Following in the footsteps of the Audi E-Tron SUV, the Audi E-Tron Sportback Concept is a sleek, muscular take on an all-electric vehicle. It's powered by one electric motor on the front axle, two on the rear, and a low-mounted battery pack. The system is capable of delivering 370 kW, or roughly 500 hp, good for a 0-62 time of 4.5 seconds and range over 300 miles. It's similar in size to the A7, with 23-inch wheels, digitally-controlled Matrix LED headlights and a futuristic interior that uses screens to replace everything from gauges and controls to the exterior mirrors. Unlike most forward-thinking concepts, this one's already slated for production, with an expected introduction in 2019.
Mercedes' recent string of compact vehicles has led to record sales. The Mercedes-Benz Concept A Sedan is our first look at what the next generation might look like. Its exterior design is notable for its reduction in lines and gaps, Panamericana grille, oversized lower air inlet, 20-inch alloy wheels, and headlamps with a unique grid-like structure made using UV paint, so they glow different colors depending on the light selected. Inside, passengers can enjoy the added room afforded by the offset greenhouse and the views offered by the panoramic glass roof.
