Audi E-Tron GT
Audi is targeting to build a four-door performance coupe sedan electric vehicle by 2020. The Audi e-Tron is expected to be a sporty car and the brand will be responsible for building an all-new character trait for Audi’s line of sports vehicles. Audi is rumored to be targeting to produce 25 electric vehicles, maybe they will reach their target.
The e-Tron GT will take technology, design features, drivetrain hardware, and cabin specs possibly from the e-Tron vehicles. Surprisingly, it’s estimated to be an even more impressive EV than the recently introduced e-Tron Quattro SUV.
The upcoming e-Tron GT is said to be able to charge up to 80% in less than 12 minutes. The brand is expected to be the first 800-volt battery system that will enable up to 350kw charging in a production passenger car.
The current battery is definitely not capable of handling 350kw charging system but the manufacturers are set to build a next-generation battery that will be able to handle the task. Thanks to the unity joint venture between Ford, Daimler, VW group and the BMW, the VW groups electrify America is also installing charging stations that are of up to 350kw charging.
Drive Train And Performance
Porsche and Audi partnered and are cooperating on a shared architecture for an electric and autonomous vehicle. That being said, Audi will benefit from Porsches work on the electric powertrain that was developed for the Taycan.
The concept vehicle is equipped with a powertrain that can generate power output of over 600 hp (440kw) between two electric motors. As for the battery pack, they are aiming for it to be able to go over 500km (310 miles) of range on a single charge. Exterior
The new e-Tron GT is borrowing its design and inspiration from the Quattro SUV that was released earlier this year. The mid-sized sporty sedan will take the basic design logic of other Audi sedans. That means the brand will not be for the extreme, futuristic shapes and over modified design surfaces.
Audi is targeting to build the e-Tron GT with a long, dominating hood, low glass surfaces, and a high shoulder line. It will definitely be a luxury sedan with a sexy outlook that will surpass the conventional e-ton Quattro.
The car will take a short stance and Audi offers a classic muscular shape for the front and rear, e-Tron GT could become an Audi with a striking attitude. This means the driver will sit lower, the roof will be lower and the pillar will be shorter with smaller windows than the e-Tron Quattro.
Some of the detailed designs will include:
• Matrix laser front lights (unfortunately not for the US)
• 3D LED taillights
• Cool rear view advanced camera mirrors (also not for the US)
The e-Tron Quattro’s feature will carry over into the production interior of the Audi e-Tron GT. The features will include:
• Two screens in the central stack (infotainment screen and climate control screen)
• Visual cockpit (one screen behind the steering wheel)
• Two screens on the doors above the door handle instead of rearview mirrors.
