A model for Audi’s e-tron Sportback was taken off on Tuesday at the 2019 Geneva International Motor Show, seeing the automaker’s next electric vehicle.
The e-tron Sportback is a roadster like rendition of the e-tron hybrid SUV that went on special for 2019. The more dashing e-tron Sportback is slated to achieve showrooms recently or ahead of schedule next as a 2020 model.
The model still wears some disguise gear yet the similitudes to the e-tron are obvious, especially concerning the fake grille and the structure of the lights. The stage is Volkswagen Group’s C-BEV, which is identified with the SUV rendition of the MLB particular stage in vehicles like the Audi Q5 and Q7.
Powertrains ought to be shared between the two EVs, as well. At dispatch, we should see a twin-engine, all-wheel-drive powertrain conveying a most extreme 400 strength and 490 pound-feet of torque. It should result in 0-60 mph increasing speed in around 5.5 seconds and a top speed of 124 mph. A 95-kilowatt-hour battery should mean a range somewhere in the range of 200 and 250 miles. Quick energizing at to 150 kilowatts is conceivable.
A sportier e-tron S Sportback with an additional engine at the back pivot could be propelled sometime later.
Inside, the structure should coordinate with the e-tron, which means a trio of screens framing the dash, with one filling in as the instrument bunch and two progressively incorporated in the middle stack for infotainment and atmosphere settings. Models with cameras supplanting side mirrors will likewise include a screen on each side of the dash. Lamentably, the tech is as yet not permitted in the United States so we’ll get regular side mirrors here.
Creation of the e-tron Sportback will keep running close by the e-tron at Audi’s plant in Brussels, Belgium. Estimating should come in at a slight premium to the e-tron’s $75,795 base sticker.
Indeed, even before the vehicle’s entry, Audi has affirmed generation of three additional EVs. The rundown incorporates an electric adaptation of the Chinese-advertise Q2 L in the not so distant future, and the e-tron Gran Turismo super vehicle and Q4 e-tron (likewise on show in Geneva in idea structure) due in 2020.
