Electric, sporty and modern: the Audi e-tron GT
Avec son e-tron GT, Audi démontre à quel point la mobilité électrique sera fascinante. Le coupé quatre portes combine un design suscitant des émotions, un système d’entraînement puissant et une maniabilité dynamique. Il s’agit du début d’une nouvelle ère, celle du véhicule grand tourisme du futur.
It's an Audi like the world has never seen before: with the e-tron GT, the brand unveils its plans to shape the fascinating and emotionally rich future of mobility. The two grand touring models with a 100% electric engine, the e-tron GT quattro (combined energy consumption: 21.6-19.9 (WLTP), 19.6-18.8 (NEDC); combined CO2 emissions: 0 g/km) and the RS e-tron GT (combined energy consumption: 22.5-20.6 (WLTP), 20.2-19.3 (NEDC); combined CO2 emissions: 0 g/km), will be launched simultaneously on the market in February 2021. They are both powerful, fast, dynamic and have zero local emissions. The sum of these qualities forms a strong character, which reinterprets the idea of great tourism.
The exterior of the Audi e-tron GT is a dynamic work of art. Every surface and every line is harmonious, from the optionally available headlights with laser illumination to the large diffuser in the rear. Combined, all the details form a sculpture that seems to be shaped by the wind. The body line is extremely aerodynamic and the coefficient of drag is just 0.24. The interior also corresponds to the design of a classic grand touring car: the front passenger and driver seats are installed in a sporty low position and are separated from each other by a wide centre console. The rear seats offer sufficient space, even for adults. The progressive elegance of the interior design accentuates the modern character of the vehicle.
A grand touring car is a sporty touring vehicle with excellent dynamic handling, which drives off with confidence. The Audi e-tron GT shares this character. Depending on the model, the power of the electric motors is 350 kW (476 hp) or 440 kW (598 hp), depending on the model, allowing dynamic acceleration. Equally important, the range of up to 487 km (according to the WLTP standard) is possible thanks to the battery and its net capacity of 85 kWh. Its 800-volt technology allows DC recharging with a maximum power of 270 kW. The suspension is based on a balance between dynamism and comfort thanks to technologies such as Audi drive select, four-wheel steering, controlled damping, three-chamber air suspension, electric all-wheel drive and differential lock on the rear axle. Wheel size can be up to 21 inches and the brake discs, which are optionally available in ceramic and carbon fibre, have a maximum diameter of 420 mm.
As with all Audi models, the e-tron GT is fully connected. The infotainment, Audi connect online services and driver assistance systems are state-of-the-art. This dynamic work of art had to resound proudly, which is why Audi has composed a unique sound for the e-tron GT, which is powerful and modern, just like that of a real Audi.
The e-tron GT quattro will be available from 102,900 euros and the RS e-tron GT from 143,200 euros.
