Take your Time
You need at least a couple of hours to get a feel for an electric car.
Better still, ask to have it for the whole day or for the weekend. Drive it in as many different environments as possible. For example, on the motorway at 70 mph, around town in slow traffic, on windy roads, etc.
Also, try out any special technology the car might have, such as regenerative breaking, self-driving capabilities, one pedal driving, and so on.
Newer electric cars, such as the Tesla Model 3, are so advanced that you need plenty of time to evaluate them. For example, the Model 3 has a 15-inch touchscreen which controls practically every aspect of the car.
It represents a totally new way of interacting with your vehicle and you need time to work out whether it is right for you.
Most people find driving an electric car becomes addictive. Once you've tried it, you just can't stop.
