2025 Audi RS e-tron GT Performance – the most powerful Audi ever

Four years ago Audi launched a battery electric car Audi e-tron GT, and a year later a more sporty RS version arrived on the market. Now is the time for more powerful refreshed editions and the new RS Performance flagship.

First of all, the Audi e-tron GT is now known as the S e-tron GT. It is powered by two electric motors with a total power of 680 hp (507 kW), which is more than the current RS e-tron GT. Also, the new RS e-tron GT is more powerful than its predecessor and now has 857 hp (639 kW), while the new flagship RS e-tron GT Performance is at the top of the range and the most powerful Audi ever with 925 hp (690 kW). This had a significant impact on acceleration, so now the S e-tron GT reaches 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 3.4 seconds (0.1 second faster than the current RS version) with a top speed of 245 km/h ( 152 mph). The RS e-tron GT accelerates to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 2.8 seconds with a top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph), while the RS e-tron GT Performance reaches 100 km/h in 2.5 seconds .

In order to withstand the increase in power, Audi‘s engineers improved the air suspension as well as the optional active suspension, new brakes with steel discs were installed in the S e-tron GT, while the RS models have discs coated with tungsten carbide. Customers can also choose carbon-ceramic discs and 10-piston front brake calipers (optional).

All versions are equipped with a 97 kWh battery that allows a range of 609 km on a single battery charge in ideal conditions. The maximum charging speed has been increased from 270 to 320 kW, which means that the battery can be charged from 10 to 80 percent in just 18 minutes, while a ten-minute charge is enough for a range of 280 km. The battery improvements also mean that it can maintain a charging speed of more than 280 kWh for longer than the old model. Also, the battery can be cooled or heated for faster charging.

The cabin has also undergone certain changes. New seats, a new steering wheel and an optional panoramic glass roof, which can become opaque with the simple push of a button, have been installed. Audi’s virtual cockpit has also been upgraded, and there’s a new mix of materials including wood accents, Dinamica microfibre and optional 18-way adjustable seats.

When it comes to price, the S e-tron GT costs 126,000 euros, while the RS e-tron GT is slightly more expensive and costs 147,500 euros. For the most powerful Audi ever, the RS e-tron GT Performance, it is necessary to allocate 160,500 euros.

Redesigned Audi e-tron GT

In response to the Porsche Taycan, in 2021 Audi introduced a bold looking car, the Audi e-tron GT. It is an all-electric car that will soon receive its redesigned edition. However, before the official premiere of the new e-tron GT, Audi revealed a prototype of this model.

A first look reveals minor design changes compared to the current generation. These include a new front bumper with redesigned intakes, a new front fascia, and a redesigned rear diffuser. The car shown features a new set of aerodynamically optimized rims in black, and it has been announced that it will also be equipped with a new active suspension with hydraulic actuators. This will enable new adjustment options, which will give the driver a wider range of driving modes and settings, and ultimately further increase the comfort and driving dynamics of the electric model.

The biggest changes will be under the hood. At the top of the range of the new e-tron GT will be the RS Performance version, which will have more than 646 hp (482 kW). This is the same power that the current RS e-tron GT has, but still less than the competitor Porsche Taycan Turbo S, which has 952 hp (710 kW).

Audi hasn’t revealed much about the mechanical and technological improvements that come with the redesigned edition. However, if we look at the recently updated Porsche Taycan, the new e-tron GT has more powerful electric motors, faster charging up to 320 kW instead of up to 270 kW, and there is talk of a battery larger than 105 kWh, which would mean a longer range. As a reminder, the current generation is equipped with a 93.4 kWh battery.

Although Audi hasn’t announced when the new e-tron GT will premiere, it’s certain that we won’t have to wait long.
