Independent, Expert EV Reviews & Advice Since 2006

City Cars

Green Car Guide has carried out all its own road tests since 2006, in order to focus primarily on a vehicle’s efficiency, including real-world fuel economy/electric range, and how good the car is to drive, along with many other areas such as how practical it is, does it represent good value for money? If the vehicle is designed for off-road use, then we’ll test it off-road. And all of the images you see here are our own photographs of the actual cars that we’ve tested.
