Buying my mom an electric car... But which will she choose?

Mat's mum is BACK! But she's not drag racing today, she's being treated - Mat's going to buy her a new car!

It's time to say bye-bye to her SEAT Leon - she's making the move to electric! Now, of course, we're not short of choice when it comes to electric cars these days, so Mat's brought together six of the best so they can get up close & personal with them to find out which is best for his mum.

They'll start off looking at three cheap options - the Peugeot e-2008, the Volkswagen ID.3, and the Vauxhall/Opel Mokka-e. Once they're done with those, they'll take a look at more expensive options - we've got the all-new Audi Q4 e-tron, the Volvo XC40 Electric, and the Tesla Model 3 Standard-range Plus.

Mat and his mum are going to take a close look at each car to determine which one she likes the most. Checking out their interiors, back seats, and boot through to how they drive, this is the ultimate review video for someone looking to pick up an all-new EV!

But which will she choose - will she prefer the striking looks of the e-2008? Or maybe she'll want Mat to splash out on the most expensive car here, the Audi? You'll have to keep watching to find out!

      @carwow This was so helpful! As a woman of probably not dissimilar vintage as Sally it was very interesting to hear your mums point of view, love the fact that she enjoys a bit of speed too! One thing both I and my wife would be interested in seeing is how your mum gets on with public chargers, ideally the large CCS type, shame she picked the Tesla 😂. They look extremely heavy and although we were once strong birds, now not so much and we're quite concerned, as we don't have a drive, how difficult they're going to be for us to use. Thanks again, lovely video. ☺️

      Great interview/review. You worked with your mother amazingly well AND we got a review through your mother’s eyes, bad knees and all. I wonder how my mother would handle all of this new tech. Your mother was awesome. Kudos.

    I honestly wouldn't buy Electric Cars right now. Range is very little, and reliability isn't very good, since many car makers are still new to Electric cars. I'd honestly wait for 5-10 years if I were to buy one. They are just not good right now

    Loved it. I'm sending it to my septuagenarian father right now. Slightly harsh as he can never afford a Tesla but it's nice to dream/regret the financial choices you and your family have made or been forced to make in life. On the up side he may be up for a second hand 2013 Zoe in the near future though.
