Audi threw a bomb on the car in Los Angeles, showing the concept of the Audi e-tron GT killed together with Porsche. In other words, Audi unveiled its interpretation of the Porsche Taycan. And it can safely be said that it looks even more impressive.
Four-legged Grand Turismo is the brand's electric sports future. Serial production of the e-tron GT is scheduled for the end of 2020 as the third e-tron model that follows the crossover of the Audi e-tron and the upcoming Audi e-tron Sportback (2019).
As previously announced, Audi plans to introduce 12 models with full power by 2025. The first three will be on the market by the end of 2020, which means that the next 9 models will appear for 5 years, that is. new electric vehicle for 6 months (average).
The Audi e-tron GT, as a four-door coupe, will be the direct competitor of the Tesla Model S. Its problem is that we are still talking in the future, but it is a positive thing that the design of this car is striking.

Its parameters are also not negligible, although the model S has little lead. The Audi e-tron GT has an equal floor architecture that integrates a lithium-ion battery with a capacity of 90 kWh (between the two axes). The autonomous mileage is expected to be over 400 kilometers per test cycle WLTP. Since the comparison with Model S is inevitable, it should be noted that with the 75 kWh battery, the American model currently offers a mileage of 417 km in the ERA test cycle.
The battery charging options are extremely important, where we can see the impact of Porsche. Charging a 800 volt battery can take about 20 minutes (fast charging 80% of the battery capacity).
Another unusual fact lies in Audi's decision to build a body of several different materials: carbon, aluminum and high-strength steel, in order to maximize the weight of the car. Unfortunately, this parameter is not said for a moment.
Audi's decision to cast 1 bicycle on a shaft to achieve a four-wheel drive with the so-called " torque vectoring and powerful regenerative braking. The peak power is 434 kW (590 hp), which should guarantee acceleration to 100 km / h in 3.5 seconds. From 0 to 200 km / h the acceleration will last 12 seconds and the maximum speed is 240 km / h.
Other interesting figures are: 4.96 m long, 1.96 m wide, 1.28 m high and 450 l capacity plus 100 liters under the hood.
