Audi’s thrown its hat into the totally electric SUV ring with the all-new e-tron Sportback– a high-riding coupe to match the similarity the Jaguar I-Pace. The Audi will go on sale in 2019.

2019 Audi e-tron Sportback Styling
Looking like a cross in between an A7 and an A6 Allroad, the e-tron Sportback Concept certainly includes some much-needed variety to Audi’s range. From the front, its big two-tone bumper inverts the black and silver elements of existing Audi grilles to produce something various, but no less recognisable.
Its narrow slit-like headlights look much like those fitted to the bigger Q8 and are accompanied by a sideburn of daytime running lights on each side. In total, Audi’s festooned the concept with around 250 specific LED units. The back has actually been treated to a similarly modern style that blends the upcoming A8’s full-width brakelights with a heavily toned diffuser that compensates for its absence of any shiny exhaust tips.
Remarkably, the e-tron Sportback sports a comparable double-side-skirt design to the Jaguar I-Pace. On both cars, this strong horizontal feature helps exaggerate the distance between the wheels making each car appearance longer and more enforcing while reducing the slab-sidedness of their big door openings.

Few of these high-tech features are expected to make it to production however the dashboard’s driver-focussed layout and easy, minimalist design could greatly influence how the ended up roadway car’s cabin will look.

Powering this radical-looking coupe SUV will be a big battery pack and three electrical motors– one driving the front wheels and two turning the rears. On a complete charge, Audi declares it’ll travel more than 310 miles but naturally this range will lower substantially if you speed up hard. If straight-out speed is more up your street than long-distance cruising, the e-tron boasts as much as 496hp with Boost mode engaged and can apparently run from 0-62mph in 4.5 seconds– not bad for a two-ton car.
