Journalists for the first time captured the prototype of the “charged” Audi E-Tron SMay 29, 2019
A more powerful crossover can have three electric motors, the total power of which will be 640 horsepower. It is not reported yet when exactly the e-tron S can appear, although this model was mentioned in the company’s future product line last summer. The presentation will take place in early 2020.
We are still in the early stages of exploring the prototypes of the Audi e-tron all-electric crossover. But spy photographers based in the Nürburgring may have already been able to capture a model with higher technical characteristics.
Announced as an e-tron Quattro S, this electric crossover should receive not only a more powerful propulsion system, but also an increased power reserve.
What exactly does this mean? The standard e-tron is equipped with two electric motors, front and rear, powered by a 95 kWh battery. This installation produces a total of 402 horsepower, so that the acceleration of cars from 0 to 100 km / h is 5.5 seconds. Our sources suggest that the high-performance version of the crossover, which will receive an index S, can get three engines – one in front and two behind for each rear wheel.
Theoretically, this can lead to an increase in power up to 640 hp, although we assume that in this case, the range can suffer greatly. Increase to 500 or even 550 hp it seems more realistic, especially considering that the e-tron battery should be just over 321.87 km. Initially, it was reported that the Audi electric crossover can travel on a single charge more than 402 km. Presumably, the “charged” version of the S will offer a more capacious battery pack.
