Audi e-tron Sportsback gets revolutionary lighting systemNovember 22, 2019
The model resembles a standard e-tron, but differs in the increased range and unusual matrix headlights. Sales of the electric car will begin in the coming spring.
Audi introduced a new car from its electric line – the e-tron Sportsback. According to Engadget, in terms of technical characteristics, it differs little from the standard e-tron, which was shown to the public more than a year ago. However, the improved aerodynamic form of the electric car gave an increase in range.
If the usual e-tron is able to overcome about 330 km on a single charge, then for the new model this figure is 350 km or 450 km, depending on the version.
The capacity of the e-tron Sportsback batteries is 71 kWh for the 50 quattro version and 95 kWh for the 55 quattro version, of which 91% is available for charging versus 88% for e-tron. Unavailable for stocks prolongs battery life, Audi says.
Like the e-tron, the new model will have cameras instead of mirrors, as well as the latest version of the MMI infotainment system. In addition, Sportback will receive an innovative lighting system due to matrix LED headlights on a micromirror. Thanks to millions of micromirrors, it accurately directs a ray of light, reveals cars in the oncoming stream, and even knows how to project images.
For buyers from the United States, the function will not be available – such complex headlights are prohibited there.
The Audi E-Tron Sportback will go on sale in the spring of 2020, first in Europe and then in the USA. The cost of the model is from € 71,000.
