Audi made history in 2019 when they delivered the first-ever e-tron, a fully electric car that was initially showcased to the world as a concept car at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show. This innovative vehicle marked an important milestone for Audi and set a new bar for future electric cars to come.
The front of the e-tron was marked by its iconic singleframe grille painted in titanium-gray, a signature color for Audi's electric models. To provide an additional level of convenience and safety, two slim side arms were placed on either side to act as rear view cameras instead of traditional mirrors. The vehicle also featured a complete LED lighting system for headlights and taillights.
The e-tron interior provides seating for up to five passengers and features all digital displays, including the instrument cluster, infotainment system and two smaller screens on the doors that act as rear view cameras. Additionally, Valcona leather seats with natural wood inserts in the cabin come together to create a luxurious atmosphere.
The e-tron was fitted with two electric motors, one on each axle. Its 95kWh and 700 kg battery pack rested in the floor between both axles. Read more
Audi has invested billions into battery powered vehicles, and the e-tron Sportback is Ingolstadt's second electric SUV. It serves as a "four-door coupe" version of its traditional e-tron model which was already based on the coupe look of the Q8 - taking that concept to new heights. With this launch, Audi expands their ever growing e-tron product line.
The Audi e-tron Sportback stands out from its competitors, such as the Mercedes-Benz EQC and BMW iX3. Not only does it have a sleek exterior design, but there are also some performance advantages that come with its more aerodynamic shape. However, most of the technical aspects between both e-trons remain similar yet you will still get an energy edge with the Sportback. Thanks to the coupe-like body shape, this Sportback is nearly as aerodynamic as a sedan with its 0.25 drag coefficient. This improved air flow allows for an impressive range of 446 kilometers (277.1 miles) in the WLTP cycle from the same 95 kWh Lithium-ion battery pack - that's 10 km (6.2 miles) more than your standard e-tron. Step into luxury and green living today with one of these stylish electric SUVs; you won't regret it.
