Audi will introduce its all-electric 2020 e-tron Sportback at Los Angeles Auto Show Nov. 20. The e-tron Sportback is the car builder’s second fully electric production model from Audi of America, and, like the original e-tron, will offer a driving range of more than 200 miles per charge.

The first electric Sportback from Audi merges what Audi describes as “thrilling design with the excitement of electric driving in a five-passenger SUV package.”

According to Audi, the Audi e-tron Sportback, “Combines the brand’s innovations in electric driving with thrilling design cues that are distinctly Audi.”

Audi describes the e-tron Sportback further as, “The second fully electric model to bear ‘e-tron’ badging that emphasizes emotional design and which conveys a stylish presence on the road.”

The five-passenger SUV coupe is capable of “impressive driving dynamics”, claims Audi, and is equipped with standard electric quattro® all-wheel drive to help provide exceptional control and confidence in a variety of situations.

From the inside out, in keeping with the brand’s e-mobility philosophy, the e-tron Sportback continues the approach of a design oriented toward repeatable performance, longevity and peak charging power. The second fully electric model from the brand provides the fit and finish that luxury buyers expect in the segment.

Inside, the e-tron Sportback showcases features first introduced in the e-tron SUV, including smartphone-like MMI touch response1 infotainment systems paired with built-in Amazon Alexa integration2 and distinct e-tron family characteristics.
