As you may imagine, leasing the new Audi E-tron Sportback is not too dissimilar from the E-tron SUV on which it is based. The sister car, released just under a year before the Sportback model has already proved very popular as Audi’s first fully electric
SUV model. The question is, what is different in the Sportback?
The main difference you will find with the E-tron Sportback is the exterior design. The rear of the car delivers a more coupe-like roofline which blends well with the more aggressively designed trims and generally more sporty appearance. This upgraded design pits the E-Tron Sportback against the Jaguar I pace for looks and performance.
How does the Sportback perform?
The E-tron Sportback has a very suitable 240 miles of range from a single charge, which gives more than enough for family life and longer motorway journeys such as commutes to work and back home for the week. This is very comparable to the E-tron SUV with 250 miles dependent on the driving mode. The Sportback also offers a very convenient charging time, with Audi quoting an 80% charge possible in under 30 minutes. With more and more charging stations now available at supermarkets, this means you can recharge your E-tron while you grab milk and bread.
Inside the Audi E-tron Sportback
On the inside, you will find little difference from the previous E-Tron model. The boot is marginally smaller than the SUV due to the sloping design of the roofline, but there is still enough room for day-to-day life with capacity to spare. The cockpit is almost identical to the SUV but this is in no way a bad thing. The premium materials you expect remain as does the solid build quality of all Audi models. If you are looking for futuristic elements, the Sportback is available with virtual exterior mirrors which use cameras to project video to the door interior screen, granting the driver an enhanced view when parking. A handy upgrade for those small city-centre spaces.
