After some wholesome automotive foreplay, Audi lastly took the wraps off its new e-tron GT Concept at the LA Auto Present. Providing the best parts of the model’s design language, the vehicle previews a manufacturing mannequin that’s scheduled to seem late in 2020, in addition to Porsche’s upcoming Taycan EV — which can share the Audi’s drivetrain and platform.

Comparatively good-looking, in the event you like Audi sedans and outsized grilles on electric automobiles, the GT avoids getting overly formidable with the futuristic styling we see on a variety of mainstream EVs. We’d name this “extraordinarily trendy” quite than some really visionary design you’d anticipate from an idea car. It’s protected however not so protected that anybody ought to be left fretting.

Nevertheless, it’s not fairly the Tesla destroyer the media is eternally attempting to find. Regardless of boasting some spectacular specifications, the e-tron is roughly on par with the Mannequin S when seen broadly. However it ought to nonetheless make for wholesome competitors whereas encouraging the American model to step up its recreation. 

A pair of electric motors driving every axle draw energy from a ninety-kWh battery pack. Mixed, the duo produces 434 kilowatts of power, or about 590 horsepower. Audi says the machine will rush to sixty two mph in simply three.four seconds, which is definitely a bit higher than we had initially presumed. However it isn’t quicker than a four,891-pound Tesla Mannequin S P100D operating at full tilt.

Charging occasions are one other story. Boasting range of about 248 miles, in response to Europe’s new Worldwide Harmonized Mild Car Check Process, the Audi’s 800-volt battery system is meant to be able to restoring eighty % of its complete range in round 20 minutes. That’s ought to make it (and the Porsche Taycan) one among the quickest-charging EVs on the market.

Dealing with ought to profit immensely from the e-tron’s rear-axle steering, superior all-wheel drive system, and exceptionally low middle of gravity — Audi went as far as to match it instantly with the R8.

Minus one inner combustion engine, the e-tron GT has a small entrance truck with three.5 cubic ft of obtainable area. Whereas a useful area for storing carry-on baggage, most of the critical storage duties will go to the rear compartment, which measures a hair beneath sixteen cubes. Since this can be a idea vehicle, the interior is more likely to change. Nonetheless, you’ll be able to comfortably rely on a wealth of tech and extra luxurious than you in all probability ever wanted.

Contemplating Audi solely launched its first battery-solely vehicle a few months in the past, the e-tron GT appears like the model is making strong progress into the courageous new world of “electro mobility.” Nevertheless it nonetheless has an extended solution to go. Audi needs to promote twelve cars with all-electric drivetrains by the finish of 2025 and have its product line that includes sufficient electrification to “cowl each related market phase from the compact to the full-size class.”

Hopefully the world is prepared by then.
