AUDI E-TRON SPORTBACK Audi is planning to supercharge the electric vehicle side of its business in the next couple of years. The car you see before you – the Audi e-tron Sportback – is a working concept revealed at this year’s Shanghai Motor Show, and promises big things for the marque; think Model S-beater and you’re on the right track. This sporty, all-electric four-door will be launched in 2019, and the big deal here is the engine. Well, the motor. Well, the three motors. Yes, the Sportback will feature one at the front and two at the rear, and with a total power output of 496BHP and 590ft lb of torque, you’d think Tesla would be worried, but performance figures of 0-62mph in 4.5 seconds and a top speed of 131mph are…

We pick out the best tech at an entry-level price, then a higher price that mixes top tech quality with solid value, and then our high-end, no-limits choice. We want to make sure you can find something great and new, whatever your budget. But the key thing is that we still haven’t compromised on quality – we’re not suggesting things just because they’re cheap, but because they balance price and features really well. Of course, take a step up if you can and you’ll get something even better… Also this issue I took at look at great tech for travelling (p83), whether that’s for business or just…
