Ultimate guide to buying an electric car in this week’s Auto Express

In this week’s Auto Express we take a closer look at electric cars and test the new Mercedes C-Class against the BMW 3 Series

Auto Express Issue 1,706

In this week’s electric car special issue of Auto Express we have the ultimate guide to buying an EV, as we list the best EVs to buy and reveal Britain’s best charging networks.

We also take an in-depth look at electric versus petrol and diesel, and give our verdict on which is best.

Plus, we take a closer look at BMW’s shock new 739bhp XM and have the lowdown on the rebooted Skoda Karoq crossover.

In the drives section we hit the road in the hot Volkswagen ID.4 GTX, try out the latest Suzuki S-Cross SUV and get behind the wheel of the new Porsche Taycan GTS.

If that wasn’t enough we have a compact exec showdown between the all-new Mercedes C-Class and the venerable BMW 3 Series.
