In this very moment, the electric line-up of Audi is made out of two models: e-tron and e-tron Sportback. But the situation is about to chage because Audi published a few details about the S performance variant of the models.

The new Audi e-tron S and e-tron S Sportback will be soon unveiled and, for the first time, the German car manufacturer decided to put three engines. Two are at the back and one at the front.

When in Boost mode (only for eight seconds), the engines will deliver up to 503 horsepower and 973 Nm peak of torque. In normal models, the power is reduced to 435 horspower and 808 Nm peak of torque. The standard variant (55 quattro, photo) offers 406 HP (in Boost mode) or 355 horspower for the regular versions.

On the performance side, the e-tron S and e-tron S Sportback can run from not to 100 km/h in just 4.5 seconds, one second quicker than the standard versions.
