About the Audi e-tron Sportback

Say hello to the newest member of the growing Audi lineup of all-electric vehicles -- the stylish, versatile, and exhilarating e-tron Sportback. The culmination of talented Audi engineers, the e-tron Sportback is powered by a dynamic 95 kWh battery pack positioned low within the body for improved handling and performance. The evocative design of the award-winning Audi A7 was used as an inspiration for the swept-back profile of the e-tron Sportback, striking a balance between versatility and aerodynamics. Along with innovative technology, drivers will experience a variety of upscale amenities inside the cabin including standard heated and ventilated leather-trimmed front seating. Equipped with a standard suite of driver-assistive safety technologies, the Audi e-tron helps you stay confident and protected from the unknown.

"There's no doubt about it, the fit and finish of the E-Tron Sportback's interior is worlds more luxurious and of noticeably higher quality than something like the Jaguar I-Pace, let alone anything Tesla has ever made." -- Roadshow by CNET

"The instant torque from the big Sportback's electric motors makes for incredibly satisfying launches and blink-of-an-eye passing power. The powertrain is absolutely the E-Tron's party piece, and its responsiveness becomes addictive. Boost Mode or no Boost Mode, the Sportback packs a heck of a punch." -- Autoblog

Electrifying Performance

Producing a total of 355 horsepower in its most basic form, the Audi e-tron Sportback is powered by an exhilarating all-electric powertrain. Once Boost Mode is engaged, you can accelerate from 0 to 60 MPH in an astonishing 5.5 seconds using the full 402 horsepower of the e-tron Sportback. Handling is both nimble and agile thanks to a perfected 50:50 weight distribution. Also increasing efficiency, an ingenious battery cooling process involves a barrier between the battery molecules and cooling fluid. Included as standard on all trim levels, the e-tron Sportback is benefitted by legendary electric quattro® all-wheel drive which helps you perform in both wet and dry conditions.

In only 10 minutes, you can get up to 58 miles of EV range by using the 150 kWh fast-charging capability of the e-tron Sportback. Spend 30 minutes at the same fast-charging station, and the battery can deliver up to 3 hours of total drive dime, equivalent to approximately 174 miles of total range. When you select the available towing package, the e-tron Sportback is rated to tow up to 4,000 pounds. Thanks to an EPA-estimated range of 222 miles and a growing network of charging stations across the country, the Audi e-tron Sportback is an excellent choice for drivers looking to switch to an all-electric driving lifestyle.
