The two motors driving the wheels, along with the 880-pound lithium ion battery, give the car 204 horsepower and 1,955 pound-feet of torque, getting the e-tron to 60 mph in 5.1 seconds. The 45 kilowatt-hour battery also gives the car a range of 155 miles.Not too shabby.
The original e-tron had 4 motors, one in each wheel, and substantial torque. Still, this isn't bad. If I had to guess, I would say the cost of the battery pack is what is holding them back.
