Audi e-tron GT

Audi e-tron GT

The Audi e-tron GT is a bold-looking electric car. It is expected to be a response to the Porsche Taycan. The production version has not been revealed yet. Some of its eccentricities are expected to be dialed back. The Audi e-tron GT will be introduced in 2021.

Audi plans to simultaneously present the production e-tron GT and its more powerful derivative GT RS. It’s no secret that both electric-powered Audi’s are based precisely on Taycan’s J1 platform with which they largely share proportions as well.

With similar dimensions to the Taycan, including its 114.2-inch wheelbase, the GT’s interior passenger space should be similar. Luggage can be stored in either the front trunk that boasts 4 cubic feet of volume or in the 16 cubes of space behind the rear seats.

Wide and low, the e-tron GT will fill the space between Audi’s A5 Sportback and A7 Sportback with its measurements. Batteries with a capacity of 90 kWh should provide it with at least 400 kilometers of autonomy, and the charging system (800V) will provide 80 percent of the battery capacity in just 20 minutes.

The e-tron GT looks unique and stands out on the street. This includes two separate electric motors that produce a combined 590 horsepower and provide all-wheel drive. In typical Audi fashion, the Quattro system can distribute power to individual wheels for sharper handling and improved traction. The company claims the e-tron GT will be able to hit 60 mph in about 3.5 seconds. A complex cooling method means its battery pack can handle repeated runs without compromising acceleration.
