Audi has unveiled the characteristics of the debut “charged” electric carFebruary 22, 2020
The German corporation has unveiled details regarding the S-variation of the e-tron electric crossover.
So, the electric car will acquire a 3-motor power unit, capable of maximizing 503 hp. and 973 Nm. In addition, the novelty is distinguished by the presence of sporting attributes, such as body kit and interior design.
From the technical side, the Audi e-tron S echoed the conceptual e-tron quattro: one asynchronous electric motor is located in front, the other 2 drive the rear wheels. Thanks to the 3-motor layout, it was possible to implement a traction vector control system.
Compared to the 2-engine e-tron version 55 quattro, which deliver 360 hp. and 561 Nm in simple mode and 408 hp at 660 Nm of torque in an 8-second overboost mode, the power of the e-tron S in simple mode increased to 435 hp (808 Nm) and the maximum performance is 503 hp. and 973 Nm. Acceleration to 100 km / h was reduced by 1.2 seconds to 4.5 seconds, and the maximum speed increased to 210 km / h.
Most likely, it was possible to improve the dynamic characteristics, in particular, by reducing the power reserve: the e-tron S has a simple battery of 95 kW / h. Currently, the German brand keeps secret the autonomy of the S-modification. For a simple e-tron 55 quattro, 400 km of WLTP range has been claimed.
Audi has distributed images of the exterior of the e-tron S concept, which has a camouflage color, but there is already information about the features of the “hot” variation. So, the new model is distinguished by optimized aerodynamics, 22-inch wheel disks, a more powerful brake system with 6-piston calipers and 400 mm discs in front, and also adaptive air suspension.
The serial version of the e-tron S should debut closer to the end of the year. Most likely, the debut of both the e-tron S and its “coupe-like” modification of the e-tron S Sportback will take place simultaneously.
