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 45 produces a healthy 282bhp and can be had in either rear-wheel drive or four-wheel drive Quattro form. A 0-62mph time of 6.7 seconds for the rear-wheel drive car (6.6 for the Quattro) makes it quicker off the line than entry-level versions of the Hyundai Ioniq 5 and the Kia EV6. We don’t see the need to step up to the more powerful 55 version.
