11 March, 2019 | The next electric Audi is being launched: the Audi e-tron GT, which follows in the footsteps of the Audi e-tron SUV and the Audi e-tron Sportback slated for 2019.
Flat, wide and with a long wheelbase – those are the proportions of a classic Gran Turismo. And the Audi e-tron GT concept reflects these with its 4.96-metre length, 1.96-metre width and 1.38-metre height. The lightweight body of the four-door coupé is manufactured using a multi-material construction. The design and character are packed full of unmistakable Audi DNA.
Sustainable contemporary feel
In the interior, the Audi e-tron GT concept provides a large amount of everyday usability, coupled with a superb quality feel. With the concept car, the designers have deliberately gone for the consistent use of sustainable materials – a clear statement of contemporary automotive design. Animal-based products are not used at all: the Audi e-tron GT concept comes with a vegan interior.
Performance and range
434 kilowatts (590 metric horsepower) of system power – that is an impressive figure for the potential of the all-electric drive. Separate electric motors are fitted to the front and rear axles. They put down the torque onto the road via all four driven wheels – the new Audi e-tron GT concept is also a genuine quattro. An electric quattro to be precise since there is no mechanical link between the front and rear axle. The electronic control system coordinates the drive between the axles as well as between left and right wheels. That means optimum traction and just the desired amount of slip.
In the future, the vehicle should accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in around 3.5 seconds before going on to 200 km/h in just over 12 seconds. The top speed is regulated at 240 km/h to maximise the range.
