BEST VALUE ELECTRIC CAR 2022 - SKODA ENYAQ

Along with range anxiety the cost of buying an electric car is often presented as a major barrier for making the switch, so while the headlines go to premium models with supercar performance the Best Value Electric Car award is arguably one of the more important ones.

How did it cope with the challenging desert conditions in Morocco? “It’s true that high temperatures don’t usually do batteries much good and have a negative effect on their performance. But this doesn’t apply to the ENYAQ iV: even when the mercury climbed above forty degrees Celsius during the day, we were able to cover over four hundred kilometres on a single charge,” says We Love Cycling project manager Jan Hejna.

The Skoda Enyaq is a worthy winner here, too.

In isolation it’s all the car a family could want, given it’s spacious, stylish, packed with tech as well as being good to drive with decent range and strong performance. Something you can see for yourself in the video review below. But the real trick is the pricing, and the fact the Enyaq doesn’t look that much more expensive to buy than an equivalently sized SUV powered by a conventional internal combustion engine. Yet much cheaper to run. It’s a seriously impressive achievement, and the cherry on top of an already very tasty cake!
