Audi Announces New E-Tron S Models

Audi has of course followed in the footsteps of other big name car manufacturers and entered the electric vehicle market.

The Audi E-Tron range of electric vehicles is about to become bigger thanks to the upcoming, high-performance and sporty S models. The E-Tron and the E-Tron Sportback models will get the S treatment, and the biggest changes include the three-motor drivetrain, two driving the rear axle.

Cars will have almost 500 horsepower and both models will complete the 0 to 60 mph run in 4.5 seconds. In addition, both S models will have electronically limited top speeds of 130 mph, for obvious reasons.

The third motor drives the front axle, but will only activate when there is a need for extra power, or when some loss of traction happens. This feature is there to keep the vehicle system as efficient as possible at all times.

The Audi E-Tron S models are also going to have a new charging system giving them a charge from 5% to 80% in around 30 minutes. Last but not least, the sporty versions of E-Tron models will be equipped with new driving dynamics software that give you controlled drifts, in proper traffic conditions.

Regarding the exterior upgrades, the cars will have enhancements like wider wheel arches, new paint schemes, and sportier contoured bumpers.
