All the electric cars you can buy in South Africa

Following the South African launch of the Audi e-tron range, local buyers now have over 20 electric cars to choose from.

Audi’s e-tron launch follows BMW introducing its iX range to South Africa in late in 2021 – which quickly sold out – and Volvo selling its first 15 units of the XC40 P8 Recharge in the country in mid-2021.

While the number of all-electric options has improved significantly in recent months, and there appears to be high demand for the vehicles, the pricing of these models still puts them well out of reach for most South African.

Except for the CityBug: a R230,000 electric car aimed at the entry-level market.

It cannot hold an LED to the BMW, Audi, and Volvo models, and is aware of this, but it is nonetheless a refreshing entry to the segment.

A bit further up the ranks is the Mini Cooper SE, which is the most affordable full-size electric car you can buy in South Africa – at just over R700,000.
