Review

The Audi E-tron is lavish inside, extremely hushed at high speeds and one of the most comfortable large electric cars you can buy. It's more practical than a lot of direct rivals, too. However, the acceleration and range between charges is quite disappointing for the price.

get the best price

Range-topping Vorsprung trim comes with just about every option box ticked, including enormous 22in alloys, matrix LED headlights, power-closing doors, virtual door mirrors, a 360deg parking camera, a panoramic sunroof, keyless entry, heated front and rear seats, an electric steering column, extended leather trim and ambient lighting, a head-up display, a 16-speaker B&O sound system, blind spot monitoring and adaptive cruise control with steering assist. It's very expensive, though.

It certainly isn't slow; it has 309bhp and can do 0-62mph in 6.8sec. It's just that all of the E-tron's main rivals offer much faster acceleration when you put your foot down and obliterate its 198-mile official battery range.
