Audi finally releases its E-Tron GT concept, a four-door full electric coupe on Wednesday during the press days of the LA Auto Show after so much teasers. A new car added to its E-Tron lineup, looks more like audi a7.
According to engadget, The four-door all-wheel-drive GT has 590 horsepower and can do zero to 60 in 3.5 seconds via its two motors and has an estimated range of over 248 miles from a 90kWh battery that resides under the seating area. But instead of the typical flat pack, the battery is thicker under the seating area and thinner where you put your feet.
Audi claims that it can charge from 0 to 80% in just 20 minutes and supports fast charging up to 800 volts. There are charge ports on either side of the bonnet so no matter how you park, you're not dragging a charger cable across the front of the car. Plus, the E-Tron supports charging via both ports at the same time, which would make your car ready sooner.
The E-Tron GT can also be charged via contactless inductive charging. That's slower than using a cable (or cables) and is meant for overnight charges. But like the BMW inductive charging system, you won'st have to plug the car in at night. Just park it over the pad.
And now lets talk about the one of most impressive thing on the vehicle, Its design, which is capable of dragging anyone to dealership, as the vehicle has some touches from Porsche . The Audi GT e-tron will be built on the Porsche Taycan platform. The Taycan, formerly known as Mission E, is an-electric sports car that Porsche plans to put into series production in 2019.
Not only it's fully electric but It has vegan interior, means the synthetic leather and fabric used on the seat cushions, armrests and center console are made up from recycled fibers, Which makes it more eco-friendly . However Audi doesn’t indicate whether a production version will off a vegan interior.
As the Audi E-Tron GT set to go into production in late 2020, And you will have to wait until 2021, which means car enthusiast has to wait for almost two year to get hands-on this fully electric Audi.
