New Audi e-tron Sportback revealed

28th August 2020 | Steve Lumley

The new Audi e-tron Sportback offers a coupe-inspired design.

 

Electric car fans have a new Audi e-tron Sportback to enjoy with the 50 Quattro and the 55 Quattro.

This is the second model in the firm's all-electric e-tron line-up, and will stand along with the original e-tron SUV.

The specifications at launch will be the e-tron S line, Launch Edition and Vorsprung.

55 Quattro model with a 95 kW battery

Initially, the 55 Quattro model with a 95 kW battery will be available immediately and followed by the 50 Quattro model with a 71 kW battery later this year.

Audi says that the WLTP driving range of its new e-tron Sportback is up to 241 miles.

It also has - in the 'boost' driving mode - an impressive 0 to 62 mph sprint time of 5.7 seconds.

With its unmistakable SUV silhouette, the e-tron Sportback offers a distinct alternative for those wanting an all-electric vehicle.

Europe's best-selling premium SUV electric vehicle

The five-door model may be as popular as standard e-tron, which is now Europe's best-selling premium SUV electric vehicle.

As potential car lease drivers will expect, the Audi's virtual cockpit will be included along with the touchscreen MMI Touch system and two monitors.

There's also wireless smartphone integration and wireless handset charging.

Drivers also get Internet connectivity and upgraded satnav mapping, courtesy of Google Earth.

e-tron Sportback Launch Edition spec

The e-tron Sportback Launch Edition spec includes cruise control, rear camera enhanced parking system, lane departure warning and adaptive cruise assist.

The entry-level model also features 22-inch alloy wheels with orange brake callipers.

And with a powered-door closure, the e-tron Sportback's doors shut almost silently.

The top speed for the new model is 124mph and for everyday use, the car will rely almost exclusively on the rear electrical electric motor.

When necessary, the front unit will be seamlessly and instantly activated to boost power.

The e-tron Sportback 55 Quattro

Using a fast charging station, the e-tron Sportback 55 Quattro can recharge its battery to 80% of capacity in just 30 minutes.

Charging at home will take longer; the 55 Quattro will need 14 hours to recharge from a flat battery to fully charged.

There's also a remote preconditioning system so drivers can activate the ventilation and heating unit from their smartphone so they can heat or cool the cabin before they get in.

For those buying the e-tron Sportback Vorsprung, they will get to control their seat heating as well as window and steering wheel heating functions.

There's no information on prices yet but the Audi e-tron Sportback will make for a popular car leasing choice - especially for business users.
