The Audi e-tron GT was spotted before its official debut!
Audi's brilliant e-tron GT was recently spotted on a test drive and we have been blessed with a series of spy shots that show off this electrified beast before its official reveal.
From what we can see from these photos, the e-tron GT will carry over the same lines as the concept car that was first seen in Los Angeles back in 2018.
Like most modern Audis, the e-tron will carry a very sophisticated design language that is both elegant and dynamic. Audi is claiming 590 horsepower that will be sent to all four wheels through a variant of Audi's Quattro all-wheel-drive system. Inside the e-tron GT, Audi plans on using sustainable materials including "deep-pile floor carpet made with Econyl yarn, a recycled fiber made from used fishing nets."
Audi is claiming that the e-tron GT will be able to get from zero to 60 in 3.5 seconds, which would put it in the same company as the Tesla Model S, Tesla Model Y, and slightly ahead of the Porsche Taycan 4S. Audi is also claiming a range of around 250 miles, which is right in the sweet spot of what most non-Tesla manufacturers are claiming. I'd imagine Audi's 8-year/100,000 mile battery warranty will carry over from the e-tron SUV as well.
All of this creates what is effectively an all-electric version of the A7, which I am already a huge fan of. If there is any company that should be capable of blending sportiness, luxury amenities, and state of the art technology, it's Audi. If the production e-tron GT looks anything like the concept does, I will be very impressed with this addition to the slowly growing list of big electric sedans.
Based on the current conditions of the planet, its anyone's guess as to when the e-tron GT will actually be unveiled to the public, but I will be counting the days.
What do think of the e-tron GT? Will it be able to outperform the Model S? Will it be a more cost effective alternative to the Porsche Taycan? Should they make an e-tron Avant? Comment Below!
