Both the Sportback and standard E-Tron SUV will benefit from this S package.

We hope Audi offers it with this prototype's matte gray and orange color scheme. (That's a joke. Kind of.)

The E-Tron S has three electric motors that produce a claimed system output of about 429 horsepower and 596 pound-feet of torque.

The S model is nearly 2 seconds quicker than the standard version in the 0-to-60-mph sprint.

It's unclear how these performance enhancements will affect the E-Tron's range.
