The new Audi e-tron Sportback makes an immediate impression. With quattro all-wheel drive and a power output of 300 kW in boost mode it sprints from 0-62mph in just 5.7 seconds. And it can go the distance - travelling up to 240 miles* on a single charge and charging up to 80% in under 30 minutes.
Our second fully electric model, the new Audi e-tron Sportbackis now available to order with on-the-road prices starting from £79,900 (before OLEV grant). In the UK, the standard specification starts on S line trim. The more aerodynamic profile of the e-tron Sportback (compared with its sibling the Audi e-tron SUV) gives the standard S line car a maximum range of 240 miles. It can accelerate from 0 to 62mph in just 5.7sec when using boost mode.
The Audi e-tron Sportback combines the power, presence and space of an SUV with the elegance of a four-door coupé and the progressive character of an electric car. It is 4,901 millimetres long, 1,935 millimetres wide and 1,616 millimetres high. Its roof extends flat over the muscular body, dropping down steeply to the rear—in typical coupé style— and flowing into the steeply raked D-pillars. The lower edge of the third side window rises towards the rear— a typical Sportback feature.
With the octagonal Singleframe, the powerful contours above the wheels and the sculpted rear end, the Audi e-tron Sportback is perfectly aligned with the brand’s contemporary design philosophy. The Singleframe with its vertical struts is presented in a light platinum grey that characterises the e-tron model line and is largely enclosed, signalling to the outside world that the SUV coupé is fully electric. In the lower area of the matrix LED headlights, four horizontal segments create the e-tron-specific signature in the daytime running lights. This is taken up at numerous points on the model and interpreted in three dimensions, for example, on the striking side sills. Their black inlays draw the eye to where the battery, and thus the energy centre, of the Audi e-tron Sportback can be found. The designers also varied the signature at the broad diffuser, drawing attention to the absence of exhaust tailpipes. A light strip connects the LED lights to one another.
The Audi e-tron Sportback 55 quattro allows the driver to savour efficiency and performance in a supremely calm environment. Each axle is fitted with an asynchronous electric motor that is fed with three-phase current by the power electronics. With an output of 265 kW and 561 Nm (413.8 lb-ft) of torque, the two standard electric motors pack a powerful punch in launching the SUV coupé from a standstill – locally emissions-free and in virtual silence. The Audi e-tron Sportback 55 quattro takes just 6.6 seconds to reach 62mph, and its top speed is electronically limited to 124mph. By shifting from drive range D to S and fully depressing the accelerator pedal, the driver can activate boost mode. Here, the drive generates 300 kW of output and 664 Nm (489.7 lb-ft) of torque for eight seconds. This enables the SUV coupé to sprint from 0 to 62mph in 5.7 seconds.
Two-stage planetary gearboxes with one gear range transfer the torque from the electric motors to the axles. A switch, which the driver can operate with the thumb and forefinger, is used to select the gears. It is embedded in an elegant lever that is set low above the centre tunnel and serves as a hand rest.
Electric all-wheel drive ensures outstanding traction and on any terrain. With it, Audi is writing a new chapter in the history of quattro drive. It continuously regulates the ideal drive torque distribution between both axles—within fractions of a second. In most driving situations, the Audi e-tron Sportback relies exclusively on its rear electric motor—for exceptional efficiency. If the driver requests more output than it can provide, the front unit is instantly activated. This also happens predictively before slip occurs in icy conditions or when cornering fast, or if the car understeers or oversteers.
A key factor behind the sporty character and outstanding transverse dynamics is the low installation position of the drive components—resulting in a centre of gravity that is much lower than in a conventional SUV. All of the heaviest components are concentrated in the centre of the vehicle. The axle load distribution with a ratio of almost 50:50 is perfectly balanced; the self- steering behaviour is neutral. With components such as the five-link suspensions, the progressive steering and the electrohydraulic brake system, the suspension combines the latest technologies, which together ensure agile vehicle handling and a high degree of comfort.
