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.

What the Critics Say

"Where the Audi excels is in its looks, both inside and out. The fastback look is achieved with raked D-pillars and a window line that rises toward the rear. Rear headroom is just 0.8 inch less than in the Audi E-Tron. The Sportback has standard digital matrix LED headlights that break down the light into tiny pixels to illuminate the road in high resolution, providing the precision needed for better lighting and improved lane-centering systems, especially on a narrow road." -- Motor Trend

"In line with Audi's sophisticated styling and advanced technology, the Sportback is an enticing offering in the premium EV market. With standard all-wheel drive, a luxurious cabin, and a healthy list of advanced safety features, we look forward to putting the Sportback through the paces…" -- Consumer Reports

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 218 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.
