Will prices of electric cars come down soon?

I would like to change my current car for an electric one, but at the moment they don't have the range I would like. I think this will happen in time, along with more charging points, but do you think the prices will come down? Thanks and regards.

Electric cars are gradually becoming more attainable. The key is to include running costs when doing the sums on monthly payments – a typical EV might be £100-200 a month more than a petrol equivalent on PCP finance, for example, but you could save that in fuel costs. Take a look at MG's electric models (including the MG5 EV and ZS EV). They represent very good value for money.
