- Sports car performance and four-wheel drive traction
- Shares underpinnings with the Porsche Taycan
- Will feature a 249-mile range and 800v fast-charging capability
You're looking at the Audi E-Tron GT concept, the second all-electric model revealed by Ingolstadt, and a twin to the forthcoming Porsche Taycan EV. And you can ignore its concept moniker, too; Parkers understands this car is very close to a production version that'll come in 2020.
E-Tron GT specs and performance
Thanks to the underpinnings it shares with the Porsche Taycan, the Audi E-Tron GT boasts some Tesla-worrying performance. Two electric motors generate a total of 590hp, while 0-62mph should take around 3.5 seconds and 0-124mph in just over 12 seconds.
A 249-mile range and limited top speed of 149mph round things off. Just like the e-Tron SUV before it, the E-Tron GT also features Quattro all-wheel-drive, with torque vectoring to best control the power.
E-Tron GT range: how far can it travel per charge?
Audi says the new E-Tron GT will feature a 249-mile range, and 800v fast charging means you can get 80% of that in just 20 minutes.
Just under 200 miles in 20 minutes is certainly impressive. What's more, we're told when order books finally open, customers will be able to spec more convenient 11kW wireless charging.
Shape and size
The E-Tron GT features Audi's new, electric design language, which debuted in the E-Tron SUV, placed onto an A7 style body. But at 4.96m long, 1.96m wide and 1.38m high, it's both lower and slightly wider than Audi's conventional tourer.
Audi has certainly made its mark on this platform, and although it features the same roofline as the Taycan, the E-Tron GT certainly looks like an Audi.
From an inverted singleframe grille at the front – a new signature of the firm's EVs – to A8-style full-width lights at the rear, the E-Tron GT is a mixture of E-Tron SUV and A7 Sportback throughout.
E-Tron GT Interior
If you've seen the inside of the new A8, or A7 the E-Tron GT cabin will look somewhat familiar.
Touchscreens are in, and physical controls are out – and we're told that the interior is closer to production than any 'concept' Audi has been previously.
E-Tron GT Price
Being a concept car, there's no price for the E-Tron GT, but we can speculate on the RRP of the production car – particularly as we know how much the Taycan will cost.
Porsche says the Taycan will sit below the Panamera in its range, so expect the E-Tron GT to cost around the £70,000 - £80,000 region.
