New Audi E-Tron Sportback Concept
Audi E-Tron Sportback Concept Has Hundreds Of LEDs. Previews production model due in 2019. At the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show, Audi introduced the E-Tron Quattro to signal its electric crossover agenda. That concept will morph into a production model in 2018 and it will be followed a year later by this, the “coupe” version. The E-Tron Sportback debuting today at Auto Shanghai is yet another crossover-coupe mashup from VAG and it shares the spotlight at the show in China with two other electric concepts featuring a similar body style: the VW I.D. Crozz and the Skoda Vision E. As hinted by Audi in the numerous teasers released in recent days, the new concept with the four-ring logo is packed with light-emitting diodes. Besides having full-LED headlights and taillights, the E-Tron Sportback has approximately 250 extra LEDs on the front bumper to the left and right of the corporate singleframe grille. These form different lighting patterns as a way to communicate with the other cars on the road. The Audi logo is illuminated by LEDs as well. The 4.9-meter-long, 1.98-meter-wide, and 1.53-meter tall concept is not all about the LEDs, though. At its heart is a beefy electric powertrain developing 320 kilowatts (430 horsepower) or up to 370 kW (496 hp) once the Boost mode is activated. It’s enough EV punch to enable the E-Tron Sportback run to 62 mph (100 kph) in a swift four and a half seconds. If you care more about range rather than outright performance, the latest crossover-coupe concept from Audi has a large 95-kWh lithium-ion battery pack with enough juice for more than 310 miles (500 kilometers) in the rather optimistic New European Driving Cycle (NEDC). Typical concept cues include the large alloy wheels (a 23-inch set in this case), side cameras, and a minimalistic interior cabin with an all-digital instrument cluster and a generous touchscreen for the infotainment system. Sitting below it is yet another touchscreen for controlling heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC), while positioned above the glove box is a fourth thin and wide screen showing details about the weather, time, and multimedia info. Audi hasn’t said a word about where it will put together the production model, but it might share the assembly line with the non-coupe version already confirmed to be built at the firm’s factory in Brussels, Belgium.

Audi E-Tron Sportback Concept INTERIOR
On display at the 2017 Shanghai Auto Show, the study may be referred to as a 'Sportback', which is the brand's way of naming its hatchbacks, but with its crossover-ish shape and sloping roofline, the E-Tron Sportback concept doesn’t exactly resemble any of the company's current cars. At 4.90 meters (16.1 ft) long, 1.98 meters (6.5 ft) wide, and 1.53 meters (5.0 ft) tall, and with a wheelbase of 2.93 meters (9.6 ft), the new electric Audi concept falls in the same segment as the BMW X6 and Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe. Its front end is dominated by the slender headlights with LED technology, illuminated four-ring logo that sits in the middle of a grille-like shaped part with a black contour and a sporty apron. The muscular lines continue on the lower part of the doors and on the rear bumper, whereas the taillights are joined together by a light strip. Small cameras replace the conventional door mirrors, and besides the technology advantage, Audi says that these also improve the air flow and reduce the wind noise that is projected in the cabin at high speed. Extended wheel arches, the lack of door handles and the massive 23-inch wheels with a 6-spoke design, complete its imposing exterior. The strictly four-seat cabin has a modern layout, with edgy lines, a 3-spoke steering wheel with an illuminated logo and a generously sized infotainment screen incorporated into the middle of the dashboard, and more touch-sensitive screens sitting right beneath it. Powering the car company's latest study are three electric motors, one mounted on the front axle and two on the rear, which work together to send 429 HP to all four corners, or up to 496 HP with the Boost mode engaged. This recipe, which will be adopted in future production electric Audi models, allows the E-Tron Sportback to accelerate from rest to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.5 seconds. Positioned between the two axles, below the passenger compartment, is a liquid-cooled lithium-ion battery, featuring 95kWh of capacity, which allows the concept to travel for more than 500 km (311 miles), according to NEDC estimates. Audi's all-new E-Tron Sportback won't remain a concept for long, as the automaker will put it into production in 2019.
