Audi e-tron GT is going to be the second all-electric offering from Audi, after the launch of the e-tron and e-tron Sportback. Audi e-tron GT bookings are now open and launch is slated for this month-end. Audi is expected to launch the e-tron in the GT Sportback trim whereas the RS model could be launched at a later date.
Audi e-tron GT - Design and Interiors
Audi has taken a very radical design approach even though it’s a Porsche Taycan underneath. The large Audi grille is blacked out and is flanked by slim LED headlights. On to the side, it gets large haunches and character lines and the roof tapers off to the back, complimenting the Sportback design. The rear profile sports the connected taillight design and accentuated bumpers. On the inside, the quality levels are really high and three screens are on offer. The virtual cockpit sports various drive mode layouts whereas the twin touchscreens replace the old MMI-based rotary controls.
Audi e-tron GT - Drivetrain and Performance
Audi e-tron GT comes with a dual motor setup as standard. It comes packed with an 84 kWh battery pack that power all four wheels. The twin electric motors combined, produce 522bhp and 640 Nm of torque, in boost mode. On a single charge, the e-tron GT is capable of munching up to 488 km whereas it can also sprint from nought to 100 km/h in 4.1 seconds. The e-tron GT weighs over 2.2 tonnes and the acceleration is still blistering. Audi India is also expected to offer various warranty and service packages with the e-tron GT.
Audi e-tron Gt Bookings Open, Launch Date
Audi India has announced the bookings for the e-tron and we expect Audi to launch the e-tron later this month. The e-tron GT is a full-blown electric Sportback sedan and it will be priced north of INR 1.5 crore. It will be the one of its kind until Porsche launches the Taycan in the Indian market that will be even more expensive. Audi is also expanding its charging infrastructure as more EV launches are slated for the next year.
