    I'd guess it'll be Ioniq 5

    And having driven and assessed them all this is your expert opinion then? ☺️

    No need to be sarky. I said that's my guess as to which car will be chosen as the winner. Doesn't necessarily mean i've driven and assessed any or all of them.

    I put my bet on EV6. Drove neither of those on the list but I can have an opinion based on what I saw and what I would expect from an EV.

    Another bet on the Ioniq 5. Not saying it's the best of the cars listed, but one of the first with latest tech and novel design. The sort of thing Judges like..

    We should have a poll for guesses, but I haven't time to do one. From an aesthetics point of view only the EV6 and Ioniq 5 are standouts, with the new Megane close behind. The Enyaq is more functional and plain IMO, while the Cupra would be at home in Donegal. I like the Mustang, but wish they had dared to give us a more retro low-profile Mustang, although the battery storage question weighs in favour of the popular CUV/SUV design. All in all, I think the Ioniq 5 is the bravest, and the EV6 the most pleasing.

    Also, when are Cork City Council going to get a Mustang to replace the Mondeo? (A tradition from Ford's Cork ancestry and investment in the past.)

    I think out of that lot the Megane E-Tech is the best. Top Gear have already voted it one of there best cars. Its the best looker and has the best interior.

    As for the Ioniq 5 being the bravest I disagree. I think it is the most boring of that lot and the least brave. It looks like something someone without a computer would have designed in the 80s.

    The Kia EV6 is much nicer but the interior just like the VW ID3 and all the rest is such a let down. No soft touch materials anywhere on a 50 grand car crazy. No way would I pay 50k for a car with all hard materials crazy.


    The cupra is nothing special the Ford is a Ford and has a terrible interior, the Peugeot is on ICE car so that will not win and the Skoda while not bad is old compared to the rest. It should have been in last years list but maybe it was not out in time.

    I’d bet on the megane e-tech also. I think it will bring a lot of people into ev ownership.
