The number of electric SUVs continues to increase. Following last night’s debut of the Ford Mustang Mach-E, Audi has announced that it will also unveil a new electric SUV this week, the 2020 Audi e-tron Sportback.
The 2020 e-tron Sportback is the second fully electric model to wear the “e-tron” badge, following the introduction of the e-tron SUV. The e-tron Sportback is essentially a more coupe-like version of the e-tron. It’s expected that the 2020 e-tron Sportback will look pretty close to the concept version.
In addition to the e-tron Sportback, Audi is also going to the latest additions to the sporty RS lineup, which includes the RS Q8, which features an eight-cylinder twin-turbo engine, quattro sport differential, all-wheel steering, and electromechanical active roll stabilization.
Audi is also going to reveal the RS 5 Panther edition, which is limited to just 100 available units, of which 75 are sportbacks and 25 are coupes. The RS 5 Panther edition features Panther Black crystal effect paint, 20-inch 5-twin-spoke edge design bi-color wheels, an RS interior design package with black Alcantara elements including the steering wheel and sides of the center console, fine Nappa leather interior in black with crescendo red stitching, and black seatbelts with a red edge. The RS 5 Panther Edition is priced at $88,995.
Lastly the 2020 S6, S7, and S8 will also be on the stage this week at the 2019 Los Angeles Auto Show.
