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.
Most people find driving an electric car becomes quite addictive. Once you've tried it, you just can't stop.
