Best electric hot hatches of 2024

The British love affair with the hot hatch is the stuff of legend – so it’s no surprise that electric hot hatches are taking over the scene in 2024. It’s a combination that makes sense – hot hatches are great because they combine everyday practicality with exciting performance, wrapped up in a relatively affordable package. Meanwhile, electric cars typically offer lots of oomph off the line anyway.

Carwow’s expert reviews team has put together a list of the most exciting electric hot hatchbacks you can buy in 2024.

Electric hot hatch FAQs

The best electric hot hatch is the Hyundai Ioniq 5 N. It’s quite expensive, but compared with cars that offer similar performance, and which haven’t had the extensive makeover this Ioniq 5 has been given, it’s actually reasonably priced.

The Hyundai Ioniq 5 N is the fastest electric hot hatch. If you press the (ridiculously named) N Grin Boost button you get all 650hp, which gets you from 0-62mph in just 3.4 seconds and on to a top speed of 162mph.
