The estate might have become a little unfashionable in recent years due to the irresistible rise of SUVs and crossovers, but the days of the good old family load-lugger are on their way back – and it's all thanks to electricity.
While there are numerous electric SUVs on the market (and will continue to be for the foreseeable future), electric propulsion and large body dimensions don't go hand in hand. Smooth, aerodynamic shapes are an EV battery's best friend. And estate cars can offer as much – and more in a lot of cases – space than an SUV, but in a slippery, wind-cheating shape that'll do wonders for your electric range.
We'll admit from the outset the choice of pure electric estate cars is currently very limited (it's actually two, okay?), but the sector is set to grow considerably over the next few years. Read on to find out which electric estate cars you can purchase right now or in the near future.
