The 64kWh version of the Hyundai Kona Electric has a fantastic real-world range between charges, plus it’s quick and well-equipped. However, excellent rivals including the Kia e-Niro and Volkswagen ID.3 are better all-rounders thanks to their superior ride comfort and more practical interiors.

The Kona N’s 2.0-litre T-GDi turbocharged petrol engine creates 276bhp and plenty of shove. Hyundai says that takes it from 0-62mph in just 5.5seconds and it certainly feels like it. It’s not quite as responsive as the Puma ST’s engine low down, with a moment of lag (while the turbocharger starts to spin up) when you put your foot down, but feels faster when it comes alive. By 3,000rpm it is really pushing you into your seat.
