While Audi has only announced updates for the European 2020 e-tron, the company said those changes will eventually make their way to our market. That means the American version will have an updated battery pack that provides more driving range than it currently does. It also means we're getting the e-tron Sportback that features a fastback roofline.

Pros
Remarkably silent on the go,
fancy and functional interior,
serene ride quality.

Cons
Less range than rivals,
less unique than rivals,
limited energy regeneration options.
