After a rather lengthy teaser campaign during which Audi allowed certain journos to check out the e-tron GT first-hand, Ingolstadt is finally ready to pull the covers off their interpretation of a sports electric sedan.
The four-door coupe will premiere today, at 1:00 p.m. ET (7:00 p.m. CET), and if you want to watch the live presentation, then you have come to the right place, with the video shared below.
Previewed by the e-tron GT Concept at the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show, the 2022 e-tron GT is essentially a sister model to the Porsche Taycan being derived from the same building blocks. Even with the trick skin wrap, it’s easy to tell that the e-tron is a sexy looking EV that will no doubt draw attention to itself on the road. It also has a stylish cockpit, bathed in fine materials and is equipped with all the latest technology gea.
Audi will launch two different versions of the e-Tron GT, including an RS model, which will sit at the top of the range, becoming the brand’s first EV to wear the performance moniker. It will have a dual-motor set-up, with 637 HP (646 PS / 475 kW) on OverBoost, and 612 lb-ft (830 Nm) of torque, all-wheel drive with torque vectoring, all-wheel steering, and uprated brakes. The 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) acceleration will reportedly take less than 3.5 seconds, while top speed will be limited to 155 mph (250 km/h).
The automaker has not revealed the driving range yet, but we expect a WLTP highway range rating of 250 miles (~400 km) or more with equivalent charging times to the Porsche Taycan than can achieve a 100% charge in around nine hours, or a quick charge that’s good for about 62 miles (100 k) in as fast as 5 minutes.
