What is the best electric car to replace my Audi A1?

Which electric car would advise to replace our Audi A1 Sportback 1.0 petrol? We do lots of short journeys and cover 5000 miles a year.

We'd recommend a Peugeot e-208. It's a great little electric car with stylish looks and a premium cabin. Also look at the Renault Zoe or, if you'd prefer something a bit bigger, the Volkswagen ID.3.

I'm considering buying an electric car. I've spotted that the latest Renault Zoe has a ground clearance of 120mm. This seems relatively low; I'd be concerned how well the car could cope with the speed...
In the main, I only drive twice a day for 1.3 miles each way. Should I keep the Lexus IS 2.5 V6 petrol or swap to a small petrol car, or even a hybrid like the Toyota Yaris?
