With electric cars being less of a window into the future, and more of a sensible proposition for an efficient and cost effective car, there is more and more competition on the market than ever before. At Auto EV we have decided to round up our picks for the top 10 electric cars to consider purchasing in 2019.

BMW i3 at Portsmouth
Featuring in our top 10 list is the BMW i3, one of the more trusted electric vehicles, from the Bavarian auto company. The BMW i3 is a relaxing yet striking car - the car offers incredible efficiency, both in terms of range and the way materials are used to construct the car with many of the interior panels constructed out of recycled material.

BMW i3 interior

The i3 sports contemporary looks and an engaging driving experience, with a 0-30mph speed on par with the BMW M3. BMW made sure to emphasise that this is a car for the future with a carbon fibre chassis meaning not only is it lighter, but stiffer too.
