► Shortlist of the three best large electric cars announced today
► Best Large Electric Cars in association with CAR
► Winner to be announced on 26 October 2020
Parkers – the definitive resource for car buying advice in the UK – has partnered CAR to bring you the award for the Best Large Electric Car in the prestigious Parkers New Car Awards 2021. The shortlists have been announced today (9 October) with the Best Large Electric Car brought to you by CAR being one of a total of 21 awards.
So, if you’re looking to buy or lease a large electric car, you know that any one of these will be perfect for a more long-distance plug-in lifestyle. They offer all the ease of driving and low running costs that you expect with an electric car, but with all the latest cutting-edge tech and a 200-plus mile range you expect from a good EV these days.
Could this be the best electric car in the real world? It’s a roomy family hatchback that’s blessed with an impressive amount of equipment for its cash price. The killer punch is its super-efficient battery and motor for a near-300-mile range.
For this start-up brand’s first all-electric car, you have to say that the Polestar 2 is very impressive indeed. It looks the part and has a beautifully-crafted and functional Scandi-cool interior with leading-edge Google integration.
Tesla Model 3
Now firmly established as a big-selling EV, the Tesla Model 3 is the reigning Parkers New Car of The Year on account of its sheer usability and long range. Clever semi-autonomous tech and a thoughtfully-designed interior are the icing on the cake.
Now in its fourth year, the Parkers New Car Awards 2021 reflect the views of Britain’s car-buying public, with winners decided by a combination of the site’s expert reviewers’ verdicts in thousands of miles of road testing and the purchasing habits of the website’s 2.3+ million users* actively involved in the buying process.
Keith Adams, Parkers.co.uk Editor, said: ‘Electric car sales are accelerating as more drivers conclude that they can live with one, but choosing the best is a daunting task. All three are really strong choices for one reason or another. Choosing the winner from this list will be very tough, and we’ll be calling on the team’s 100 years of car reviewing expertise to come up with a winner out of this threesome.’
The Best Large Electric Car will be announced alongside all the winners of the Parkers New Car Awards 2021 on 26 October, and you can also see all shortlisted vehicles in all categories from today on the Parkers website: www.parkers.co.uk/car-awards
