battery offering a 211-mile range. If you need a longer range, then the 77kWh can offer you 355 miles. All versions of the Born give you eco-friendly charging and are compatible with a 125kW rapid charger. In a 7-minute charge, it can add 62 miles, allowing you plenty of mileage to get to your destination. A full 80% charge will only take you 35 minutes, the time of a coffee. Also, to reduce battery waste on long journeys you can even precondition the Born by using the MYCUPRA app.
The exterior design is sculpted with copper accents and interesting body colours that make the Born unique to you. The micro bucket seats keep you securely in place so you can feel the 50-50 weight distribution at its fullest. Surrounding the driver’s seat is a 12-inch infotainment system and a digital driver’s display, which is positioned for easy access when driving. CUPRA’s technology provides you with driving aids that give you the assistance you need. This includes a top view camera, autonomous braking, Pre-Crash assist, travel assist, adaptive cruise control, traffic sign recognition, auto high beam, lane assist, and intelligent park assist.
The Ford Mustang Mach-e, Ford’s first electric SUV, is a sculpted beauty. Its unique design and performance make it eco-friendly and fast. It’s available with either a 75.5kWh or 98.7kWh battery. The larger of the two comes with the GT model giving it high performance, 0 to 62mph in 3.7 seconds, with instant power and silent acceleration, combining a sports car performance and zero-emission driving.
The Mach-e offers a unique E-latch button system and keyless entry. Once inside the Ford, you’ll see that a 15.5-inch Ford sync touchscreen and a 10.2-inch digital instrument cluster fit within the interiors with cloud-connected in-car communication. The built-in panoramic roof offers the most light, as well as heated front seats and a heated steering wheel for comfortable driving. To make your drive even easier the Mustang Mach-e technology offers an array of driving assist features; this includes adaptive cruise control, intersection assist, evasive steering assist, lane keeping system, blind spot monitoring, and pre-collision assist.
This is Kia’s most dynamic and sustainable car to date. There are two battery sizes available, 58kWh and 77.4kWh. The smaller of the two offers a 248-mile range whereas the larger offers a 316-mile range, allowing for those longer drives and less time between charging. The EV6 is compatible with ultra-rapid charging offering a 60-mile boost in just 4.5 minutes. A charge that gets you to 80% will take around 18 minutes. All the Kia EV6 models come with a 1-year Kia Charge Plus Subscription offering a 15% discount on standard charging.
The entirety of this car is sustainable, even down to the stitching details in the seating. Kia has used sustainable materials including recycled plastics and vegan leathers to make every part as eco-friendly as possible. It also offers a futuristic augmented reality heads-up display that projects information onto your windscreen. Interior includes dual 12.3-inch curved displays. Kia’s technology offers semi-autonomous adaptive cruise control with an auto-changing lane feature and blind spot monitoring.
The MG ZS EV comes with either a 51kWh (standard) or a 72.6kWh (long range) battery, offering a range between 198 to 273 miles and giving the opportunity to city dwellers as well as countryside goers to get to where they need. All variants come with adaptive cruise control, MG pilot traffic jam assist and lane keep assist.

The Trophy models add driving assistance features such as blind spot detection with lane change assist and rear cross-traffic alerts, plus wireless charging, leather upholstery, and heated front seats.
MG has added an app to allow EV owners to connect to their electric vehicle and precondition the car, heat or cool, to get the perfect driving temperature. The app also allows you to unlock and lock the car, as well as monitor charging.
The unique design of the Ioniq 5 offers an incredible array of technology and an efficient charging system. Two battery sizes available are 59kWh and 77kWh offering a 238 to 315 mile range. To charge from 10% to 80% it will take around 18 minutes, making it one of the best charging electric cars on the market. The most unusual feature of the Ioniq 5 is that it has a vehicle-to-load capacity which lets you charge other cars and power external devices. There are also other driving aids including smart cruise control, stop and go and lane follow assist. The interior holds a 12.3-inch touchscreen and digital driver display, giving you clear visibility of all the features. Its spaciousness is impressive allowing for a comfortable journey whether long or short.
