The iX1 is a practical choice and its performance is impressive. However, it's let down by a high price, a firm ride and so-so range between charges. Put simply, there are better electric SUVs available for the money.

M Sport trim gets you all the equipment that comes on xLine, but adds 19in alloys as well as the Technology Pack, which bring wireless phone-charging and high-beam assist for the headlights. You also get sportier styling.

This is currently the only version of the iX1. The ‘xDrive’ bit means four-wheel drive, and there are two electric motors – one driving the front wheels and one the rears. Together they pump out a whopping 309bhp, meaning 0-62mph can be dispatched in just 5.6 seconds.
