Audi’s all-electric E-Tron makes its debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show this week. The third all-electric car to be shown from the brand, the Audi E-Tron GT Concept a swoopy, almost A7-like car, riding atop an electrified platform with genuinely usable EV range and solid performance credentials.
The GT Concept’s uses 90 kWh lithium-ion battery pack paired with two motors, one to each axle, making for an all-wheel drive layout. Total system output is 590bhp, good for 62mph in 3.5secs and 124mph in 12secs. Max is 149mph, WLTP range is 250 miles, and 800 volt charging means you’ll be able to charge to 80 per cent in 20 minutes.
Inside, the E-Tron GT seats four, and offers a wealth of luggage space. The car gets Audi’s virtual cockpit digital driver display, a touchscreen dashboard. The leather is synthetic, there’s a microfibre headlining and the carpets are made from recycled fishing nets. Outside the design is aggressive and in keeping with the brand’s design language, with dramatic LED lighting and sharp lines.
And unlike other concepts, this one is already slated to begin production Audi says the GT will arrive in late 2020.
