Audi’s Engineers have taken the German carmaker’s E-tron GT around the Nurburgring for some proper testing, and it looks very exciting indeed, or, as Audi would call it, Dynamic.
The concept for the four-door EV was first shown to the public in 2018 at the Los Angeles Auto Show, sharing its platform and a lot of its features, like torque vectoring, and rear-wheel steering, with the Porsche Taycan. The Production model is set to be launched next year, and it will keep much of the exterior design as the concept, however, during the test laps, Audi still hasn’t slacked off on the camo wrap just yet.
The E-Tron GT is set to come with dual motors powered by a 96 kWh battery pack, though other drivetrains will follow. It’s expected to have a driving range of 250 miles in the WLTP cycle and it’s also expected to support 350 kW fast charging, taking as little as 20 minutes to obtain an 80 per cent charge.
The performance is expected to be close to what the concept back in 2018 put out; a combined output of 582 hp, 3.5 seconds to reach 62mph from nought, and a top speed of 149 mph.
The E-Tron GT was supposed to be premiered at the Los Angeles Auto Show early this year, but seeing as that event postponed to May 2021, A full debut is expected by the end of the year in some other fashion, with the first units arriving in dealerships in early 2021
