The e-tron takes it up a 3rd notch with 3 electric motors.
The sports orientated e-tron S Sportback with fully electric drive uses three electric motors, two of which operate on the rear axle. Their intelligent drive control raises vehicle safety, and dynamic handling in particular, to a new level. In addition to the electric all-wheel drive, the vehicle is equipped with electric torque vectoring with active and fully variable torque distribution on the rear axle.
With up to 503PS of system power and 973 Nm (717.6 lb-ft) of torque, this results in a 0-62 mph sprint of 4.5 seconds and a 130.5 mph electronically limited top speed, yet the e-tron S Sportback also has a range of up to 223 miles in the WLTP driving cycle.
And then there’s the looks, a true electric brute – we love it.
