The all-new 2021 Audi e-Tron S has been testing these days on the Nürburgring track. At first glance, this model looks boosted over the regular e-Tron. Furthermore, it looks aggressive and there are even more horses under the hood.
Generally, the new model has been powered by three electric motors and thanks to that, it provides more horses than the regular with its two electric motors. Audi also implanted a new electric torque vectoring system that improves the e-Tron S Sportback’s handling and agility. Besides powertrain and attractive look, the cabin of the S-badged performance variant is tech-rich with plenty of upscale materials.
2021 Audi e-Tron S Red Accents Gives More Aggressive Styling
Externally, the upcoming 2021 Audi e-Tron S looks handsome. The manufacturer used signature ‘S’ touches on the grille and it added illuminated aluminum door sill. We like this sporty design more than on the regular one. The front bumper is more massive and red ascents give more aggressive styling followed by a new digital matrix LED headlights.
On the back, this model hosts a beautiful spoiler and a rear diffuser that offers a more aerodynamic look. The rear diffuser is more prominent and fenders are 0.9 inches wider versus the base model. On top of that, this sporty crossover comes standard with 20-inch wheels with the option to select up to 22-inch rims. Moreover, body panels such as the arch trims, bumpers, and mirror housings are color-coded.
The German manufacturer Audi won’t change significantly cabin of the e-Tron S model. However, some improvements will happen. Inside, this SUV will be stylish and it will offer electrically-adjustable sport seats that provide maximum comfort. Like the regular e-Tron, the new one will offer room for five passengers. Optionally, buyers can add chairs with thicker bolsters and heated/ventilated seats with leather upholstery. The exterior mirrors are replaced with small virtual cameras and we can say that this is one of the best features of this car.
The Sportback uses a 12.1-inch touch screen system, Google Earth navigation, hybrid radio, and Alexa. On top of that, Audi e-Tron S deploys 12.3-inch Audi virtual cockpit as well. The latest driver-assistance features, such as adaptive cruise control and lane-keep assist are standard.
2021 Audi e-Tron S Delivers More Horses
As we already have mentioned, the all-new 2021 Audi e-Tron S is the boosted version of the popular e-Tron model. Besides some appearance updates, the forthcoming Audi e-Tron S will gain an additional third motor. Because it`s a high-performance version with letter S, this model will generate more power. According to the manufacturer, the total output of this model will be a little less than 500 horsepower. Torque will be high at 717 lb-ft thanks to the pair of motors at the rear axle. If we compare it with the e-Tron that provides 402 hp and 490 lb-ft of twisting power, this is a vast improvement.
The high-performance model can accelerate from 0 to 62 mph in just 4.5 seconds, while the top speed is electronically limited to 131 mph. Air suspension is standard on the e-Tron S model.
