On February 9, Audi will present its first 100% electric sedan, the Audi e-tron GT. Marc Lichte, director of Audi Conception is delighted with this news.
“ The world premiere is a magical moment “. More than 2 years after the creation of the Audi e-tron GT concept, the German brand will launch its model on February 9, 2021.
” The presentation of a new car is the culmination of a development process that usually takes four years. It’s a long road that involves a lot of work, a lot of discussion, and sometimes difficult decisions. “.
590 horsepower under the hood
With its two electric motors this Audi e-tron GT produces a combined power of 590 horsepower. What offers first-class performance: the Audi e-tron GT cuts down from 0 to 100 km / h in 3.5 seconds.
This sports car is moreover quite aptly named gran turismo: ” GT models differ from pure sports cars in that they offer greater comfort and a larger cabin. As a fully electric gran turismo, the e-tron GT reinterprets this balance by not reducing performance to power but by attributing special creativity to efficiency. », Explained the director of Audi Conception.
In terms of autonomy, do not expect miracles. The e-tron GT will be able to cover only 400 km with a 93 kWh battery fully charged. The only good news is that Audi has claimed that its 800-volt charging system will reach 80% charge in just 20 minutes.
For the moment the price of the e-tron GT has not been confirmed. We will therefore have to wait for the presentation of the model in early February.
