The all-electric, four-door fastback is expected to make it to production in 2020.
Audi has already revealed its plans of launching 20 new electrified vehicles by 2025, showing that Ingolstadt will be betting big on electric cars in the future. In September 2018, the company revealed the e-tron crossover – the company’s first production-ready electric car, while they also announced that there’ll be more electric vehicles joining the brand’s portfolio in quick successions. Now one of these future electric Audis could very well be the e-tron GT. It’s a four-door electric sedan, and it’s going to be unveiled at the 2018 Los Angeles Motor Show, although at the moment, it’s just a concept.
From the teasers that have been revealed on online platforms, the design of the e-tron GT appears to be largely similar to the new A7. The silhouette is of an aggressive coupe with a fastback tail. However, given conventionality the e-tron crossover’s design, it’s understood that Audi designers are unlikely to go all out with the design of the GT version.
While Audi hasn’t revealed any technical details of the e-tron GT concept, it’s been reported that the four-door fastback will be underpinned by the same platform that forms the base for the upcoming Porsche Taycan. Reportedly, it’s going to pack a 100kWh battery pack, which will allow it a range of over 400km. Power output should be somewhere close to 600bhp, resulting in a 0 – 100km/h time of under four seconds.
At the unveiling ceremony, Audi is also expected to announce the launch date of the e-tron GT, which we think should happen only around 2020.
