New 2019 Audi e-tron Quattro and Sportback are about to be some of Tesla’s closest rivals. Few years, after the concept version, the new crossover is already on its way. The first model to come will be the e-tron Quattro. We saw its concept version in 2015 and the production model is in the final stage of development. Also, the new e-tron Sportback should come right after. This will be some kind of a sportier variant of the Quattro. Just like you probably expected, these two models will come in a familiar relationship. So, this will be a coupe-like crossover.
In the mechanical aspect, these two models should be the same. This manufacturer is a part of the huge VW Group, so there are plenty of design solutions and technologies to borrow. Expect to see 2019 e-tron Quattro and Sportback very soon. The first one is almost ready.
2019 Audi e-tron Quattro and Sportback design
New models are on their way. The 2019 Audi e-tron Quattro is coming this year, while the Sportrback should come in 2019. When it comes to base design characteristics, two models will be the same. The company develops a new architecture for upcoming models, including these two. However, we must mention that this manufacturer already has few electric cars in its portfolio, including the electric version of the R8 supercar. Also, you should add various interchanges with other members of the VW Group. So, it becomes clear that these models have a great perspective and pretty much all experts predict great future.
In terms of base design characteristics, two models will be mid-size crossovers. Basically, you should expect the same relationship that can be seen between Q5 and Q6 models. The 2019 Audi e-tron Quattro and Sportback will also come in traditional SUV-ish and coupe-like body styles, respectively.
2019 Audi e-tron Quattro and Sportback styling
Just like we mentioned, the relation between these two models will be quite familiar. New 2019 Audi e-tron Quattro and Sportback will come with same mechanical characteristics, while the styling will be the most distinctive aspect of these two vehicles.
While the Quattro will be a classic crossover, the Sportback will feature a coupe-like body style. This is something that we can see on Audi’s crossover with even numbers in their name, but also in some rival companies, such as BMW with its already-legendary X6. The Sportback will come with a sloping roofline and will be less practical. On the other side, its shape should be much more attractive.
When it comes to the interior design, we should see same cabins. These two models will use the new A8’s as an inspiration. So, we should see those long horizontal lines, simple and elegant layout and plenty of technologies.
2019 Audi e-tron Quattro and Sportback powertrain
New 2019 Audi e-tron Quattro and Sportback will ride on the same platform and that includes the same powertrain as well. Although we don’t have official information, we can presume that we are about to see the same or similar system that concept version features. To remind you, a concept version came with some pretty amazing numbers. It featured an interesting system with a max power of 430 horses. There is one electric motor at the front and two on the rear axle. Also, there is a boost mode, which raises the max output to almost 500 horsepower. The battery pack has a capacity of 95 kWh, which should be enough for at least 250 miles on a single charge.
2019 Audi e-tron Quattro and Sportback release date
Both 2019 Audi e-tron Quattro and Sportback are in the late stage of development. The Quattro is almost done and will hit the market in the second half of year. On the other side, Sportback will come in 2019.
