The Passat Estate GTE scooped the overall Best Electric Car prize, along with winning the Best Buy £20,000-£40,000 category. Meanwhile, Renault’s Zoe Dynamique Nav Rapid Charge took the Best Electric Car for less than £20,000 title for third year running.

Commenting on the decision to give ZOE the award for a third consecutive year, Jim Holder, Editorial Director, What Car? said:

“The Renault Zoe was our favourite electric car for less than £20,000 a year ago, and tweaks to the specification and the added ability to go further have only increased its appeal. The Zoe’s main strength is that it feels like a conventional, stylish, nippy small car that happens to cost pennies to run.

“The electric motor has enough shove for the Zoe to lead the charge away from traffic lights, and the cabin seats four in reasonable comfort. Even the boot is larger than you’ll find in many regular small cars – easily big enough for a week’s shopping.”

    Hmmm, the Passat GTE isn’t a real electric car, now is it? It’s a plug-in hybrid. Either the price was giving to a wrong car, or the name of their categories or awards is wrong.

    The UK government considers PHEVs to be electric, and the media seem to follow that.

    It’s tempting, but I don’t want to start another flame war!

    Yup because that’s sadly what happens. No congratulations and wow isn’t the Zoe doing well in the press/public eye.
