VIDEO: Five Cool Facts About the Audi e-tron S and e-tron Sportback S

 

These two new Audi e-tron models are very exciting for most Audi fans. Not only do they look better than their standard siblings but they’re also much more powerful, much faster and also handle better. They’re genuine ‘S’ models, with better performance and dynamics than the normal cars. So we thought we’d take you through a bit of a visual tour and give you five cool facts about them.

 

In this video, we talk about their power and performance, as well as their handling capabilities and range. Both the Audi e-tron S and e-tron S Sportback are mostly the same but they do have some very subtle differences. For instance, the e-tron Sportback’s slightly different roofline is not only more stylish but also gives it better range, due to slipperier aerodyamics.

 

We also talk about how these two new e-tron models have three electric motors rather than two, a production-car first. Those three electric motors not only add power but they also improve dynamics. Two of those motors are at the back axle, allowing the e-tron to put power down to the exact wheel that needs it, at exactly the right time, through corners, rather than first routing power to a differential which would then distribute it to the wheels. This is not only more efficient but improves performance.

 

These are two very interesting SUVs and will be hugely important for the Audi brand moving forward. If these two cars do well, than Audi will continue to make high-performance electric cars, such as the Audi e-tron GT, which is what the world needs right now.

I've been in love with cars since I was a kid, specifically German cars. Now I get to drive them talk about them on the internet.
