  • Dec 03, 2018

ABU DHABI: After much teasing, Audi has finally unveiled a brand new electronic vehicle, the e-tron GT Concept, at the ongoing LA Auto Show. It comes in just two months after showcasing of the brand's first electric car, the e-tron SUV. This e-tron GT Concept is an electric sedan, which shares the battery platform and drivetrain with the Taycan, the first EV from Porsche.

The Audi e-tron GT Concept rides on 22-inch wheels and has a 90kWh battery that acts as a power provider. The battery powers two electric motors placed on each axle. The motors offer torque vectoring and Quattro traction.

The overall system is capable of churning out a maximum of 590 bhp power. The EV can speed up from 0 to 100 kmph in just 3.5 seconds. According to the Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicle Test Procedure (WLTP) standards, the system offers a range of 402 kilometres in one go. The battery supports 800V charging and can be refilled up to 80 per cent in just 20 minutes.

The Audi e-tron GT Concept uses Brake energy recuperation, which handles up to 90 per cent of the brakes. It comes with a boot space of 450-litre and there is also a 100-litre area under the bonnet.

Inside the EV, a vegan interior is on offer. There is synthetic leather upholstery, along with a microfibre headlining, which gives a very premium touch. The automaker claimed that the carpets are made from the fishing nets after being recycled.

The Audi e-tron GT is in the concept form at the moment and it looks like the production version will not be an affordable one. The production of the EV will start in the last quarter of 2020. It will join the e-tron SUV and the e-tron Sportback crossover, which are to be launched in the first and second half of 2019, respectively. The deliveries of this Audi e-tron GT will start from early 2021.
