The “Top Picks for 2020” are in from Consumer Reports and Porsche fans aren’t going to be happy about the only all-electric vehicle in the top 10.

Tesla’s “affordable” all-electric sedan, the Model 3, was named as one of the top 10 cars to buy and was the only electric vehicle in the annual listing. The Toyota Prius also made the list as a top car, but as a hybrid. Unfortunately for Porsche, its first all-electric car, the Taycan, which came out last year, didn’t make the cut.

Consumer Reports said the Model 3 made it to the top because “the car’s impressive handling and quick, precise steering help it feel like a sports car. The Model 3 has excellent visibility and a stark interior dominated by a 15-inch touchscreen that governs many controls.” It’s not quite a direct dig at Porsche, but it’s worth noting the Taycan is very much a sports car.

Tesla was also named the “best American brand overall” with its other electric options, the luxury sedan Model S and SUV Model X.

It’s not all bad news for Porsche loyalists, though. The German automaker earned the best overall on Consumer Report’s brand report card.

Here’s the full Top 10 list:

  • Toyota Corolla
  • Subaru Forester 
  • Subaru Legacy 
  • Toyota Prius/Prius Prime 
  • Kia Telluride
  • Honda Ridgeline 
  • Toyota Avalon 
  • Tesla Model 3
  • Lexus RX
  • Toyota Supra
