At UK Car Finance, we love a good Tesla! Whilst they can be expensive to purchase, they are highly impressive. Not only is the Tesla Model X one of the few electric cars that can tow but they are also one of the best cars for commuting and features in our list of the top 10 safest cars – what’s not to love?! If you’re serious about getting a Tesla, you could use electric car finance to help spread the cost and reap the benefits of driving a Tesla! Its hugely powerful electric motor makes towing a caravan a doddle and its onboard technology makes life that little bit easier. When you attach a trailer or caravan, the Tesla Model X automatically disables features such as rear parking sensors and automatic steering assist. You can also use its towing system to stop your trailer from swaying side to side. 

Volvo V60

Towing capacity up to 2,000kg

The Volvo V60 is a great example of a hybrid car with impressive towing capacity. It’s one of our best cars for towing caravans due to its low running costs and its packed full of equipment. The Volvo V60 Estate can make a great family car on its own but then add on an electric battery that can travel around 54 miles and range anxiety will be little to worry about. The boot space isn’t affected by the additional battery either so you can still benefit from enough room for all the family. The Volvo V60 Hybrid has a real premium feel which can ve reflected in the price tag, with the newest model starting from around £40k. 

Skoda Enyaq iV SUV

Towing capacity: 1,000kg

Skoda Enyaq

Another one of our favourite electric cars for towing is the Skoda Enyaq iV SUV! It’s also one of the newest cars on our list and was only released in the UK in Feb 2022 so you may not have only seen a few on the road so far this year. Whilst its towing capacity is lower than some of the rivals on our list, it can boast an impressive 336 miles on a single charge! The Skoda Enyaq starts from around £32,000 which can fit into many electric car enthusiasts’ budgets. It’s a large SUV that offers heaps of clever features and room for the full family. When it comes to getting the best cars for towing, the Enyaq should not be overlooked.
