Sportback Version of E-Tron SUV Arrives In 2020

Audi revealed what's next in the E-Tron lineup and one of them is a Sportback version of the E-Tron SUV. It's not clear how exactly the Sportback version will come to life, if its just a roof modification or MUCH more involved than that, but its great to see Audi progressing. Our E-Tron SUV's have been out long enough for changes to be due. More details to come at the LA Auto Show in November.

As someone that doesn't need all the space of the current E-Tron SUV, its a relief that a Sportback version is in the works!

FINALLY we get a first look at the E-Tron Sportback production model. This is a model I will likely get as the current E-Tron SUV exceeds my cabin/cargo space needs.

The next member of Audi’s all-electric e-tron family is ready for launch and these spy photos clearly attest it.

The 2020 Audi e-tron Sportback has been spotted by our photographers virtually undisguised, wearing only tiny patches of black tape on the headlights and the third lateral windows. Scheduled to debut on November 19 at the LA Auto Show, the e-tron Sportback is the coupe-styled version of the e-tron SUV and that’s pretty obvious looking at this prototype.

Key design features include the sloping roofline which alters the shape of the side window line, and the rear end which is completely different to the e-tron’s.

While the face looks very similar to its more conventional sibling, the rear adopts fastback styling which results in a completely new tailgate design and slightly revised taillights. This particular prototype also features grey cladding around the entire lower end of the vehicle, for a more rugged appearance.

As with the e-tron, the Sportback version gets to keep the side rearview cameras, at least in Europe. We don’t get to see what’s inside, but the prototype is in right-hand-drive configuration. Expect the interior design to mirror that of the regular e-tron, though.

Something else the e-tron Sportback should have in common with the e-tron SUV is the electric drivetrain. Expect two electric motors that deliver a combined output of 355 HP (265 kW / 360 PS), upgraded to 402 HP (300 kW / 408 PS) in the so-called “Boost Mode.” When the latter mode is engaged, the Audi e-tron sprints from 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) in 5.5 seconds so we can expect the e-tron Sportback to at least as quick.

The driving range should also be similar at around 204 miles (348 km). That’s not spectacular but at least the e-tron offers a 150-kW fast charging system which “rewards” the crossover with approximately 54 miles (87 km) of range in ten minutes and 163 miles (262 km) in 30 minutes.

I'm like the new shape, very sleek looking! I think this is going to be very popular for Audi.
