The Audi Q4 e-tron is temptingly priced for a premium-badged electric SUV, plus it’s a very comfortable, practical and classy choice. If you’re not so worried about the emblem on the nose of your car, we’d urge you to look at the Skoda Enyaq as well, because it’s similar in a lot of respects. However, the Q4 does feel like the more expensive car it is, particularly in terms of infotainment and interior finish.

Even this entry-level trim is decently equipped, getting 19in alloy wheels, powerful LED headlights, three-zone climate control, a Type 2 charging cable and a 10.1in touchscreen infotainment system incorporating a DAB radio, built-in navigation and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone mirroring. Meanwhile, standard safety kit includes automatic emergency braking and lane-keeping assistance.
The engineSee full engine specs
Like the entry-level 35 model, the 40 has a single motor and is rear-wheel drive, but it produces an extra 33bhp (taking the total up to 201bhp) and can get from 0-62mph in 8.5sec. While that's nothing special by electric car standards, the 40 still feels pretty responsive when you put your foot down. Just bear in mind that the rival Ford Mustang Mach-E is quite a bit nippier again, while the pricier Volvo XC40 P8 Recharge will leave it for dead.
