Top 5 Electric SUV
With electric cars becoming cheaper to run, improving technologies and the looming petrol ban in the UK, combined with customers increasing demand for SUVs, we have put together a top 5 of the most popular electric SUVs here at Perrys.
Hyundai Kona Electric
First on our list is the Hyundai Kona Electric. This model is available with two choices of batteries; a smaller 39 kWh one with a range of 180 miles on a single charge, or a bigger 64 kWh battery with a range of 279 miles, allowing you to pick the best one depending on your driving needs. Whether you choose one or the other, Hyundai claims that if you’re carrying out a long-distance drive and you’re almost out of charge, a 100-kW fast charger (these are most commonly found on the motorway) will allow you to recharge your car up to 80% in less than 1h. The Kona Electric features lane assist, blind spot collision assist, speed limiter, adaptive cruise control and smart regenerative braking; which tops up your battery by constantly calculating the optimum level of braking regeneration based on the vehicle ahead of you. Inside it also features a 10.25-inch touchscreen display compatible with Apple Car Play and Android Audio, sat nav and wireless charging. And last but not least, with its 332 litres of storage space, it’s perfect for shorter and longer drives alike, combining comfort and style.

Ford Mustang Mach-e
If you’re looking for a more family-oriented car, then the Ford Mustang Mach-e may be the right car for you. It’s Ford’s first fully electric SUV, and despite being named after the iconic classic model, it has little to do with it. It features a sporty exterior combined with the practicality of an SUV. The Mustang Mach-e has a choice of two batteries, a 68 kWh or a 98 kWh one, with the former providing a 240-mile range and the latter a 379-mile one. The Mach-e features comfortable legroom, a 402-litre boot space, perfect for the holidays, and a whole set of driving aids such as different drive modes, adaptive cruise control, pre-collision assist, blind spot information and cross-traffic alerts, evasive steering, auto high beam, driver profile and personalisation and remote vehicle control. When it comes to infotainment, it features a 15.5-inch display compatible with all your Apple Car Play and Android Audio needs, as well as Wireless device charging, available as standard.

A surprisingly large SUV, the Kia EV6 comes with a 77.6 kWh battery offering a range of well over 300 miles and making it the perfect car for longer drives and holidays. With a 238-kWh charger, you will even be able to top up the battery to 80% in less than 20 minutes, similarly to a Tesla Model Y. All versions of the EV6 come with a 12.3 inches touchscreen display that is easy to use as well as responsive (so it won’t distract you when you drive). The display is compatible with both Apple Car Play and Android Audio and all EV6 models also feature a wireless phone charging system. Due to its size, with the Kia EV6 you won’t have any legroom or headroom issues, even if you’re over 6ft tall. It has a remarkable 490-litre boot space, perfect for suitcases and carry-on; however, you’ll also have extra space on the floor under the seats if you need to. Lastly, when it comes to driving aids, the EV6 features forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, pedestrian recognition, blind spot detection and cross-traffic alerts, just to name a few. This is the perfect car for you if you’re looking for a longer range without sacrificing storage space.
