2022 Audi E-Tron GT Finally Makes its Debut

Audi had been working on enhancing its EV lineup in light of upcoming emissions standards and the global fight against climate change. The German auto manufacturer has revealed the 2022 Audi E-Tron GT after showcasing the vehicle earlier in the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show. Back then, a concept car was shown with its flashy design and attractive looks.

Fortunately, Audi went against the standard and introduced the E-Tron GT with only slight changes to the design. Usually the production version differs from the one shown at auto shows.


The E-Tron sedan comes in two versions. There is a 4-wheel drive Quattro GT variant and then the much sportier RS E-Tron GT tuned by non other than Audi Sport.


Exterior

At first glance, this sedan looks like a dream come true for most car enthusiasts. It is very low to the ground, with a dominant hood and sloping roof joining in with the rear. The aggressive lines are a nice touch but so are the sleek headlights. In the rear, the taillights fill the canvas with the rear diffuser finishing the look. There is no exhaust pipe since the GT is an all-electric four door coupe. The E-Tron GT does not look like an Audi at all but whatever they are doing we love every inch of it. The car is a direct rival to the Tesla Model S, so expect more than a few upgrades.


Powertrain


Audi has been working on improving its EV range and bringing it on par with the competition. As such, the E-Tron GT gets a 92 kWh battery of which only 85 kWh is usable and the rest is saved for use in emergency situations. The EPA estimated battery range is 238 miles on a single charge for the GT version. The RS on the other hand is good for only 232 miles.

Charging ports are available on both sides of the front fender and fast charging is also available which fills up the battery from 5 to 80 percent in 23 minutes.


The dual motor setup allows 469 hp taking the car from 0 to 62 mph in 4.1 seconds. The sportier RS variant does the same in 3.3 seconds.


Availability


The 2022 Audi E-Tron GT shall be available in the Spring of 2021 with prices starting from $99,900.
