The e-tron GT produces a combined 469 horsepower and 464 lb-ft of torque (522 hp and 472 lb-ft with overboost). The quattro all-wheel-drive system is standard. A two-speed transmission is connected to the rear motor with a short-ratio first gear for the best possible acceleration. This electric AWD system distributes power to all four wheels, though in efficiency mode, FWD is activated. This system is also capable of making instant decisions based on road conditions, such as slippery surfaces and fast cornering. Audi says the system makes these changes about five times faster than the mechanical quattro system. A three-chamber air system is also standard.
Expect a 0-60 mph time of 3.9 seconds and a top speed of 152 mph. When Launch Control is activated, up to 523 hp is available.
The lithium-ion 93.4-kWh battery is located between the front/rear axles, making for near-perfect weight distribution. The battery utilizes an 800-volt system for better charging times. When using the included 11 kW AC charger, owners can fully recharge their vehicles overnight. A DC fast charger can provide 62 miles of range in just five minutes. Total weight comes to 5,060 pounds and Audi estimates a 238-mile range.
