Review

Despite its more sporty aesthetic, the Audi E-tron Sportback drives in a very similar manner to the regular E-tron SUV, but that’s no bad thing. No, it isn't as sharp as the Jaguar I-Pace in corners, but it is extremely hushed and most versions do a great job of soaking up bumps, while the interior is lavish. As a bonus, it remains usefully practical, too, even with that heavily raked roof. The only real disappointment is the range between charges.

If you want all the options but don’t want to go through the hassle of selecting them individually, then Vorsprung is the trim for you. The standard equipment list reads: 22-inch titanium alloy wheels, orange brake calipers, soft close doors, heated steering wheel, a 19-speaker Bang & Olufsen audio system, and diamond stitched super sport seats. It is, as you’d expect, eye-wateringly expensive.

With more than 300bhp, the entry-level E-tron Sportback motor certainly doesn’t make for slow progress; 0-62mph is done and dusted in 6.8sec. However, the cheaper BMW iX3 is just as fast, while rival models that cost the same sort of money as the Sportback all offer superior acceleration. This model can also travel less than 200 miles on a charge.
