How I'd love to experience a day in the life of a designer working on an electric car.

Their days must be filled with clips of the movie Tron, listening to Com Truise (who makes futuristic electronic music) and playing with lightsabers. At least that's how I imagine it is, having now seen the Audi e-tron Sportback.

When seen in the metal, the concept looks like it's been zapped into the present day from the year 2117. You can almost see the mists of time disappearing around it as it settles in 2017.

The e-tron and also the recently revealed Jaguar I-Pace (pictured below) are good examples of the aesthetic advantages of going electric. Neither is weighed down with a big lump of metal up front, so both sport unfamiliar designs from the front to back.
