The 10 best electric 4x4s you can buy in 2024

EVs are known for their efficiency, but you'll still find lots of battery-powered 4x4s with beefy electric motors to pull you out of sticky situations.

Whether you're tackling all weathers or hauling a trailer, an electric car with four-wheel drive is a practical, flexible option that can help reduce your environmental impact.

Here are 10 of the best electric 4x4s you can buy.

Kia EV9

Kia EV9 in grey
  • Range – up to 349 miles
  • Towing capacity – up to 2,500kg

The Kia EV9 is a big car with an even bigger list of talents – it's powerful, well-built and absolutely enormous inside. It's upright and boxy like a traditional off-roader, but the styling details help it look bang up to date. The cabin sells itself with a modern dual-screen infotainment setup and plush materials, but the most impressive feature is simply the sheer amount of space available. Tall adults can fit in all three rows, leaving a boot that's still larger than most family hatchbacks – or you can fold the seats to turn the EV9 into an electric van.

Mercedes EQB

Mercedes EQB in blue
  • Range – up to 321 miles
  • Towing capacity – up to 1,700kg

The Mercedes EQB might be one letter below the posh EQC, but its practical, boxy body shape means it squeezes seven seats into its comparatively compact frame. Front-wheel-drive 250+ models achieve the best range figures, but trading up to the four-wheel-drive 350 version brings a substantial increase in performance and more towing capacity. Inside, plush materials, ambient lighting and high-tech infotainment displays remind you why this battery-powered Mercedes costs a little more than most rivals.

Tesla Model Y

Tesla Model Y in black
  • Range – up to 331 miles
  • Towing capacity – up to 1,600kg

With an aerodynamic body and rounded styling, the Tesla Model Y doesn't look like a traditional 4x4. However, the Dual Motor version's standard four-wheel drive means this sensible family SUV can tackle almost all weathers – especially if you also equip grippy winter tyres. All the regular Tesla benefits remain, too, including the clean, minimal interior, the glitzy infotainment screen and the zippy electric driving experience. Plus, there's loads of space in the cabin, with an even larger cargo area than the Model 3 and a handy hatchback bootlid.

Ford Mustang Mach-E

Ford Mustang Mach-E in red
  • Range – up to 372 miles
  • Towing capacity – up to 1,500kg

Some might scoff at an electric SUV that wears a Mustang badge, but the Ford Mustang Mach-E is every inch a performance car. It might lack the sonic impact of its V8-engined sibling but it's even more ferocious in a straight line thanks to four-wheel-drive grip from its dual-motor setup. It also handles far better than you might expect from a practical SUV, with superb body control and weighty, direct steering. Plus, the tall ride height and quartet of driven wheels means the Mach-E can keep going long after the regular Mustang has found the nearest ditch.

Skoda Enyaq

Skoda Enyaq in blue
  • Range – up to 348 miles
  • Towing capacity – up to 1,400kg

Some VW-Group cars based on the latest MEB electric platform have been a bit lacklustre, but the Skoda Enyaq demonstrates the setup's true potential. By eliminating the petrol engine and gearbox, all an EV's mechanical parts can be pushed to the edges, which Skoda has done to give the Enyaq a vast interior. There's space for adults to stretch out in every seat, and a wide, tall load area that's easily accessed via the sizeable boot lid. It won't exactly thrill on the road, but the Enyaq is tuned to be soft and comforting over long journeys.

Hyundai Ioniq 5

Hyundai Ioniq 5 in blue/grey
  • Range – up to 315 miles
  • Towing capacity – up to 1,600kg

You might look at the Hyundai Ioniq 5 and wonder whether it's actually a 4x4. It might lack the bluff, boxy looks of an old-school off-roader, but the Ioniq 5 has more ground clearance than a regular hatchback and dimensions that put it in line with most mid-size family SUVs. Plus, you have the option of a strong dual-motor setup that gives the car four-wheel drive and excellent acceleration. Like other clever EVs on this list, the cabin is Tardis-like, with space in the rear for tall adults and a big boot that'll comfortably swallow holiday luggage.

Volvo XC40 Recharge

Volvo XC40 Recharge in silver
  • Range – up to 333 miles
  • Towing capacity – up to 1,800kg

The petrol-powered Volvo XC40 is already a compelling small family SUV, but adding a powerful electric powertrain simply extends its list of talents further. Selecting the dual-motor version means standard four-wheel drive and, with more than 400hp on tap, electrifying (sorry!) performance when you floor it. Compared to other small SUVs, you sit quite high up in the XC40, giving a confidence-inspiring view of the road ahead, and there's enough room in the back for adults or child seats to fit without too much complaint.

Audi Q8 e-tron

Audi Q8 e-tron in grey
  • Range – up to 330 miles
  • Towing capacity – up to 1,800kg

Before a substantial update, the Audi Q8 e-tron was simply known as the 'e-tron' and was the brand's first attempt at a battery-powered SUV. The facelift was much needed because the electric car market has evolved rapidly and the old e-tron was struggling to keep pace with newer rivals. Now updated, the car boasts substantially more range than before, along with a powerful dual-motor, four-wheel-drive setup and enough mass to haul a 1,800kg braked trailer.

BMW iX in grey
  • Range – up to 382 miles
  • Towing capacity – up to 2,500kg

The BMW iX is an expensive luxury SUV, so it might not be an obvious replacement if you need a properly agricultural off-roader. Nevertheless, it has a mighty dual-motor setup with enough performance to embarrass some serious sports cars. Some recent BMWs could be accused of being overly conservative in their cabin design but the iX really stands out with elegant metal styling touches and crystal-effect detailing. The huge battery slung underneath the car gives it a long driving range and enough mass to pull up to 2,500kg.

Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo

Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo in red
  • Range – up to 304 miles
  • Towing capacity – n/a

Okay, strictly speaking, this isn't really a 4x4, or even an SUV for that matter. However, the Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo's grippy four-wheel drive, chunky plastic cladding and slightly raised ride height gives this electric super-estate some of the look and ability of a genuine off-roader. Those skills don't come at the expense of the driving experience, however, with the Taycan Cross Turismo still displaying the kind of telepathic steering and prodigious performance you'd expect from a car bearing the Porsche crest.
