Audi e-tron Sportback Concept, Production Set For 2019 – Live Photos, Videos

4 weeks ago by Mark Kane 14

Audi unveiled the e-tron Sportback concept from Shanghai, a vehicle which in two years will enter production (2019), as the second all-electric e-tron offering after quattro SUV that is released next year.

The latest concept is based on the same powertrain, with a 95 kWh battery pack that provides 500 km/310 miles+ of range (NEDC – so think ~400 km/250 miles of real world driving).

The e-tron Sportback is propelled via a three-motor all-wheel-drive configuration (one for the front axle and two for the independent rear wheels propulsion).

With up to 370 kW of power and 0-62 mph (100 km/h) time of 4.5 seconds, it’s a damn quick car.

The new e-tron is also the first with Audi’s new design language, one that we find very attractive over the outgoing style.

Below: Here we have set of live photos and videos from its launch to check out!

    It looks like they are trying very hard!

    Music lights etc!

    Looks like a refresh of the Accord Crosstour, a car almost universally derided as ungainly and ugly. I guess Honda was just ahead of its time, much like the Pontiac Aztec.

    That said, more electric choices are always good. Someone will like this and buy it for the looks, not just because it’s electric, and another electric convert will be created.

      This is exactly what I was going to say. the more the merrier but I just don’t get this car.

      1. Mark.ca says:

        Remember this is a concept so the production car will look different…hopefully a better looking one.

    I don’t get why this site is quite happy with Tesla stating they get 302 miles from a 90D, but when Audi says it will get 310 from a 95kwh pack it gets downgraded to 250mile range. We know the bolt gets this from a 60kwh pack and that the Tesla Miles work out OK, so why the Audi bashing bias?

    1. Nada says:

      They are convwrting the numbers from Europes overly optiomistic driving cycle to the more realistic EPA driving cycle…

      The writers of this site generaly dont bash anything but half the commentors here bash anythin non Tesla…

    2. Mikael says:

      It is not Audi bias, it is a general (unrealistic) NEDC to (realistic) EPA conversion.

      If you want actual numbers you will have to wait.

      1. R.S says:

        But he is kind of right, 95kWh should mean more than 250 miles. The Model X 90D, which has 85.8 kWh total capacity, has 257 miles of range. So the Audi should have more than 250 miles of range.

    Looks actually quit good. But for me personally it appears to be very big. Not very suitable for my lifestyle. But I could be wrong. Nonetheless it’s good to see all those cars in the next two years. But Audi has to do this to fulfill European laws concerning emissions. They’re way to high today and they have to reduce them significantly.

  5. Gazz says:

    How much? Electric cars are starting to get the same stigma that home solar had some years ago.

    A way for wealthy people to save money.

  6. David says:

    Yay! I-Pace competitor.

  7. jelloslug says:

    I consider this car only slightly more likely to come out than the FF91.

  8. bogdan says:

    Don’t expect that the production version will look like this. This is still the concept car.
    And still no word about the price. I guess they don’t want to everyone off yet.

    I guess they don’t want to scare everyone off yet (comment editing button could be usefull for some of us).
