The Audi E-Tron costs from a whisker under £60,000 in the UK and there are two models to choose from: the E-Tron SUV and the new Sportback bodystyle, which in keeping with other Audis, means a rather more sporting silhouette. Yes, you pay more for a sportier, less practical E-Tron! Get past the price and you'll find a really competitive electric SUV, which drives really nicely and has lashings of clever interior tricks with an interior to knock out the competition. This EV has a chunky 95kWh battery, which brings a decently long range - Audi quotes a range of 'up to 240 miles on a single charge.' One of the most intriguing highlights of the E-Tron range is the availability (they're not standard) of camera-based rear-view mirrors; tiny lenses poke out on the car's flanks and the picture is beamed on to flat screens nestled in the front doors. Looks a bit weird at first, but you soon adapt. We dread to think what they'll cost to replace should they suffer a knock in city driving though...

The one we'd buy

The regular Audi E-Tron 55 Quattro SUV

The one we'd avoid like the plague

Both are great, but we'd prefer the practicality of the SUV to the pricier Sportback

Rivals to consider

Jaguar i-Pace, Mercedes-Benz EQC

For

Classy, drives well, beautifully built, we dig those twin charging ports on either side...

Against

Expensive, is the infrastructure there yet?
