So after 20 years (and 100k miles) of trusty trouble free motoring the cumulative cost of repairing knackered parts on my Corsa is disproportionate to its value so I need (and want) a replacement. I have been keeping track of EVs and that would be my preference going forward for a number of reasons but I also recognising that the cost is large versus similar combustion cars - in particular in the second hand market. Constraints: Family car (4 of us), 200+ mile range due to visiting family I have been considering the following: Kia EV6 - This is my "want" car but £45k for a new one (or £42k for nearly new) is a bit rich for my tastes. I can afford it but don't really want to piss £700+ a month on a car when my current cars cost £700 a year to run! Kia Niro (electric) - Second Hand - Have identified a few low mileage (<20k) "old" e-Niros (i.e. not the new type) for £22-30k. Great range if you grab a 64kWh model. Not the prettiest of cars but apparently a great workhorse car. Hyundai Kona (electric) - Second Hand - As above really in particular as they are sister cars. Nissan Leaf (newer gen)- Second Hand - Can pick up the larger battery pack option (>200 mile range) from around £15k but with a fair chunk of miles up to £30k for nearly new. Concern is around the Chadamo charger as Type 2 chargers look to be the norm now for UK/Europe. Does support Vehicle to Home/Grid which is a nice advantage due to having solar panels. ID3 / Cupra Born - Essentially the same battery platform - Can be had for around the £30k mark as nearly new but could be a bit small for a family of 4 (but maybe not). Suspect there is a healthy VW tax on the ID3 price. Honda Civic (Diesel) - I used to have a 1.6 TDI Civic Sport (2016) as a company car - loved it but handed it back when I changed jobs (just before the pandemic). Can be had around the £8k to £12k mark for the previous gen model (my preferred form). Pros: Cheap(er) Cons: Diesel. Would allow me to see how the electric car market evolves over the next few years and importantly for more 2nd hand electrics to become available. Preference is buying outright (with bank loan) vs lease/PCP unless the monthly on the lease/PCP is small enough (~£300 p/m) to be just another bill. So what have I missed, forgotten or otherwise overlooked? Any feedback from owners of the above? Should I get of my idealistic hobby horse and just buy a cheap 2nd hand combustion car and use the extra money for holidays and house renovations?
