Review: Audi e-tron (2019)


All electric Large SUV. 85kWh battery pack. Front and rear drive motors. Solid, quick and impressive, with an 248 mile range.

Optional camera-based door mirrors are not intuitive and take time to get used to. Still looks like a big SUV.

Can I tow a caravan with an electric car?

Are any electric cars able to tow caravans?
