Porsche got some clever PR at Copenhagen's Climate Change Conference this week when bonkers Bavarian tuner Ruf unveiled an electric Cayenne, the world's first SUEV.

The Cayenne may be your most annoying 4x4, but with such impeccable zero-emission credentials, maybe even the eco-warriors will have to think again.

Dubbed the eRuf Stormster, it's powered by a stonking 367bhp electric motor and lithium-ion batteries.
