Audi has revealed the e-tron GT, a futuristic concept that previews a flagship electric fastback sedan set for production in 2020.
It measures 4960mm long, 1960mm wide and 1380mm tall, and is constructed from a mix of carbon-fibre, aluminium and high-strength steel.
Visually, the e-tron GT looks like a combination of the A7 Sportback and e-tron quattro SUV. Up front, it gets the latter model’s face, with huge brake cooling ducts and aggressive grille strakes. At the rear, the GT is curvy and rounded (unlike the A5 and A7), however the lower diffuser still retains some bold, straight lines.
It’s powered by two electric motors and a 90kWh battery, which work together to deliver 434kW. The 0-100km/h dash is covered in 3.5 seconds, towards a limited top speed of 240km/h. Range is rated at 400km on the new WLTP test cycle, and it can gain 320km of range in just 20 minutes via an 800-volt charging system.
Inside, the GT’s cabin is centred around two touchscreens – the top one does infotainment, while the lower one controls air conditioning. In front of the driver there’s a fully-digital instrument cluster, while the rest of the interior is trimmed in a number of sustainable materials that do not contain animal products. Practicality wise, there’s a 100 litre frunk and a 450 litre boot, which combine to create 550 litres of luggage space.
The Audi e-tron GT will be shown at the LA auto show. A production version with a similar appearance will go on sale in 2020.
