Review

For VIP transportation at large events, a lot of companies will rightly think the EQV makes a lot of sense. For private buyers, however, the Tesla Model X costs more but is a far superior choice as a seven-seat EV, while there are plenty of excellent five-seat SUVs that cost significantly less.

The only real benefit of going for this range-topping trim is to get adaptive suspension and upgraded stereo system. The jump up from Sport Premium is too steep to recommend.

The only choice if you want to buy the EQV. With a 201bhp electric motor driving the front wheels, it delivers a 0-62mph sprint in 12.1sec. It's one of the slowest electric cars around but doesn't feel too sluggish on the open road, partly thanks to the electric motor's immediate response to your accelerator inputs. The EQV will stretch its legs to a top speed of 98mph if you find a long enough stretch of Autobahn. The range of 213 miles is mediocre compared to most large electric cars.
