Audi’s E-Tron Sportback Concept Shows Up On Hamburg Rooftop

Shaped in a similar fashion to its non-electrified BMW X6 and Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe rivals, the Audi E-Tron Sportback concept previews a production car that’s expected to arrive in 2019.

Once it touches down, the E-Tron Sportback will challenge the likes of the Tesla Model X, as well as the Faraday Future FF 91. Thus far, the concept is powered by three electric motors, one on the front axle and two at the rear.

As for this particular car, it was spotted on the roof of a garage in Hamburg, Germany, showing off its massive 23″ wheels and rear LED light strip. Pretty much the same car we saw in Shanghai back in April.

Among its most defining features, both outside and in, we can count the slender LED headlights, illuminated four-ring badge, cameras for door mirrors, three-spoke steering wheel and plenty of touch-sensitive screens at the driver and passenger’s disposal. A couple of these features are even visible in this video, courtesy of Sebastian Spieszko.

The concept’s 95kWh liquid-cooled lithium-ion battery can help it travel more than 500 km (311 miles), while the grand total of 429 HP allows it to hit 100 km/h (62 mph) from a standstill in 4.5 seconds.

    Looks nice. I hope that they actually release it and sell it for a decent price and make enough that everyone that wants one can purchase one without having to wait two years.

    So they copied the Honda Cross Tour?!?!

  • MarketAndChurch

    I can’t believe how tiny that looks compared to the other cars around it. From the pictures at the autoshow, I sort of pictured this being the size of the X6.
