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 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.
