Offered by a stunning concept at the Los Angeles Auto Show in 2018, the upcoming Audi e-tron GT promises to be a technology tour when it arrives later this year.

Previously, AutoTimesNews already showed photos of the Audi e-tron GT being tested, this time the spies managed to capture an electric sedan on video during tests in snowy Scandinavia. This is the first look at the production Audi e-tron GT in action. The prototype Audi e-tron GT is still disguised, but the design will be very similar to the concept.

Significant design changes are ordinary door handles and smaller wheels. In addition, the production prototype reflects the sleek sports concept body, so it should become one of the most beautiful electric sports cars on the market. We still don’t have any interior photos, but the Audi dual-screen setup used in the A8 sedan should bring 10.1-inch and 8.8-inch screens. In addition, the flagship Audi will be equipped with many advanced driver assistance technologies.

Based on the same platform as the Porsche Taycan, the Audi e-tron GT will use a 90 kWh lithium-ion battery, providing an electric WLTP range of 400 km. For comparison, the most efficient base model of the Porsche Taycan 4S has an estimated EPA range of 325 km, which is less than the Tesla Model S.

When using a 800-volt system for 80% charge it will take about 20 minutes. In this concept, a pair of electric motors produces a combined power of 582 horsepower, which allows the e-tron GT to accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h in 3.5 seconds and develop a top speed of 240 km / h. A less powerful option is expected to be launched later.

It is expected that the production version of the Audi e-tron GT will debut later this year, most likely at the Los Angeles Auto Show, and then will appear at dealerships in early 2021. Hopefully, the coronavirus pandemic will not delay the launch.
