Audi E-Tron is among the car Audi is testing as the RS3 Sedan is not the only the upcoming sedan Audi is testing these days at the Nurburgring.
Audi E-Tron GT Review and spy Photos
Spy cameras have however spotted another four-door car and that is the Audi E-Tron GT. The Audi E-Tron GT is lacking the good sound of the inline-five turbocharged engine of a normal high-performance compact sedan. It doesn’t have a combustion engine at all as the E-Tron is a total EV related to the Porsche Taycan.
Meanwhile, Audi refuses to take off some of the car’s camouflage. However, the disguise can’t keep the fact the zero-emissions sedan will remain extremely faithful to the namesake concept unveiled two years ago hidden. It now has bigger mirrors and traditional door handles. And the remaining part of it appears to be a spitting image of the car which is exhibited at the 2018 Los Angeles Auto show. Probably, there are few other changes from the concept to production that are hiding underneath the camouflage.
E-Tron GT Debut
The Four-door car (E-Tron GT) is however still set to debut before the end of this year. Even with the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic that interferes with the company’s plans. The concept however had dual electric motors, all-wheel-drive, and a battery pack of 90 kWh.
This model is unlikely to stray too far away from the 2018 version that packed a combined output of 582 horsepower. And is good for a 0 – 62 mph in 3.5 seconds and 0 – 124 mph run in over 12 seconds. It has a maximum range of over 249 miles per WLTP, and it topped out out the 149 mph.
Meanwhile, we are expecting Audi to sell several versions of the Audi E-Tron GT to mirror the Taycan lineup which is offered by Porsche. Given the two brands underneath the VW Group’s umbrella, it should undercut its Stuttgart sister model. However, using this logic, the base trim should be cheaper compared to the $103,800 Porsche Taycan 4S. And the price could even drop more, considering how there’s a rear-wheel-drive Taycan in China with a single motor.
As the Los Angeles Auto Show has been rescheduled for next May, It’s unclear when and where the production-ready Audi E-Tron GT will debut. Audi could also unveil the electric sedan in an online-only event. Just as many automakers have been unveiling their cars online due to the troubles of the coronavirus Pandemic.
