2021 Audi E-tron & E-tron Sportsback – 3 Things to Know

Featured Image

The Audi E-tron and E-tron Sportsback 2021 are two very impressive luxury EVs that stand neck to neck with each other in almost every aspect. They are both powered by all-wheel drivetrains, with powerful performance and superior comfort features on par with non-electric Audi vehicles. In terms of driving range, the 2021 E-tron models slightly fall behind Tesla and Jaguar’s likes. But the German manufacturer believes that the EV will make the transition from traditional vehicles a lot easier for people, along with the use of an Audi E-tron charger. 

An Overview of the 2021 E-tron:

Audi has introduced two models for 2021, with the base E-tron available at a lesser price compared to the sport variant. Luxury and performance are at the forefront of these vehicles, something which Audi is known for. There’s also an electric quattro all-wheel drive integration, which gives you an extra boost in performance.

Audi has also significantly improved the battery capabilities of both models. By using an Audi E-tron charger, the 2021 regular E-tron delivers up to 436 kms, whereas the E-tron Sportsback offers up to 446 kms range.


The E-tron line-up is driven by two electric motors, one at the front and the other at the rear axle. They work together to deliver an all-wheel drive, even though the real motor does most of the heavy lifting. The electric quattro all-wheel drive is faster than the traditional quattro, enabling the EVs to optimise the driving experience regardless of speed.

The 50 quattro Audi E-tron and E-tron Sportsback gives an acceleration of 0 – 100 km/h in 6.8 seconds, whereas the 55 quattro models offer an acceleration of 0 – 100 km/h in 5.7 seconds.


All E-tron models have an infotainment system featuring dual touchscreens. There’s a 10.1 inch display and an 8.8 inch one right below it. The former lets you use Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, whereas the latter is meant for climate control. The EV also includes the Bang & Olufsen audio system. The navigation system present will list out one or more Audi charging station on your way.

Driver Assistance and Safety:

Both the regular E-tron and E-tron Sportsback provide a range of driver-assist features, including the following:

  • Parking aid Plus with 360° camera for self-parking.
  • Adaptive cruise control with speed limiter, swerve assist, turn assist, and efficiency assist.
  • 360-degree cameras.
  • Intersection crossing assist that detects cross traffic.
  • Standard lane departure warning.
  • Audi pre sense front for forward collision warning
  • Audi pre sense rear for rear-end collision warning
  • Automated emergency braking.

So, which one should you pick? There isn’t a specific answer to it since the choice depends on your preferences and lifestyle. Both variants offer a comprehensive list of features, and their versatility and performance should keep you totally satisfied. If you prefer a more stylish, edgy look for your car, the E-tron Sportsback would be preferable. If you need more assistance, talk to a supplier offering Audi E-tron charging station today.
