The e-tron GT: Here Comes the First 100% Electric Car from Audi
Audi presents its new e-tron GT, an all-electric performance car.
The prototype of the new e-tron GT was unveiled at the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show. Then the wait set in - it took almost two and a half years to see the production model, which, in the end, is pretty faithful to the concept. The Audi e-tron GT, an electric performance car that is very closely related to the Porsche Taycan, will arrive in Canada this summer and will be offered in two versions.
Regular or RS
The RS e-tron GT gets the same front motor as the entry-level e-tron GT, but has a more powerful rear motor capable of producing 450 horsepower. Together, the front and rear units of the RS e-tron GT produce a net power output of 590 hp, and up to 637 hp for 2.5 seconds with the launch control function. The total torque of the system is 612 pound-feet of torque. As a result, the RS e-tron GT can reach 100 km/h in 3.4 seconds.
The regular e-tron GT's front motor produces 235 hp, with the rear engine delivering 429 hp; combined net power is 469 hp, and up to 522 hp for 2.5 seconds with the launch control. Torque is 464 lb-ft of torque (472 with the launch control). The 0-100 km/h is possible just over 4 seconds.
