Like its non-Sportback, E-Tron brothers, the Sportback is available in 50 Quattro and 55 Quattro versions.
The E-Tron Sportback 50 Quattro offers 230 kW of power combined with a maximum torque of 398 lb-ft. Because of this lower power and cost, the 50's handle about 265 pounds less battery than its more powerful sibling, giving it a range of just 215.6 miles on the WTLP.
The E-Tron Sportback 55 Quattro is the more powerful of the two, releasing 265 kW and 414 lb-ft of torque with available overboost mode with 300 kW and 490 lb-ft. This gives the big machine a 0-62 time of 5.7 seconds. Even with all that extra power, the 55's larger battery pack allows it to reach 277.1 miles in the WTLP cycle.
The 50's can be charged with 120 DC high-speed chargers, reaching 80% of the battery in about half an hour. The 55s can accomplish exactly the same feat, but using the 150 kW DC fast charge.
Luggage space is up to 21.7 cubic feet with seats up and 58.4 cubic feet with rear seats folded down. But don't forget the incredibly cavernous 2.1 cubic feet of space available in the front trunk. Ooooooh. Aaaaaaah.
At first glance it is a little bit difficult to really tell the difference between an E-Tron and an E-Tron Sportback. But if you look closely, you can see it. It's not exactly an ugly car, but it would look so much better if it was about 5 "lower than the ground and didn't have the hideous plastic lining around the wheel openings. Why do people like it?
The E-Tron Sportback will debut in Europe next spring with a base price of € 71 350. No word on prices or availability in the US, despite the launch of the model in Los Angeles.
