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. It’s also available with one of the longest official ranges you can get – but on the down side, none of that comes cheap.

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 4S with up to 563bhp, thanks to the addition of the optional 93kWh Performance Battery Plus package. That delivers even more eye-watering performance (we tested it getting from 0-60mph in 3.6sec) along with a longer WLTP battery range of 318 miles (about 250 miles in the real world). It will also charge faster than the standard 4S, at up to 270kW, which delivers a 10-80% charge in 20mins.
