Audi e-tron GT
The e-tron GT combines stunning design, high levels of performance in a fully electric, grand touring package. It is the electrified halo of the Audi brand that is expected to arrive in U.S. dealerships this summer.

The e-tron GT produces 469 horsepower, or up to 522 horsepower with overboost for 2.5 seconds with launch control, and 464 lb-ft of torque (472 lb-ft with overboost). This allows the e-tron GT to repeatedly accelerate from 0-60 mph in 3.9 seconds on the way to a top track speed of 152 mph.

The RS e-tron GT produces a net 590 horsepower and up to 637 horsepower with overboost. Total system torque is 612 lb-ft. As a result, the RS e-tron GT can accelerate from 0-60 mph in 3.1 seconds and has a 155 mph top track speed. That places the acceleration of RS e-tron GT on par with the V10-powered Audi R8 supercar – all while generating zero direct emissions.

With an 800-volt electrical architecture, the e-tron GT comes standard with the ability to charge at an industry-benchmark 270 kW using public DC fast-chargers. This allows it to replenish its battery from 5-80% in about 22.5 minutes – among the quickest charging rates currently available of any EV. Preliminary manufacturer’s estimated ranges based on approximation of EPA test cycles for a full charge are 238 miles for the e-tron GT and 232 miles for the RS e-tron GT. EPA estimates are not yet available at this time.
