Audi e-tron

(2019 - present)

The Audi e-tron is a large electric SUV/crossover vehicle, which went on sale in the UK in early 2019. It is Audi’s first production electric car, and will spearhead a new range of electric cars from the brand over the next decade.

The e-tron has received positive reviews from the UK automotive media, with scores ranging from good to outstanding. The lowest scores have tended to be from performance-oriented titles like Top Gear and Evo, while the highest scores have come from consumer titles like Honest John and Auto Express.

The Audi e-tron has received particular praise for its smooth and quiet drivetrain, practicality and overall refinement. The main criticisms levelled at it are basically that it’s not as exciting to drive as a Jaguar I-Pace and the optional rear-view wing cameras are a bit gimmicky.
