Audi has showcased the new e-tron Sportback Concept at the stage of 2017 Shanghai Motor Show. The new EV spawned from the e-tron Sportback will be squarely aimed at the upcoming Jaguar I-Pace.
The E-Tron Sportback could inspire or could actually be one of the three all-electric cars that Audi has planned to put on roads latest by 2020 as announced by the automaker at its annual press conference in March. In terms of various design and LED elements, the new concept resembles the Audi E-Tron Quattro, which made its official debut at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show.
This new e-tron concept is a called a ‘Sportback’ but the teased images hint at a car that may be a crossover-coupe in its body style. Power comes from three electric motors, two driving the rear wheels while one is mounted on the front axle. A combined output of 496bhp and a whopping 800Nm, enabling a 0-100kmph time of 4.5sec and a limited top speed of 210kmph. An advanced 95-kWh lithium-ion battery provides a driving range of 500km.
