Which do you reckon is quickest in a drag race, petrol, diesel or electric power? You won’t need to wonder for long because today we’re going to find out.

Mat will be piloting the Tesla Model Y for this race. It has dual electric motors with 434hp and 494Nm of torque. It also has all-wheel-drive and weighs in at 1,979kg. No gearbox to worry about here, which should bode well for the launch.

Representing the petrol engine, we have the Porsche Macan GTS. It has a 2.9-litre twin-turbocharged V6 with 440hp and 550Nm of torque. This goes to all four wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox, and it tips the scales at 1,960kg.

Finally, we have the BMW X3 M40d. It has a 3.0-litre twin-turbocharged diesel engine with 340hp and 700Nm of torque, linked to an eight-speed automatic gearbox. Like the other two cars it has all-wheel-drive, however it is the heaviest here at 2,005kg.
