We know that the upcoming Audi e-tron Sportback will be making its debut at the 2019 LA Auto Show next month. It’s been teased and spied for months now but the official review is almost there. However, a new render shows off what it’s likely going to look like with extreme accuracy.
Obviously, we don’t know exactly what the Audi e-tron Sportback will look like in full production form. Though, it’s not to hard to guess. After the brand itself released some camouflaged images of it, and the silently showed off the production version at the Frankfurt Motor Show, we can pretty accurately imagine what the real car looks like. In this new render, we get to see just that.
Essentially, this new render shows off the Audi e-tron Sportback with the overall design from the standard e-tron SUV but with some sportier touches. Certain details like the muscular reach haunches and the black side-skirt trim are also likely to be very similar to the production car’s.
None of this render is really a surprise, though. It’s exactly as we imagined the production car to be and it’s almost certainly going to be accurate. That’s not what we’re excited about, though. Instead, we’re excited to find out what it’s like to drive and how much it will cost.
While the current Audi e-tron SUV is a good car, it’s one that falls a bit short of expectations in a few areas. There are a lot of critics who will bemoan its relative lack of range, compared to its competitors, but its 204 miles of range is more than enough, as we learned awhile back. Mostly, though, we’re concerned with how it drives. The standard e-tron SUV is a very comfortable, luxurious and quiet SUV. But it’s boring to drive. So we’re hoping that the upcoming Audi e-tron Sportback is a bit more fun, a bit more athletic, than the current all-electric SUV. Also, we’re hoping it will be significantly cheaper.
