Battery and Charging
|Range EPA||250 miles (402 km)|
|Range WLTP||277 miles (446 km)|
Battery pack capacity
kWh is a unit of energy, equivalent to the energy transferred in one hour by one kilowatt of power. The average electric car can do around 3 mi (5 km) on 1 kWh of energy.
Max charging power (AC)
Maximum power the car can take when charging from an alternating current power socket. It is determined by the on-board charger power.
Max charging power (DC)
Maximum power the car can take when charging at specially designed DC charging stations. Such stations are usually located near the main highways to enable convenient road trips.
|Avg. charging speed (DC)||~276 mph|
|Acceleration 0-60 mph||5.5 s|
|Top speed||130 mph (210 km/h)|
Up to 300 kW (402 hp) and 490 lb-ft (664 Nm) in "boost mode" for 8 seconds
|355 hp (265 kW)|
|Engine torque||414 lb-ft (561 Nm)|
|Efficiency||38 kWh/100 miles|
Permanent-magnet motor is good for efficiency, while AC-induction motor can produce greater power.
Body and Chassis
|Number of seats||5|
|Dimensions (LxWxH)||193 x 76 x 64 in|
Curb weight or kerb weight is the total weight of a vehicle with standard equipment, all necessary operating consumables such as transmission oil and air conditioning refrigerant, while not loaded with either passengers or cargo.
Maximum cargo volume of the vehicle with the seats upright.
|Towing capacity||1653 lb|
The Audi e-tron Sportback is an all-electric coupe SUV concept. It was first unveiled at the 2017 Shanghai Motor Show. It is based on the MLB platform. It has the same battery and powertrain as the Audi e-tron Quattro. The production is expected to start late-2019 or early-2020. Both cars will be produced in Belgium.
Despite its more aggressive lines, the Sportsback retains some decent cargo space (58.4 cubic feet) and rear headroom, which is just 20 millimeters (0.8 inches) less than in the Audi e-tron.
The car is equipped with the same 95 kWh battery pack as the SUV, but it can achieve a range of “up to 446 kilometers (277.1 miles) on a single battery charge,” which is roughly 10 kilometers (6.2 miles) more than the e-tron — again thanks to better aerodynamic performance.
Again, that’s based on the WLTP standard. EPA range is expected to be closer to 210 miles of range.
The Audi e-tron Sportspack engine output is 300 kW and 664 Nm (490 lb-ft) of torque, but that’s just for for eight seconds under “boost mode.”
The regular output is 265 kW and 561 Nm (414 lb-ft) of torque.
