Following a few official teasers released in the past few weeks, Audi have finally pulled the covers off the new E-Tron Sportback Concept. 

On display at the 2017 Shanghai Auto Show, the study may be referred to as a 'Sportback', which is the brand's way of naming its hatchbacks, but with its crossover-ish shape and sloping roofline, the E-Tron Sportback concept doesn’t exactly resemble any of the company's compact cars. 

In fact, at 4.90 meters (16.1 ft) long, 1.98 meters (6.5 ft) wide, and 1.53 meters (5.0 ft) tall, and with a wheelbase of 2.93 meters (9.6 ft), it's significantly larger, and, besides its height, it falls in the same segment as the BMW X6 and Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe. 

Its front end is dominated by the slender headlights with LED technology, illuminated four-ring logo that sits in the middle of a grille-like shaped part, with a black contour, and a sporty apron. The muscular lines continue on the lower part of the doors, and on the rear bumper, whereas the taillights are joined together by a light strip. 

Small cameras replace the conventional door mirrors, and besides the technology advantage, Audi says that these also improve the air flow and reduce the wind noise that is projected in the cabin at high speed. 

Extended wheel arches, the lack of door handles, and the massive 23-inch wheels, with a 6-spoke design, complete its imposing exterior. 

The cabin has a modern layout, with edgy lines, a 3-spoke steering wheel with the illuminated logo, and a generously sized infotainment screen incorporated into the middle of the dashboard, with touch-sensitive screens sitting right under it. 

Audi wasn’t keen on detailing the interior, or releasing more images with it for that matter, but from what we've got, it seems that it has seating for four. 

Powering the car company's latest study are three electric motors, one mounted on the front axle, and two on the rear, which work together to send 429 HP to all four corners, or up to 496 HP in the boost mode. 

This recipe, which will be adopted in future production Audi models with electric drive, allows the E-Tron Sportback to accelerate from rest to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.5 seconds. 

Positioned between the two axles, below the passenger compartment, is a liquid-cooled lithium-ion battery, with 95 kilowatt-hours, which allows the concept to travel for more than 500 km (311 miles), as NEDC estimates. 

Audi's all-new E-Tron Sportback won't remain a concept for long, as the automaker will put it into production, in 2019.

 è già il terzo concept del gruppo VW che finisce col culo a punta ? questo, il crozz VW e lo skoda vision E

comunque si incomincia a vedere qualcosa di nuovo e buono soprattutto nel frontale e nella ricerca di nuove proporzioni
