The march of the electric car continues into 2021, with a raft of new entrants adding to what is becoming an increasingly crowded sectorThe Tesla Model 3 takes the new Best Large Electric Car award in a maturing market and does so on the back of its overall victory in the Parkers New Car Awards in 2020. Despite being a few years old now, the Model 3 is still the state of the art, and best all-rounder in this market. 

It finishes ahead of the Kia e-Niro, which is a roomy family hatchback that’s blessed with an impressive near-300-mile range and the Polestar 2, which impressed with its beautifully-crafted and functional Scandi-cool interior and leading-edge Google integration.

Keith Adams, Editor, said: ‘The Tesla Model 3 returns to the winner’s rostrum for 2021. This charismatic EV really delivers where it counts, though, thanks to a long driving range, excellent performance and the advantage of Tesla's unmatched Supercharger network. Top it off with decent leasing deals that can get you in one from around £400 per month when leasing, and you can see why it's won for a second year running.  

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.
