Are there any good small electric cars on the market?

Is it worth waiting a few years before buying an electric car? I would be looking at something the size of an Aygo with four doors.

It depends on your requirements and whether you can charge at home. If you can charge at home and only cover short journeys, an electric car would probably fit into your lifestyle now. A Renault Zoe would be a good choice. If you want to travel further or will be reliant on public charging, it might be best to wait until the infrastructure improves.
