2021 has been a FANTASTIC year for electric cars and I have LOVED testing so many EV's, hybrids (HEV) and plug-in hybrids (PHEV) with my family for BabyDrive! So many of the cars I test now have some form of electric and I love experiencing each one to see where they are similar and how they all differ.

These are a real mix of shape, size and price of electric car. Let's find out what I picked as my BabyDrive top 5 electric cars of 2021:

1st Place: Hyundai Ioniq 5 EV

The Hyundai Ioniq 5 is an INCREDIBLE electric car that raises the bar for electric vehicles. It looks fantastic and modern on the outside and the inside is cool, calm and modern too. The Ioniq 5 drive is so quiet and smooth over bumps. The Ioniq 5 has 430km battery range and we found it can add around 50% of charge in 15 minutes at a fast charger making it really practical for family road trip service station stops. Ranging in price between $71,000 and $76,000 it feels worth every dollar and I can see now why they sold out online so quickly! See the top five family-friendly features of the Hyundai Ioniq 5 here.

2nd Place: Porsche Taycan EV

The Porsche Taycan is an INCREDIBLE electric car to experience driving. It is not within many family budgets at around $200,000 however it is very special. With around a 400km range and VERY fast charging it is surprisingly practical for road trips where you can do quick battery top-ups in a similar amount of total time you'd spend at petrol stations. Review coming soon!.

3rd Place: Kia Sorento PHEV (Plug-in Hybrid)

The Kia Sorento PHEV is a great plug-in hybrid seven-seat SUV. It's full of family practicality with five top tether anchorages and heaps of storage, a great media system and super-useful high-quality cameras the PHEV now makes it more economical, affordable and cleaner to run too. See the top five family-friendly features of the Kia Sorento PHEV here.

2021 Kia E-Niro

4th Place: Kia Niro EV

The Kia Niro EV is a really practical electric family SUV. Bigger in size than the electric Hyundai Kona, it fits three child seats across the back and has a great size boot too. See the top five family-friendly features of the Kia Niro EV here.

5th Place: Toyota Kluger Hybrid HEV (Hybrid)

The Toyota Kluger HEV is a non-rechargeable hybrid that charges itself while you drive along using engine braking and the petrol engine. I loved the quiet start to the Kluger and it was a practical and more economical car to drive than its gas-guzzling previous version! See the top five family-friendly features of the Toyota Kluger Hybrid here.
