Buying my mom an electric car... But which will she choose?
Check out our electric car homepage for all the latest EV reviews & deals -

Mat's mum is BACK! But she's not drag racing today, she's being treated - Mat's going to buy her a new car!

It's time to say bye-bye to her SEAT Leon - she's making the move to electric! Now, of course, we're not short of choice when it comes to electric cars these days, so Mat's brought together six of the best so they can get up close & personal with them to find out which is best for his mum.

They'll start off looking at three cheap options - the Peugeot e-2008, the Volkswagen ID.3, and the Vauxhall/Opel Mokka-e. Once they're done with those, they'll take a look at more expensive options - we've got the all-new Audi Q4 e-tron, the Volvo XC40 Electric, and the Tesla Model 3 Standard-range Plus.

Mat and his mum are going to take a close look at each car to determine which one she likes the most. Checking out their interiors, back seats, and boot through to how they drive, this is the ultimate review video for someone looking to pick up an all-new EV!

But which will she choose - will she prefer the striking looks of the e-2008? Or maybe she'll want Mat to splash out on the most expensive car here, the Audi? You'll have to keep watching to find out!

      @Aldo Zilli no, that's how they say it in Brummie land!

      @carwow This was so helpful! As a woman of probably not dissimilar vintage as Sally it was very interesting to hear your mums point of view, love the fact that she enjoys a bit of speed too! One thing both I and my wife would be interested in seeing is how your mum gets on with public chargers, ideally the large CCS type, shame she picked the Tesla 😂. They look extremely heavy and although we were once strong birds, now not so much and we're quite concerned, as we don't have a drive, how difficult they're going to be for us to use. Thanks again, lovely video. ☺️

      @Thomas Pickard because he's a Brummie and that's how they say it.... Guess they had to get it from somewhere over here 😂

      Great interview/review. You worked with your mother amazingly well AND we got a review through your mother’s eyes, bad knees and all. I wonder how my mother would handle all of this new tech. Your mother was awesome. Kudos.

    Loved it. I'm sending it to my septuagenarian father right now. Slightly harsh as he can never afford a Tesla but it's nice to dream/regret the financial choices you and your family have made or been forced to make in life. On the up side he may be up for a second hand 2013 Zoe in the near future though.

    From the very first second i wished it would be the Tesla! And i'm not a fan of Saint Elon or the Tesla Corp, the car itself is just better in every aspect, so why chose another one? And the video format is also something new and interesting, thanks, enjoyed!

    That was so much fun watching your mumma. She is hilarious, gracious lady and probably the reason Matt amounted to anything in his life at all, is due to her. Can't wait until she does a drag race. This video should break the view count record. I've finished tipi tapy-ing. Byeee🤣😁😆👏

    Why there's no Skoda Enyaq? Much better than the dark, boring and overly expensive Audi... It's funny to watch her reactions. e-2008 and iD.3 felt way better than fossil cars. But everything changed after driving the Tesla... nothing else feels impressive anymore! :D By the way... your mother is so cool, Matt! Wish you both all the best! :)
