      Fastest car is a tricky one!

      Highest top speed is definitely a Jaguar E-Pace, which can go as fast as 147mph – but still nowhere near the fastest car ever.

      Fastest accelerating is an electric pickup truck called the Ford F-150 Lightning, which can accelerate from 0mph to 60mph in about 4 seconds

      Electric cars are generally much much faster accelerating than petrol or diesel cars, because there are a lot fewer parts to get the power to the road

      Favourite car is definitely an electric car with solar panels on the sides & roof, because in theory during summer you might never need to charge, so it could be free transport!
