“Many people will love the way the e-tron looks, it’s first and foremost a luxurious Audi SUV, but others will wish it makes more of a statement. Personally I fall into the later camp, although I’m impressed by how refined and comfortable it is to drive.”

“Another one of those big-manufacturer EV SUVs that tries very hard not to offend. Not as sporty as a Jag iPace, the e-Tron is for Audi SUV owners who don’t want to be intellectually challenged. It’s a good car - just not a revolutionary electric SUV.”

If the price of a new e-tron makes you baulk, take a look at a used version. Dealers are selling ex-demonstrators with tiny mileages at five-figure discounts over the list price.

Used Audi e-tron

If you are not too worried about being the first name on your e-tron’s registration document then you can save a huge chunk of money by hunting down an ex-demonstrator car from a dealer. At the time of writing there were over 300 advertised and prices started at £40,950 – the same as a mid-spec VW ID.3. There were pre-registered cars with delivery miles with five-figure discounts on the new price - although these were the less desirable 50 models with the small battery.

Of course, buying used will only make sense if you can find one in a specification you like. If the exact car you would choose isn’t available, don’t be prepared to pay extra for options you don’t want or need. 

Also do your sums carefully, as used cars often aren’t available with the same finance offers and packages as new cars. Unless you are paying cash or sorting your own funding, it can sometimes be more cost-effective to take the better interest rate or purchase scheme on a brand new car. Ask the salesman to talk you through the options.
