2021 Audi E-Tron S spy shots and video

Audi launched its first volume EV last year in the form of the 2019 E-Tron SUV, which is already winning plenty of accolades.

Now the automaker is hard at work developing a faster, performance-oriented version that will arrive next year, meaning we’ll likely see it as a 2021 model.

Multiple E-Tron prototypes were recently spotted at the Nürburgring and on some of the German racetrack’s surrounding roads. They may look like standard E-Trons but if you peer a little closer you’ll notice some changes that hint at these being for a performance offering.
