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!

    in 9 years time when the uk bans the sale of new petrol and diesel cars i will be 76 years old, and assuming i am still driving i will not be buying electric. my present car (12 reg) will probably be gone and i'll buy a second hand petrol. The number of miles i am doing now is around 3000 per annum. by the time of 2030 it will probably be less. so even if the price of fuel is high it won't bother me. so the government's push to electric will have no effect on me whatsoever. electric? you can keep them. i'm not interested. and what is the govt. going to do about the billions of £££'s they will lose in road tax revenue? you'll all be paying through the nose for using the roads. good luck to you. i don't care. stuff you boris johnson and extinction rebellion and all the idiots who block roads and think that is going to get you support, it won't!!!

    One of your best videos yet. Your mom is lovely and such a good sport. I would have loved to have seen her reaction trying the Model Y. Though a bit more expensive than the three I think that would have been even more of a no-brainer. Thanks so much for the wonderful content and such a precious video with your mom.

    According to a report by Friends of the Earth, lithium extraction inevitably harms the soil and causes air contamination. In Argentina’s Salar de Hombre Muerto, locals claim that lithium operations have contaminated streams used by humans and livestock, and for crop irrigation. In Chile, there have been clashes between mining companies and local communities, who say that lithium mining is leaving the landscape marred by mountains of discarded salt and canals filled with contaminated water with an unnatural blue hue.
    “Like any mining process, it is invasive, it scars the landscape, it destroys the water table and it pollutes the earth and the local wells,” said Guillermo Gonzalez, a lithium battery expert from the University of Chile, in a 2009 interview. “This isn’t a green solution – it’s not a solution at all.”

    Absolutely the right choice. Nothing comes close to Tesla in terms of drive, performance and practicality- the Tesla network of super chargers really does negate any sort of range anxiety. The only question is how the 2nd hand value stands up over time
