Following in the tyre tracks of the e-tron SUV, the new Audi e-tron GT concept has made its public debut at the Los Angeles auto show.
The fully electric e-tron GT concept features a four-door coupe silhouette with flat-floor architecture. It is flat, wide and rides on a long wheelbase at 2900mm with the tail of the tape coming in at 4960mm long, 1960mm wide and 1380mm in height.
Exterior design highlights include 22-inch wheels, large air inlets at the front, matrix LED headlights with laser high beam and a new exterior colour known as kinetic dust.
Internal features include a freestanding instrument cluster, racing-inspired sports seats, black-panel look finish for the central instrument and touchscreen display, microfibre headlining and 450 litres of luggage capacity with 100 extra litres under the bonnet.
The interior is also vegan-friendly with no animal-based products used and an assortment of fabrics made from recycled fibres used.
Developed in collaboration with Porsche, the e-tron GT concept’s all-electric propulsion system produces 434kW of power with separate electric motors on the front and rear axles. Torque is sent to all four wheels making the concept a genuine quattro.
Audi suggests the 0 to 100km/h dash takes as little as 3.5 seconds with a regulated top speed of 240km/h to maximise the driving range. With a full charge, over 400km is said to be achievable by the concept car according to the new WLTP standard.
Recharging can occur in several ways. A cable connected behind the flap in the left front wing or contactless induction charging can fully charge the battery overnight whilst an 800-volt system fitted to the e-tron GT concept can reduce that time to 20 minutes to achieve 80 per cent capacity. Lower voltage charging points can also be used but will take longer.
