|Audi has unveiled its new electric supercar concept of the future. The fully electric vehicle from Audi has set new standards for design and performance. |
The exterior is marked by a clean, graceful surfacing and a distinctive light strip in a flowing design along the roof. A large display, aluminum controls, and a holographic user interface give this high-end luxury car a whole new sensory experience.
How Much Power Does the New Audi E-Tron GT produce?
A front motor and a rear motor combine for a total system output of 469 hp on the standard model. The over-boost function temporarily increases output to 522 hp. Torque is 464 lb-ft with over-boost or 472 lb-ft without.
If you choose the RS model, you’ll get even better performance thanks to a more powerful rear motor. With over boost, combined output rises to 590 hp or 637 hp. Torque is measured at 612 lb-ft.
The E-Tron GT has a two-speed transmission, as opposed to the typical one-speed transmission found on electric vehicles. Audi claims that the transmission will provide on-demand acceleration and will use a taller second gear for highway cruising.
Audi E-Tron GT Top Speed
The E-Tron GT has a top speed of 152 mph. In our testing, the grand tourer accelerated from 0 to 60 mph in 3.6 seconds. The more powerful RS model can reach 155 mph and sprint to 60 mph in 2.9 seconds, according to MT testing.
Battery and Range
The grand tourer’s battery can be charged from 5 to 80 percent in just over 22 minutes using a DC fast charger. Although official EPA range data is not yet available, Audi estimates that the E-Tron GT will travel 238 miles on a single charge and the RS model will travel 232 miles.
If these figures are correct, the GT won’t be able to compete with the Tesla Model S’s range. This sedan is expected to travel 412 miles with a dual-motor configuration and between 390 and 520 miles with a tri-motor configuration.
The e-Tron GT is lower and wider than the Audi A7, a car with a large footprint. The length of this new EV is 196.4 inches, the wheelbase is 114.2 inches, and the width is either 77.3 inches without the mirrors or 84.9 inches with them.
The maximum height is only 55 inches. The e-Tron GT, like many EVs, is bulky. The curb weight of 5,060 pounds reflects this. Due to its single-motor configuration, the base Porsche Taycan weighs nearly 500 lbs less.
Technology and Interior
The infotainment system is controlled by a 10.1-inch touchscreen display in the center of the dashboard. A 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster is also included with the model.
A leather-free interior is standard, with recycled and faux suede materials used instead. Upholstery in Nappa leather is available. The RS E-Tron GT, an Audi first, will come standard with a lightweight carbon fiber reinforced plastic roof.
What Other E-Tron Models Are There?
For the 2019 model year, the original E-Tron SUV made its debut. Audi later released the E-Tron Sportback, a fastback coupe-like version of the SUV. Audi recently debuted the Q4 E-Tron and Q4 Sportback E-Tron.
How Much Is the Electric Audi E-Tron GT Going to Cost?
The base E-Tron GT starts at $100,995. (including the destination charge). Buyers who choose the RS model can expect to pay significantly more: $140,995. These prices do not include a potential $7,500 federal tax credit or any state incentives.
