Audi today unveiled its much-awaited electric concept vehicle. Shown off to the press at Auto Shanghai 2017 today, Audi is calling it the e-tron Sportback. Audi has confirmed that its second all-electric car after the e-tron quattro is going to be based off of this concept. The company has also confirmed that this coupé crossover is going to hit the road a year after the quattro comes out.
The German car manufacturer has confirmed some details about its new electric vehicle concept. The company says that the e-tron Sportback is going to have a 320kW motor and that a boost mode will enable it to increase capacity to 370kW. This will enable the car to go from 0 to 62 miles per hour in 4.5 seconds. That’s impressive.
Audi e-tron Sportback’s motor is going to be backed up by a 95kWh battery pack. Rupert Stadler, the Chairman of the Board of Management of Adui AG, claims that it will be able to provide a range of 310.7 miles.
Given that the company is based in Germany, its mileage figures are based on NEDC ratings so folks in the United States should expect it to have an EPA estimated range of up to 275 miles. Customers will be able to configure their cars with options that include additional motors for all-wheel drive and more performance.
Audi is going to start production of the e-tron Sportback in 2019 and it expects to have it out to customers that very year.
