Audi has introduced the special look for the 2022 Sportback e-tron S line black edition, that highlights the sporty nature of the fully electric Audi e-tron models. It builds on the S line exterior, which already features striking accents in the front, sides and rear. For the black edition model, the Single frame as well as the four rings, the side mirror casings and the e-tron badges are all in black. Audi Sport supplies the 21” wheels, also in black, contrasted by the orange brake calipers. The back seat has dark tinted windows, and the new, exclusive metallic finish color options Chronos gray, Glacier white and Mythos black are available. LED lights on the underside of the doors project the words “e-tron black edition” onto the street when the door is opened.
The package expands on the S line interior. The contrast stitching of the black sport seats (standard) and the armrests and seat belts stand out in orange. The center section of the seats and inlays of the doors are of the new Dinamica material – a breathable microfiber that is made of 45 percent recycled polyester such as PET bottles. For the truly discerning, fine Valcona leather is also available. The instrument panel is upholstered in leatherette with decorative carbon inlays.
The new S line black edition is available for the Audi e-tron and the Audi e-tron Sportback in both motorization levels. The Audi e-tron S line black edition 50 quattro, whose two e-machines have an output of 230 kW (313 PS), is listed at 79,350 euros. The Audi e-tron S line black edition 55 quattro with 300 kW (408 PS) starts at 91,750 euros. The regular e-tron Sportback sells for $89,000 CDN and the release date for the special black edition has yet to be announced for North America.
Also announced, Audi and Sonos have launched a new premium audio partnership for the Audi Q4 e-tron. The partnership will see a Sonos-tuned premium sound experience featured in the Q4 e-tron and further models including the A1, Q2 and Q3.
This marks Sonos’ first partnership in the automotive space, demonstrating the company’s commitment to empowering customers to easily enjoy great sound wherever they go.
“Our ambition is to be the world’s leading sound experience company. That means giving listeners the ability to experience great sound wherever they go,” said Patrick Spence, CEO Sonos. “We’ve found in Audi a partner that shares our vision and approach – a company that values innovation and design in the same way Sonos does. We are proud to introduce this Sonos-tuned premium sound experience in the cabin of the Q4 e-tron.“
