Audi has announced the e-tron GT, an electrically powered premium sedan based on the Porsche Taycan platform. The e-tron GT concept was unveiled back in 2018, so the exterior of the sedan was not a mystery, but now the automaker has revealed the technical specifications and retail value of the new product.
There will be two versions of the car on the market, along with the standard e-tron GT model there will be a more powerful version of the e-tron RS. The basic version develops a power of 350 kW (approximately 470 horsepower), and in Overboost mode this figure rises to 522 horsepower. Acceleration to 100 km / h takes 4.1 seconds, and the top speed is 245 km / h. The more powerful version of the e-tron RS develops up to 440 kW of power (about 590 horsepower), in Overboost mode – 636 horsepower. You can accelerate to 100 km / h in 3.3 seconds, and the maximum speed is 250 km / h.
Both models achieve this performance thanks to a twin-engine, all-wheel drive powerplant that is powered by a battery with an available capacity of 85 kWh (total battery capacity is 93 kWh). According to the manufacturer, in just five minutes of charging, you can restore energy in an amount sufficient to overcome 100 km. As for the power reserve, then, according to the manufacturer, the new e-tron is able to cover “more than 488 km” without recharging.
The interior of each of the presented versions houses two displays: a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, as well as a 10.1-inch touch screen, which is the basis of the infotainment system.
According to reports, the e-tron GT will hit the European market this spring, starting at € 99,800 for the base model and € 138,200 for the e-tron RS. Audi’s new electric vehicle will hit the US market later this year at prices starting at $ 99,900 for the standard version and from $ 139,000 for the more powerful version. In addition, buyers will have the opportunity to order additional options that can significantly increase the price of a car.
