Ahead of its debut at the 2019 Los Angeles Auto Show in November, a new Audi e-tron Sportback is hitting the roads with no camouflage, caught by spy cameras.
The upcoming model is previewed by the 2017 e-tron Sportback. The company unveiled it at the Shanghai Auto Show.
Prototypes feature a sportier style, a bespoke rear-end profile, a lowered stance, a steeper rear window line, digital rear-view cameras in place of conventional door mirrors, like on the standard e-tron, the same rear LED brake light bar like on the A8 limousine.
The Audi e-tron may well be a certain alternative to the Audi A7 Sportback. Expect a production-ready car will ride on 23-inch alloy wheels, like the concept, and deliver 408 hp and 487 lb-ft (660 Nm) like the e-tron quattro. The Sportback’s 0-60 mph acceleration time will also be similar – 5.5 seconds.
Like the sibling SUV, the coupe-SUV will use 150-kW EV chargers and cover at least 248 miles on a single charge.
The e-tron Sportback will probably offer several power output options and, certainly, will be more expensive than the regular model priced from $74,800 (USA), €80,900,00 (Germany), £71,560 (UK).
