Audi e-tron GT Concept to be unveiled in Los Angeles

Last September Audi introduced the first model of its electric offensive, the e-tron Quattro, an EV SUV that competes directly with the Tesla Model X. A little less than three months later, at the Los Angeles Auto Show, the German manufacturer will unveil the e-tron GT Concept, which will also tackle Tesla and its Model S.

We do not know much about the electric model right now other than the 4-door coupe will be developed by Audi Sport and built on the Porsche Taycan platform.

Last month Autocar was able to sit down with Siegfried Pint, technical director of powertrain integration at Audi, and took some more information from him.

Expected to arrive in 2020, the e-tron GT is projected to have 400 km of autonomy and would be the first vehicle of the brand to use 350kW chargers, which should charge the vehicle to 80% in less than 12 minutes.

Also, according to Mr. Pint, the coupe will be performance-oriented, and Audi aims to beat the Tesla Model S P100D with better 0-100 km/h and top speed, among others.

The e-tron GT concept will share the stage at the Los Angeles Auto Show with the e-tron Quattro, which will make its first appearance in a car show, as well as its trio of new sedans, the A6, A7, and A8. The Q8, which hit dealerships recently, will also be part of the cars showcased by the German manufacturer.
