It may be a very slightly softer version of the Porsche Taycan, but be in no doubt that the Audi e-tron GT is an awesome-handling electric car. It’s also fast, comfortable and practical enough to pretty much meet your every whim. The Tesla Model S is quicker and roomier for families, and we favour (by a whisker) the Taycan's extra agility.

Equipment levels are high, so we don’t see any need to go beyond this entry-level e-tron GT. LED headlights, eight-way electric front seats and a 10.1in infotainment screen with Apple CarPlay/ Android Auto come as standard. You’ll also enjoy other luxuries, including 20in alloy wheels, power-folding door mirrors, keyless entry, a powered boot lid with gesture control, privacy glass, a panoramic sunroof, 40/20/40 split-folding rear seats, adaptive dampers, heated front seats and three-zone climate control. In the RS model the offering is improved to include 21in alloys, 18-way electric front seats with massaging, matrix LED headlights, adaptive air suspension and a Bang & Olufsen sound system.

Whether you go for the e-tron GT or the RS e-tron GT you get the same 93kWh battery. The power tey offer differs, though, but even the ‘normal’ e-tron GT is extremely fast, covering 0-62mph in 4.1sec (we tested it hitting 0-60mph in 3.9sec). The RS model will do the same sprint in an absurdly rapid 3.3sec, which is there or thereabouts with the 2.8sec Porsche Taycan Turbo S and the Tesla Model S Long Range. The e-tron GT will officially do 295 miles from a full charge (and the RS 280 miles), which is similar to what the Taycan offers but some way off the claimed 412 miles of the Model S Long Range. In our testing we found a real-world range of 230 miles is achievable.
