Company Audi has presented the first “charged” electric cars in Europe appeared the top version of the e-tron S and e-tron Sportback’s. New items distinguished three-engine power plant, researched aerodynamics, special chassis tuning, with an emphasis on rear-wheel drive, as well as a drift mode.

Technically and Audi e-tron’s, and his kupeobrazny version e-tron Sportback’s identical: “charged” electric drives powerplant peak performance of up to 503 horsepower and 973 lb-ft of torque. Such features are available only for eight seconds during overboost and allow electrocreaser to accelerate from standstill to 100 kilometers per hour in 4.5 seconds and reach a top speed of 210 kilometers per hour.


Under normal conditions, three-engine installation on the family e-tron’s delivers 435 HP and 808 Nm of torque and 75 horsepower and 247 lb more than the “normal” e-tron quattro 55. Traction battery all electrocreaser the same – with a capacity of 95 kWh.

Since the e-tron’s pair of motors mounted on the rear axle, and each motor drives one wheel, the crossover system torque vectoring. In the usual “Eski” rear-wheel drive, front electric motor is connected only when wheelspin of the rear wheels. But in Sport mode the connection of the front axle does not occur, so the e-tron’s can perform controlled drifts.

Gambling controllability contributes retuned adaptive air suspension – if necessary, the clearance can be reduced by 76 millimeters. Another feature of the e-tron S – active aerodynamics. Front air intakes are only for the cooling of the brakes or components of a full drive, the rest of the time the blinds are closed to reduce air resistance.


According to tradition, the S-version has distinctive features: enlarged to 23 mm wheel arches, more aggressive bumpers, 20 – or 21-inch wheels and enhanced brakes with sectionseven mechanisms. In the basic version the calipers are black and adorned with logo-S, surcharge details are painted in orange color and labeling e-tron.
