The best buys with monthly running costs:
● Citroen C-Zero £410

Philip Nothard, consumer and retail specialist at HPI, said: “In the UK market it is clear there remains an ‘apprehension’ from used buyers around electric vehicles.
"Range anxiety continues to be a big hurdle, along with charging network coverage. But for a motorist that wants to make the leap there are some good value options out there.
“And while the didn’t make the value list, prestige options such as the Tesla Model S and BMW i8 provide good value used choices that also turn heads.”
