Audi will release its all-new model in the coming months. It is a new 2021 Audi e-Tron s crossover with an all-electric powertrain. Built on a standard 95kWh e-Tron, S variant will deliver third electric motor and logically, more power. Moreover, if you are not a fan of the boxy e-Tron, the S version comes with a sleeker appearance.
Its sporty presence, perfect exterior paints, and improved performances are making this crossover a must-buy. We like it for a variety of reasons. The interior should gain very minor updates, unfortunately. As for the pricing details, the Four Rings manufacturer is yet to release official information.
2021 e-Tron S Exterior Facelift
Many of you were hoping to see the RS version. Instead, the all-new 2021 Audi e-Tron S is coming to the markets. This is a good thing as the S variant looks really sporty and very attractive. Unlike the regular e-Tron and its boxy shape, e-Tron S is sleeker and some parts are looking truly impressive. The changes and upgrades aren’t so significant, but still more than minor.
For a start, the front bumper is brand-new and inlets are drastically larger. In the back, rear diffuser is more prominent and fenders are 0.9 inches wider. This all-electric sporty crossover comes with standard 20-inch wheels. However, the customers can select up to 22-inch rims that will be optional.
Interior Gets Minor Updates
Inside, German automaker won’t make so many changes. Thanks to that, regular e-Tron and the 2021 Audi e-Tron S are looking practically the same. The cabin comes with standard electrically-adjustable sport seats and plenty of “S” badges. Optionally, you can buy chairs with thicker bolsters and heated/ventilated seats with leather upholstery.
There will be room for five passengers and comfort will be on a high level. The latest version of the MMI infotainment system is available as well. A pair of touchscreens are looking incredible and the complete interior is user-friendly. Audi will also deliver the latest driver-assistance features such as adaptive cruise control or lane-keep assist.
Audi Delivers More Power
Besides the vehicle’s appearance, this is another huge upgrade. The forthcoming 2021 Audi e-Tron S will provide a boost in terms of performance. The all-electric crossover will gain an additional third motor. As a high-performance version, this model will generate more power than its base variant. Total output is rated at 496 horsepower and 717 lb-ft of torque. That is a significant improvement over the current 402 hp and 490 lb-ft of twisting power.
The S version comes with a pair of motors at the rear axle which allows more torque. Thanks to that, e-Tron S accelerates from 0 to 62 mph in 4.5 seconds. Top speed is rated at 131 mph and the battery pack is unchanged. Adaptive air suspension is standard and drivers can select desirable ride height.
2021 Audi e-Tron S Price and Release Date
The price of the upcoming 2021 Audi e-Tron S is not available yet. However, we are pretty sure the price will start at over $80,000 for this premium all-electric crossover. The German manufacturer will release its newest high-performance model shortly after the Geneva Auto Show this March.
