Audi will showcase the new e-tron Sportback and RS Q8 at 2019 LA Autoshow.

Audi is pressing ahead with its electrification initiative. At the Los Angeles Auto Show the brand with the four rings will be showcasing the series-production version of its Audi e-tron Sportback, which combines the elegance of a large coupé with the progressive character of a fully electric vehicle.

The e-tron Sportback features innovative Digital Matrix headlights – a first for a series-production vehicle. These can light the way in front of the car with unprecedented precision through the use of of around one million micromirrors. The e-tron Sportback shares its powertrain with the Audi e-tron SUV and will be built at the same production location in Brussels..

Audi Sport GmbH will be presenting another world premiere in Los Angeles. The new RS Q8 – the top model in the Q product line – will be appearing for the first time, offering epic performance courtesy of an eight-cylinder twin-turbo TFSI, but also the significant economy-boosting benefits afforded by cylinder deactivation technology and mild hybrid (MHEV) drive based on a 48-volt main electrical system. With its belt alternator starter, the RS Q8 can recover up to 12 kW of power to its lithium-ion battery. As a result, it can “glide” for up to 40 seconds with the engine switched off at speeds of between 34 and 99mph.
