The Audi e-tron Sportback has been seen at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show – albeit in light disguise. The new coupe-inspired all-electric SUV looks to compete with BMW X4 and Mercedes GLC, offering a sporty zero-emissions alternative to the premium mid-size SUV regulars.

Audi’s new e-tron Sportback will sit on the same foundation as the traditional e-Tron, which uses an alternative version of the Volkswagen Group’s MLB platform. Similarly, it will include an electric motor on both the front and rear axles, offering an impressive 168bhp and 188bhp. Like the standard e-tron, the system is expected to provide ‘boost’ function, producing a monstrous 402bhp for up to 10 seconds.

The same battery back and charging system can be found in the latest edition, following the e-tron’s brief as a long-range all-electric car. The new 2019 Audi e-tron is expected to receive a sophisticated energy recuperation system and unpinning for 150kW fast-charging. However, given the slightly more aerodynamic rear end, the e-tron Sportback could boast a little extra range.

Inside, the e-tron Sportback will have the same setup as the standard e-tron SUV with twin touchscreen controls and Audi’s 12.3 inch digital gauge cluster as standard. Wing-mounted cameras are optional and available in place of conventional rear-view mirrors and kerb cameras.

According to Audi service Greensboro experts, Practicality is something that defines the stance of the standard e-tron, with the Sportback’s sloping roofline encroaching on rear passenger and boot-space. The 600-litre boot capacity will probably discard around 70-litres or so, but the potential 60 litres of load space under the bonnet will be held back.

Like the conventional e-tron, the new 2019 Audi e-tron Sportback will receive just one trim level. And it is likely to be launched in 2020, with an S Line and Vorsprung edition to follow later.

Audi e-tron Sportsback Concept:

The Audi e-tron Sportback first emerged as a concept at the Shanghai Motor Show in 2017. Proportionally, the e-tron Sportback concept shares the similar length with an A7, while its height remains the same as a Q2. The concept’s inflated proportions is nicely camouflaged by neat design tricks such as the two-tone black and silver roof. What predominantly defines the stance of the trademark e-trick is the sunken bonnet and inverted front grille.

The new lighting system offers an impressive look to the new e-tron Sportback. For the first time, you will find Audi logos on the front and rear which are made up of LEDs, while the Matrix LED headlamps come equipped with tiny Matrix projectors which can display graphics onto the road to indicate other motorists and pedestrians which direction the car will be turning.

Inside, you will find continuation of the lighting theme, as the e-tron Sportback was the first car to use electro lighting surfaces. A special material of around 0.02 mm connects the car’s onboard electrics systems and lights up when the car is started. You can also anticipate the material on the centre console and sections of the seats to create a provide enough room and light.

Elsewhere inside, two hi-res digital displays compose the dash and centre console. Both feature tactile feedback, with the only physical buttons in the cabin to be found on the gearlever selector. The conventional wing mirrors have been replaced by small digital cameras which can be found in the upper sections of the doors.

Electric cars are widely recognized for their instant acceleration and amazing straight-line performance – and with 664 Nm of torque, the Audi e-tron is no different. While it may not produce a power guzzling performance as expected from a Tesla Model X, the e-tron will still have the grit and guts to jumpstart most motorists.

The instant torque and quattro all-wheel drive system have been the staple of Audi, sending power to the wheel that will provide the most instant traction.

With incredible refinement, the Audi never fails to command the attention on the open road. The inclusion of the standard air suspension system has made it comfortable. On 21 inch wheels, it seems more than capable of ruling over lumps and bumps – both on and off-road.

From every perspective, Audi e-tron is a quick car, and it is evident from the fact that it can sprint from 0 to 62 mph in just 5.7 seconds, while the top speed is electronically limited to 124 mph in an effort to preserve a usable all-electric range.

Compared to its rivals such as Jaguar I-Pace (0-62mph in 4.8 seconds) or a Tesla Model X 75D (0-62mph in 5.2 seconds) , it still offers all the torque, power and performance that typically define an electric car. It certainly isn’t slow, that’s for sure.

Overall, the vehicle is impressive. To keep it in good condition, be sure to take it to the nearby Audi repair center. Regular tune-ups and routine maintenance will surely keep the vehicle running strong for years.
