If you're looking for a brilliant electric car that offers real driving pleasure, the Porsche Taycan is the one for you. All versions are quick, have amazing handling, and are wonderfully classy and reasonably practical inside. The Taycan is also available with one of the longest official ranges you can get – but on the down side, none of that comes cheap.

The entry-level car comes with 19in alloy wheels, a heat pump, keyless start (but not keyless entry), front and rear parking sensors, cruise control and adaptive air suspension. Meanwhile, inside you get two-zone climate control, heated, eight-way electrically adjustable front seats, three touchscreens, sat-nav, wireless phone-charging, four USB-C ports and a 10-speaker stereo.

The entry-level, rear-wheel-drive Taycan has up to 402bhp and can accelerate from 0-62mph in 4.8 seconds if you use launch control. Its official range is 367 miles from an 89kWh battery, while the optional 105kWh Performance Battery Plus ups that to 421 miles.
