The second all-electric Audi is upon us in the form of the stunningly styled new Audi e-Tron Sportback. Blending the space, power and presence of an SUV, the e-tron Sportback has the elegance and sleek aerodynamic design of a coupe. It boasts stunning 21 inch alloy wheels, a rear diffuser and a full-width air diffuser to enhance the e-trons already bold looks. Cutting edge technology such as Audi’s camera-based, aerodynamic, drag-reducing virtual mirrors are an option and it also becomes the world’s first car to offer digital matrix LED headlights which take proactive lighting to a new level.
Audi e-Tron Sportback Technology
Inside the luxurious cabin you are met by a huge range of state-of-the-art features including Audi’s 12.3” Virtual Cockpit, MMI Navigation a DAB+ digital radio as well as a Wi-Fi hotspot for mobile devices. The seemingly endless impressive technology rolls right through the car. The e-tron Sportback is equipped with Audi’s all-wheel-drive quattro system that will ensure you have optimum grip and traction regardless of what the British weather throws at you.
Audi e-Tron Sportback Performance
The e-tron blends the balance of a smooth and effortless drive with a fun to drive Sportback with exciting performance. It should come as no surprise that the e-tron produces zero emissions but what might be more shocking is its exhilarating performance. In normal ‘D’ driving mode the e-tron Sportback will produce 265kW of output which translates as an impressive 0-62mph time of just 6.6 seconds. A little shift to the ‘S’ mode and you are introduced to 300kW of power for up to 8 seconds and this shaves almost a second off the time it takes to propel you from 0-62mph.
When looking at electric cars, the key focus for many customers is more focussed around how far it will go rather than how fast it will go. The e-tron Sportback also delivers here. It has an impressive range of up to 240 miles on a battery charge which allows for both your everyday commutes as well as much longer journeys. What’s more, the e-tron Sportback can be charged back to 80% battery life in just under half an hour. Electric driving is the future.
The excellent electric engineering doesn’t stop there either. The e-tron Sportback uses the latest state-of-the-art technology to recover energy used and recharge the cars battery by deploying its electric motors as generators. The system is so seamless that you won’t even be aware of it happening as you lift off the accelerator or apply the brakes.
