The compact electric small car from VW has a solid range and a fair price. Now it’s sold out! But there are good and cheap alternatives among the small electric cars.

Ghe range is particularly large in the small car segment, where e-cars with low weight, compact design and reasonable range make sense. Renault, Opel, BMW , Citroen and Peugeot have e-city cars in their range of models. With the e-up! and the e-Golf have already successfully gained experience in electromobility. The e-Golf has now been replaced by the ID.3. The e-up !, which was last revamped at the beginning of 2020, in which the range was increased and the price lowered, is now also completely sold out and can no longer be ordered.

E-up !: Alternatives to the VW bestseller

The VW e-up! In terms of format and price, it was classified below the VW ID.3. It was the smallest electric car from Volkswagen and an example of how people in Wolfsburg devote themselves to clean e-mobility. The e-up! a battery with a range of around 260 kilometers, a fast charging system and an attractive price. Now the popular small electric car can no longer be ordered. But the car market has many alternatives in the small electric car segment, which are available at surprisingly low prices on the Carwow new car comparison platform.

The bestseller among small electric cars on the European market comes from the same group. The Zoe scores with e-car fans with its suitability for everyday use and an improved battery, which, depending on the size (41 or 52 kWh), enables a range of up to almost 400 kilometers. As trim levels “Life,” “Experience” and “Intens” and the special “Riviera” are available.

Opel Corsa-e – from 17,987 euros

The small electric car Corsa-e from Opel is in the same price segment as the Zoe. The standard version of the small electric car starts at 17,987 euros . If you decide on one of the four other equipment lines “Edition”, “Elegance”, “GS-Line” or “Ultimate”, the base price increases to 23,329 euros . With an ideal driving style, the battery capacity of 50 kWh is sufficient for almost 340 kilometers. Automobile testers particularly liked the powerful electric motor and the good mix of handling and comfort.

E-cars: Cheaper with a purchase premium

In order to achieve the Europe-wide climate targets, the switch to e-cars is a necessary step. New purchase premiums for e-cars are making electromobility more attractive. An increase in the environmental bonus and the extension of the payment until the end of 2025 create solid incentives. There is also a plan that one million charging points should provide full batteries in Germany by 2030. If the federal government has its way, 7 to 10 million electric cars will ensure clean air and fewer noise emissions by then.
