5 new models available for less than €300/month

Even with government help, electric cars are still quite expensive. But with the financing solutions that exist today, it is possible to afford an electric model for acceptable monthly payments. We have selected 5 models for you under 300 euros per month.

At the beginning of the year, we offer you our selection of the 5 electric cars available for less than €100/month. They weren’t numerous, but some interesting models emerged, including the very successful MG ZS EV or the queen of city electric cars, the Renault Twingo E-Tech.

A little later, we increased the budget by going between 100 and 200 €/month, with more versatile models in the lot like the Opel Mokka-e or the Peugeot e-208.

From now on, we will move on to the slice above, namely the one between 200 and 300 €/month. A pretty decent budget for a good electric car, enough to touch some top-tier models.

Renault Mégane E-Tech electric from €260/month

This is the novelty of the year among French electric cars. We had the opportunity to try it and we were, at the very least, won over by the new electric Renault Mégane E-Tech. While not everything is perfect, the diamond company’s electric has serious assets to become the best-selling electric car in France.

The range is announced at 300 km WLTP for the model in question, namely the Mégane E-Tech EV40. It has a battery with a capacity of 44 kWh and an electric motor with a power of 130 horsepower.

Electric Kia e-Niro from €269/month

The next generation Kia Niro has just been introduced, but financing offers are now available. We haven’t had the chance to test the car yet, but on paper the numbers are interesting, very interesting indeed, with particularly good range for really versatile use.

Kia is currently offering its new Niro with a single battery in France. It has a capacity of 64.8 kWh and a range of 463 km according to the brand’s estimates. It has a single 204 horsepower electric motor.

Volkswagen ID.3 from €279/month

A few weeks ago, the supply around the Volkswagen ID.3 was greatly reduced in France, mainly due to the shortage of components, but also the low sales volumes of the small battery. The big 77 kWh battery has also disappeared, for now, from the catalogue.

At the time of writing, the Volkswagen ID.3 is only available with a 58 kWh battery, giving it an advertised range of 425 km. It is linked to an electric motor with a power of 204 horsepower. The car is only available in the “Active” version.

  • Contribution (bonus and conversion premium deducted): € 4,000
  • Financing duration: 37 month
  • Mileage: 30,000 km (i.e. 10,000 km per year)
  • Monthly payments: 279 euros
  • Total cost (contribution + monthly payments): 14,044 euros

Hyundai Ioniq 5 from €279/month

A technical cousin of the Kia EV6, the Hyundai Ioniq 5 is a successful electric car that we managed to control last year. It is a very sophisticated model with the right equipment, but the Korean company manages to offer its crossover below the threshold of €300/month.

The Ioniq 5 is available with two batteries, the smaller 58 kWh and the larger 73 kWh. The model covered by the offer benefits from the smallest, but this model nevertheless claims a range of 384 km according to the WLTP cycle. The set is powered by a 170 horsepower engine.

  • Contribution (bonus deducted): € 4,820
  • Financing duration: 37 month
  • Mileage: 30,000 km (i.e. 10,000 km per year)
  • Monthly payments: 279 euros
  • Total cost (contribution + monthly payments): 14,864 euros

Citroën ë-C4 from €289/month

The Citroën ë-C4 is the technical cousin of the Peugeot e-208 and other DS 3 Crossback E-Tense. Citroën’s electric sedan emphasizes comfort and unconventional style.

At Citroën, the choice is simple, there is only one battery available, advertised at 50 kWh. Its autonomy is announced around 340 km on a single charge, but the relatively high consumption, which we were able to notice during our test, does not allow us to reach this value in mixed use. The car is powered by a 136 horsepower engine. The advantage of this offer over the others is that Citroën will not ask you for any contribution, which will be absorbed by the ecological bonus and the conversion bonus.

  • Contribution (bonus and conversion premium deducted): 0 euros
  • Financing duration: 48 month
  • Mileage: 40,000 km (i.e. 10,000 km per year)
  • Monthly payments: 289 euros
  • Total cost (contribution + monthly payments): 13,872 euros
