If you're looking for a brilliant electric car that offers real driving pleasure, the Porsche Taycan is the one for you. On top of its amazing handling, it's also wonderfully classy inside and reasonably practical, too. On the negative side, the Audi e-tron GT is almost as good to drive but cheaper and better equipped, while the Tesla Model S has a much better official range.

Our favourite trim comes with everything the standard Taycan gets, but adds adaptive air suspension and fancier LED headlights. We recommend adding the 93kWh Performance Battery Plus option to get a longer range and 270kW charging.

This is the entry-level 4S, with up to 523bhp. That's still enough to deliver an eye-watering performance of 0-62mph in just 4.0sec along with a WLTP battery range of 282 miles.
