Overall verdict

The Top Gear car review: Audi e-tron

£59,845£73,400

Verdict

Final thoughts and pick of the range

A very conventional Audi, built to persuade regular SUV buyers to make the EV jump.

The family SUV, made electric. The Audi e-tron may be unimaginative, it may not stand out from the crowd, but that’s the point. This is a key part of the electric car tipping point, aimed at drawing in those who want an electric car, but don’t want it to weird them out. This applies to the vast majority of buyers out there, and the e-tron, although £15,000 more than an equivalent diesel SUV, is likely to find many eager homes.

It’s an easily understood, very well executed and reassuringly well built and developed car. An Audi, in other words. It would be good if it was lighter and went further between charges and we’re yet to be convinced about the benefits of the camera side mirrors, but if you’re looking to set a tentative foot into the future, this is the safest stepping stone yet.
