We’ve divided the article into specific sections for easier navigation. Click the links below to jump to different areas or read on for the full article. We also have an overview of the full specifications, an image gallery, detailed information about charging performance, and some online reviews. Our sections:

Performance

With overboost, the Audi e-tron S Sportback reaches a maximum power of 370 kW (503 hp / 496 bhp). Without overboost, it delivers 320 kW (435 hp / 429 bhp). The maximum torque is 973 Nm (718 lb-ft). It can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (0 to 62 mph) in 4.5 seconds and reaches a top speed of 200 km/h (124 mph), demonstrating its solid performance.

Battery, range, and charging

The high-capacity battery has a gross capacity of 95 kWh and a net usable capacity of 86 kWh, providing an 9 kWh buffer (9.5%) for battery protection. With a nominal voltage of 396 volts, the system is classified as a 400-volt battery system, aligning with industry standards. This Lithium-Ion battery utilizes NMC (Nickel Manganese Cobalt) technology.

Under the WLTP (Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure) standard, the vehicle’s range varies between 379 to 347 km (236-216 miles), depending on the specific configuration and options, such as wheel size. Larger wheels, for instance, can increase energy consumption and subsequently reduce the overall range. The vehicle’s energy consumption is rated at 22.7 kWh/100 km for the base model and 24.8 kWh/100 km for the top-tier model under the WLTP test cycle. For more details about the range, see real-world data and range listing on this model’s range and consumption page.

The vehicle supports fast DC charging with a maximum power of 150 kW. Charging from 0% to 100% takes approximately 44 minutes, while a more typical charging scenario from 10% to 80% takes 26 minutes with an average charging speed at 139 kW. Considering an additional 5 minutes for each charging stop due to driving interruptions, the optimal charging range is from 3% to 81%. This results in an effective charging speed, including time lost, of 118 kW, with each charging session taking about 34 minutes and 14 seconds..

In a theoretical 1000 km challenge, starting with a full battery and maintaining a constant speed of 120 km/h (75 mph) under ideal conditions with an assumed consumption rate of 28 kWh/100 km, the trip would take approximately 10 hours and 0 minutes. This journey would require three charging stops from 4% to 80%, with a total charging time of 100 minutes.

Onboard charger

The standard onboard charger supports up to 11 kW for Level 1 and Level 2 AC charging. This allows you to fully charge the battery from 0 to 100% in approximately 7 hours and 49 minutes using a home charging setup. For faster charging, you can opt for an optional onboard charger that supports up to 22 kW. With this upgrade, you can achieve a full charge from 0 to 100% in just about 3 hours and 54 minutes at home.

Charge port

The location of the charge port is on the left front side. This location makes it easy to charge stations where you park side into the charger. Connector types vary by market: this model uses CCS Combo 1 in North America and CCS Combo 2 in Europe. For complete specifications for all markets, refer to the full specifications. A second port is on the right front side. This extra port gives you more parking options for AC charging. The connector types vary between the different markets. This model uses J1772 for North America and for Europe, TYPE2. See full specifications for all markets.
