My next EV

    Currently driving a 2018 Ioniq, have it 3.5years and love it. My husband has seen the light and we want to upgrade the Ioniq to something with 400km ish range to be used as our main car.

    Budget: €40,000

    Year: 201 upwards

    Range: 400km +

    Bodytype: SUV / crossover

    Also needs a decent boot to hold buggy, golf clubs, gaa gear etc

    Currently Considering:

    kia E-Niro and MG SS Exclusive.

    any other recommendations, thoughts, comments, opinions? If you have either of the above and a young family do they work well!?


    **Edit: Should have said it’s not an urgent purchase, anytime in 2023 although ideally first half is fine

    Unfortunately at the moment there are very few options given the required range and budget. New the MG is probably the only viable option, the new e Niro is being quoted here at possibly 48K a big jump on the previous model. New supply is severely constrained with many models being a year of a wait or possibly more. Very few cars popping up second hand and when they do they can often be offered for more than they were new and generally go very quickly so it’s a case of checking daily to see if anything shows up. It is always worth ringing / calling into a dealer for a chat they might have what you want possibly coming in on a trade in etc and you might get what you want. The 400km range is also probably difficult to achieve in reality but check EV database for real world ranges and of course there is a gap between winter and summer ranges

    New Ioniq 5 Executive? Not quite 400km+ range but I find on the very rare occasion I need to charge en-route I'd probably have needed to anyway!

    The eNiro would be tight on clubs and trolley etc. ask Kieran from the Golf Society, he has one

    You'll get a Cupra Born for €38k with 420km range, ID.3 slightly more but they're not a crossover.

    Isn't the basic spec Ioniq 5 €40k?

    Second that. We looked at the eNiro (2020 style) and while it would take our buggy, it's boot space wasn't exactly an upgrade on the Ioniq. Ended up going with an ID4 back when they were reasonably priced.
