What's the best small, electric 4x4?
"I'm planning to use our 2008 Mini Cooper Clubman for a deposit on an electric 4x4, some kind of lease deal. The question is, what 4x4 do we need? We share our time between London and rural Suffolk, and the lanes have been particularly muddy and icy of late. It would also need to transport two cocker spaniels and have enough room in the back for baby seats as we have grandchildren (dogs and children not necessarily at the same time as we have access to other cars). So, as small as possible, decent off-road ability and ground clearance, funky, and able to travel between London and Suffolk easily in terms of range. Thanks."
The Jaguar I-Pace might do the job. It has an official range of up to 292 miles and is a fairly practical choice, but it's not cheap. Also consider the Audi e-tron or Mercedes EQC. Alternatively, if you're happy to compromise on the 4x4 requirement, consider the Peugeot e-2008 or Kia e-Niro. Both are very versatile small electric crossovers.

Do you think electric cars come down in price as manufacturing improves?
"Our Volkswagen Golf is coming to the end of its life so we want to buy an electric car. Would it be best to order one now or wait a while? Do you think the Government will give more generous grants to encourage people to buy them or do you think they'll come down in price as manufacturing improves? Also, what Golf sized car would you recommend? Many thanks."
The Plug-in Car Grant has been reduced a number of times in recent years – it originally started at £5000 and is now down to £3000. It's difficult to know for sure but, as EVs become more widespread, I'd expect to see this cut further. Now's a good time to buy one – there are loads currently hitting the market. A Volkswagen ID.3 would be the obvious choice – it's similar in size to the Golf has a very useable electric range. You could also consider electric crossover SUVs like the Vauxhall Mokka-E or Peugeot e-2008.

Why is there such a long wait for new electric cars?
"Just tried to buy a Peugeot e-2008 from my local dealer, it had done 250 miles and was their demonstrator. However, Peugeot has said they can’t sell me that particular car. There is a six to seven-month wait for a similar vehicle. Can you recommend a similar vehicle in the same price range?"
There's a lot of demand for electric vehicles at the moment so it's not surprising to hear of a long waiting list for the Peugeot e-2008. Also consider the Kia e-Niro, Hyundai Kona Electric or maybe the MG ZS Electric.
