To compete with Porsche Taycan, Tesla Model S., Audi introduced the Audi e-tron GT. This is the German automaker’s first all-electric sedan, with a power of 590 hp and 830 Nm of torque
Audi will launch the e-tron GT on February 9, as confirmed by Audi Design Director Marc Lichte. After about three years of waiting, the new Audi electric sedan was launched. The concept of this car was introduced at the Los Angeles Auto Show 2018.
In addition, Audi also announced a test run of the e-tron GT with camouflage. On the whole, the e-tron GT is not much different from the concept. Audi’s head of design does not mention the car’s performance.
The Audi e-tron GT is built on the same J1 platform as Porsche Taycan. Almost certainly the e-tron GT also has a configuration of 2 electric motors, divided equally by 2 axes similar to Taycan.
Previous reports have indicated that the e-tron GT has a power of 590 hp and 830 Nm of torque. Capacity can be raised to 637 hp in overboost mode. This power is comparable to that of Taycan Turbo. The Porsche sedan has a capacity of 617 hp and 850 Nm of torque.
With this power, the e-tron GT can accelerate from 0-100 km / h in 3.5 seconds, hitting 200 km / h in 12 seconds. The maximum speed of this electric vehicle is limited to 240 km / h to balance the range.
The e-tron GT’s battery pack is also shared from Taycan, which is an 83.7 kWh lithium-ion offering a range of about 400 km. The car comes with a 350 kW fast charger, which helps the car charge from 0% to 80% in just 22.5 minutes.
Overall, the e-tron GT has the same coupe-hybrid sedan styling as the A7 Sportback. In the concept, the Audi e-tron GT has dimensions of length x width x height of 4,960 x 1,960 x 1,380 (mm) respectively and a wheelbase of 2,900 mm.
The front end features a “fake” hexagonal grille similar to the concept, but the lines are made less aggressive. The matrix LED system is designed with lightning bolt patterns and sporty front bumpers. At the rear, the car has LED taillights stretching.
