Audi Just Debuted Their E-tron Sportback And It's Basically The 'Batmobile'

I'll just go ahead and say that I believe Audi's to be some of the best-looking, most reliable cars on the market. Most of the time they come with a pretty steep price tag, but hey, if that's what ya gotta do for some top of line German engineering, then so be it! Take out a loan, snag a second job, don't eat for a few months.

It's par for the course with manufacturers like Audi to stay ahead of "automobile trends." Every luxury brand wants to be the one to pioneer the next best thing on the road. Not to discount any others, but Audi is doing the damn thing when it comes to the electric car game. The Verge describes:

"The E-tron Sportback will have 320 kilowatts of power — though Audi promises a “boost mode” to 370 kW — and can sprint to 62 mph in 4.5 seconds. A 95 kWh battery pack will enable just over 310 miles of range per charge, although that will probably be closer to 275 miles, given that the Germany-based Audi uses the European rating system for electric vehicle range. The automaker says the new electric coupe crossover will hit the market in 2019, about a year after the Quattro E-tron, Audi’s first electric concept which it introduced back in 2015."

 

62 mph in 4.5 seconds with an electric car? Eco-friendly and capable of getting out of most high-speed police chases unscathed? Where do I sign up? Alright, now let's get to the good stuff, what's the interior rocking?

The Verge goes on:

"The interior of the E-tron Sportback features a bunch of pretty, high-resolution touchscreens: one behind the steering wheel, two in the center console, and a few more scattered around. Digitally controlled LEDs at the front and rear of the car produce “an excellent light yield,” Audi says, while minuscule digital projectors “literally make their mark on the road ahead, turning light into a versatile, dynamic channel of communication with the surroundings.” In other words, the Audi badge on the front of the car ain’t the only thing that glows."
