Audi has finally revealed the new e-tron GT electric car. The Audi e-tron GT is offered in two variants: the standard Quattro and the sporty RS trim. The overall design of the new electric sedan is similar to the e-tron concept, which was showcased in 2018.
On the design front, the Audi e-tron GT looks futuristic with a sloping roofline, low bonnet and sculpted lines all over the exterior. Upfront, the electric sedan features a single-frame grille, and body-coloured honeycomb grille pattern hides the numerous sensors utilised by the car’s driver-assist systems. Other design highlights include LED headlights and tail lights.
The e-tron GT is equipped with electric motors on the front and rear axle. Thus, making the car an all-wheel-drive machine. On the standard model, the electric motors deliver a power output of 469bhp and 630Nm of torque. And on the RS variant, the electric motors churn out 590bhp and 830Nm of torque.
The electric car also gets a boost mode with an enhanced power output of 523bhp and 637bhp on the regular variant and RS model, respectively. The boost mode can be activated for a maximum of 2.5 seconds. The e-tron GT Quattro is capable of sprinting from 0-100km/h in 4.1 seconds, and the RS model does the same in just 3.3 seconds. Top-speed is limited to 245km/h on the standard model and 250km/h on the RS variant.
The e-tron GT features a 2-speed transmission coupled with the rear electric motor. The motors draw power from an 85kWh battery pack with an estimated driving range of 488km. The battery pack is compatible with DC fast-charging.
