We’ve had to wait quite some time for the e-tron GT to be unveiled, but earlier this week, Audi finally pulled the wraps off its latest EV. And while it shares a lot of technology with the Porsche Taycan, it has a unique appeal all of its own.
Two variants will be available, both of which feature a pair of electric motors but differ in their horsepower and torque outputs. Sitting at the base of the range is the entry-level e-tron GT Quattro that’s rated at 469 hp and 464 lb-ft (630 Nm) of torque or 522 hp and 472 lb-ft (640 Nm) on overboost. Slotting above this variant, and the subject of this video, is the RS e-tron GT, which is rated at 590 hp and 612 lb-ft (830 Nm), and 637 hp and 612 lb-ft on overboost.
Like the Taycan, both variants of the e-tron GT feature a two-speed gearbox. Audi says the RS will hit 60 mph (96 km/h) in just 3.1 seconds in European specification.
This clip from Autogefühl doesn’t just highlight some of the vehicle’s key technical specifications, but also takes a detailed look at both its exterior and interior. In our opinion, the exterior styling of the e-tron GT, particularly in RS specification, actually makes it look better than the Porsche Taycan.
The interior of the e-tron GT is also rather interesting and the focus of much of this video. Whereas Porsche equipped the Taycan with a cabin laden with screens and made it unlike any of its other production models, the interior of the e-tron GT isn’t all that different from current combustion engined Audis.
