The Kia EV6 is an excellent electric car with a long range and the ability to charge up very quickly. It’s also huge in the back and good to drive. Just bear in mind that cheaper rear-wheel drive versions make more financial sense than the faster four-wheel drive models.

Top-of-the-range GT-Line S cars get larger 20in alloy wheels, an upgraded sound system with 14 speakers, a 360-degree parking camera, blind-spot monitoring, an augmented reality head-up display, ventilated front seats, heated outer rear seats and exterior door handles that pop out for you as you go to grab them. It’s too pricey for us to recommend, though.

Cheaper RWD models have a single 226bhp electric motor driving the rear wheels, giving performance that’s decent rather than (ahem) electric. In our tests this version managed 0-60mph in 6.9 seconds. The official range is up to 328 miles on a full charge, but 260-280 miles in real world driving is more realistic.
