The electrification of the new car market is continuing apace, and the variety of electric models for sale in Ireland is growing by the month, despite challenges in the supply chain. However, prices can range from the expensive to the astronomical, so here we’ve rounded up five of the best-value electric models for sale in Ireland today.
These electric cars offer good value for money for a number of reasons. While list prices are usually still higher than they are for combustion-engined equivalents, the trade-off is low everyday running costs. Another factor to consider is how big a battery you get for your money. Choose a larger capacity, and it’s like buying a petrol or diesel car with a bigger fuel tank – you’ll be able to travel further between charges, which will eliminate any range anxiety you might have about buying an EV in the first place. Electric cars that are able to take a fast charge offer benefits, too, because you’ll spend less time waiting for the battery to be topped up when using the public network of chargers.
We’ve picked five cars that offer a variety of options in terms of value. Prices include incentives available to private buyers at the time of writing.
