Every person who's heard about the latest in electric powerplants always asks the same question: can you live with an electric car every day? We find out.

YouTuber, Petrol Ped, receives an Audi e-Tron to test for a week. The perfect excuse to see if it is practical to own an electric vehicle (EV) as your only mode of transport.

As it turns out, there's way more to EV ownership than meets the eye. You've undoubtedly heard the term 'range anxiety', and it turns out it's a real thing. If you don't plan ahead, you'll find yourself in trouble as the infrastructure in most countries is still lacking.

Ultimately, this review is what most owners will find as teething problems until they learn to plan ahead, even then, it's still stressful as there is no way to 'splash-and-dash' at a fuel station. Which is a pity, as the Audi is, well, an Audi, and the rest of the car is brilliant.

Hit play and see how a regular work week goes in the real world of EV ownership.
