2021 Audi e-tron Sportback : In a Nutshell

The Audi e-tron electric SUV was designed for buyers who are switching from internal combustion engines to feel opulent with the vehicle. It includes the way it drives, how the interior looks and feels, and how comfortable it is. However, its coupe-like counterpart, the e-tron Sportback, is more visually appealing.

Both e-tron and e-tron Sportback underpins Volkswagen Group’s MEB platform, which is a significantly revised version of the MLB platform that underpins the China-only Audi Q5 long-wheelbase model.

This intelligently designed electric SUV is a dream come true for those with a luxury budget, a convenient charger, and parking space that is large enough to house two or three cars. In contrast to its standard five-seat sibling, this slope-roofed version is surprisingly quick, spacious, and boasts impressive luxury and technology.

2021 Audi e-tron Sportback : Quick Tour

Audi E-Tron Sportback

Both the e-Tron and the e-Tron Sportback are 4.9 m long. A large grille dominates the front, with sleek LED headlights on either side. Moving on to the side profile, the e-tron Sportback distinguishes itself with a tapering roofline that ends in a notchback design, whereas the standard SUV has a more upright silhouette. Thus the rear of the Sportback gives it a much more attractive appearance.

In addition to looking good, the roof has been lowered by 13mm, resulting in a slipperier 0.25cd drag coefficient versus the standard 0.27cd. Both models have a full-width light bar connecting the LED tail lamps at the rear. Apart from this , The matrix LED headlights on the SUVs are eye-catching.

It also features a large single-frame grille, slim digital Matrix LED headlamps with a four-slat e-tron signature, stylish 20-inch alloy wheels and twin charging ports on each front fender. The Plasma Blue Metallic colour shown here is unique to the Sportback.

The interiors of the electric SUVs feature Audi’s latest design language, with the dual Audi’s MMI Touch Response interface system , consisting of a 10.1-inch touchscreen infotainment system on top and an 8.8-inch touch display for climate control and other functions placed lower down. Audi’s digital instrument cluster, dubbed Virtual Cockpit (with signature full-width Google Maps) is also available.

The Sportback’s roofline comes at the expense of 1.1 inches of headroom. Yes, there is less headroom than in the standard version. In fact, the e-Tron Sportback takes up less headroom than the Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe. But thanks to some clever scoops in the headliner, there is more-than-comfortable headroom, even for tall passengers. Legroom and seat comfort are also still generous. Wide door pockets, a deep centre storage cubby, and a smaller bin tucked beneath a hinged, sliding centre armrest provide plenty of storage.

The Sportback got a 95kWh battery with a range of up to 420 km, which should translate to around 350km in real-world use in our country. The claimed range of e-tron Sportback is significantly less than the 292 miles (470 km ) Jaguar claims for its I-Pace.

Because of the underfloor battery, the weight is concentrated lower down. As a result, the centre of gravity is significantly lower than that of a conventional SUV.Thus making e-tron Sportback surprisingly well-balanced despite its 2,595 kg weight.

With 408 horsepower and 664 Nm of torque, the E-Tron Sportback can reach 0-100kmph in 5.7 seconds. That’s not particularly impressive in the grand scheme of EVs, but it’s adequate for a vehicle of this size. Furthermore, the e-Quattro AWD system reacts so quickly that it provides grip like no other purely mechanical Quattro system can. The electric steering system is surprisingly smooth, mimicking the natural heft and feel of gas-powered Audi SUVs.

It can be charged at up to 11kW using an AC charger (or 22kW if you select it when ordering your car) and up to 150kW using a DC charger. The charging from 10-100 per cent took about 8 hours at 11kW on the AC wall box charger that comes with the car.
