Sunny Spain may be off the holiday destination list, but that didn’t stop me having fun in the new Mii Electric, from the country’s car maker SEAT.
What a perky and surprisingly spacious little runaround from the Spanish arm of the Volkswagen group.
It’s has a lot going for it: zippy; instant response; space for five; and an expandable boot.
Powered by a 61kWh electric motor, rest to 62mph takes 12.3 seconds up to a top speed of 81mph. It has a 160-mile range.
Priced from £19,800 (after deducting the £3,000 plug-in grant). It’s also just been named best value car in the inaugural What Car? electric vehicle awards.
Fancy a classic Bugatti for the price of a family hatchback or saloon?
In conjunction with Bugatti, the Little Car Company, based at Bicester Heritage, is producing 500 1926 Bugatti Type 35s at a 75 per cent scale version, pictured.
This echoes the Bugatti founder who built a 50 per cent scale ‘Baby’ for his son and sold more to customers from 1927 to 1936.
Three versions of the electric Bugatti ‘Baby II’ cost between £27,000 and £53,000 plus VAT. The top speed is 42mph. bugattibaby.com.
