1 of 43 Audi

The Sportback features the same 355 horsepower, dual-motor electric all-wheel drive powertrain, but gains the ability to decouple its front motor for less drag during cruising.

Audi has coupe-ified the E-Tron SUV, but the new electric crossover variant is more than just a styling update.

Audi has also unlocked more net capacity for the E-Tron Sportback's battery pack, up to 91 percent versus around 80.

The new roofline costs a few millimeters of second-row headroom and a bit of cargo capacity for bulky items, but is also more aerodynamically efficient.

Adding to the list of not coming stateside, European Sportbacks can also be had with side cameras that cut down on aerodynamic drag and noise. In North America, we'll have to make-do with good, old fashioned mirrors.
