The Audi e-tron GT is Audi Sport’s answer to electric cars. Audi have been working hard to significantly broaden their electrification roadmap across the entire model portfolio. For example, the new Audi A6, A7 and A8 models will come with mild-hybrid technology (a small, short-range, electric battery) and potentially all-electric models in the near future.
For the electric mobility of tomorrow, the brand is collaborating closely with Porsche and Volkswagen. This will result in vehicle architectures that are tailored specifically for electric driving. By 2025, Audi will offer more than 20 electrified models that will account for one third of unit sales.
As a sporty spearhead, the premium manufacturer announced at its annual press conference a highly dynamic, four-door Gran Turismo with purely electric drive – the Audi e-tron GT. Production will start some time after 2020. “We interpret sportiness very progressively with our fully electric e-tron GT, and this is how we will take our high-performance brand Audi Sport into the future,” says Rupert Stadler, Chairman of the Board of Management of AUDI AG.
