Audi etron S and etron Sportback S Review

By now, the world has already witnessed Audi’s electric powertrains and hybrids, initially developing for motorsports then ultimately moving to electric towards Formula E.

Following the e-Tron crossover SUV, the first-ever Audi Electric Vehicle and the chain of e-Tron Sportback launched in 2019. Audi’s motorsports legacy started to manifest once again in 2020 through the latest e-Tron S and e-Tron Sportback S model.

Alternative to the Jaguar I Pace and Mercedes EQC, Audi e-Tron is perfect for EV lovers trying to stay low while relishing in the luxurious attribute of a roomy interior with a spacious boot. The creative drive limit of both e-Tron Sportback and e-Tron Sportback S boosts vehicle security and the dynamic approach to the next level. The full-electric drive on the back axle is equipped with a fully variable active electric torque vector.

While normal e-Tron generates 402 and 596 lb-ft of torque on two electric motors, the e-Tron S’s brand-new configuration adds the third engine stirring things a little.

Audi excluded one of the significant axle engines, particularly the back ones adding two small motors to both rear wheels.

In day-to-day driving, the front depowered engine whirls freely or set on a mode of average regeneration by catching the kinetic action from the front axle.

If the driver requires full power and switches to mode S by shifting the mode selector, the front shaft engine thrusts in, and suddenly the e-Tron S now possesses 718 lbs-ft of torque and 496 HP.

The one swift move increases acceleration from 0 to 60 in the time frame of fewer than 4.6 seconds, beside an electronically controlled speed of 130 MPH at tops.
