The appearance was no longer a secret. The technical information is still there.
The entire press gallery leaked last night . This allowed us to get to know the e-tron GT concept early and the first impression was not bad . However, the question is: what will Audi do with this and what can we expect?
The German car manufacturer says that this is a study model, which of course also explains the name ‘concept’. In 2020, however, there must be a production version. That will take more than two years, so Tesla does not have to fear anything with the Model S for the time being. It will be the third full electric Audi, after the e-tron SUV and the e-tron Sportback. For the figure enthusiasts, the e-tron GT concept is 4.96 meters long, 1.96 meters wide and 1.38 meters high. The concept stands on 22-inch wheels with the tire size 285/30 and has a wheelbase of 2.90 meters. There is a total of 550 liters of luggage space. 450 liters in the back of the trunk space and another 100 liters at the place where ‘normally’ a conventional engine is located.
What has Audi of the powertrain fried? The e-tron GT has two electric motors. One on the front axle and one on the rear axle. The system power is 590 hp, which results in fine performance. 0-100 does the Audi in 3.5 seconds and in 12 seconds 200 km / h is a fact. The top speed is a limited 240 km / h.
The e-tron GT comes with a 90 kWh battery pack. The WLTP range is 400 kilometers, which is not a shockingly large amount. By the time the e-tron GT hits the market, Tesla does this trick for almost 10 years (!) With the Model S . In that respect, technology is far ahead of the gap with the Germans. The Audi can be charged with 11kW Audi Wireless Charging. The electric car has an 800 Volt system. This means that the battery can be charged for 80 percent in 20 minutes. This results in a range of approximately 320 kilometers.
As said, the Audi is only ready for the real work in 2020. In 2021 the brand starts supplying the electric car to customers.
