Audi shows its sporty electric car concept

As part of a raft of Volkswagen Group electric headliners at the Shanghai Auto Show, Audi has its e-tron Gran Turismo Sportback, writes Trish Whelan.

With a 429hp electric motor under its svelte sheet metal, the car previews a production model that will appear in 2019.

Prior to that, the brand plans to roll out its first electric car in 2018, known at the moment as the Audi e-tron and forecast by the company to have a 500km+ range.

The Sportback concept has three electric motors, one on the front axle and two on the rear. A 4.5s sprint capability to 100km/h is expected.
