The German brand has released a series of photos of its powerful electric vehicle, the Audi RS E-Tron GT. The car received a slight camouflage – the entire body is specially covered with a film, but despite this, you can get an idea of ​​the exterior of the novelty.

Audi continues its advertising campaign for the all-electric RS E-Tron GT sedan. The version of the novelty, which was published by the press service of the automaker a couple of minutes ago, has a special film on its body, which is designed to hide the real appearance of a serial electric car.

The RS E-Tron GT will presumably debut with a twin-engine powerplant that develops a total of 684 horsepower and 830 Nm of torque.

It is reported that this is enough for the sedan to accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h in 3.5 seconds. The battery has a capacity of 93.4 kWh. A three-engine version of the novelty will also be on sale.

To cope with this performance, a sophisticated thermal management system exists. “In the E-Tron GT, we have two coolant circuits for technical components operating at different temperature levels. The cooler one controls the temperature of the high-voltage battery, while the warmer circuit serves the electric motors and power electronics. In addition, there is a cold circuit and a heating circuit for the passenger compartment, – said Christian Schroeder from Audi subsidiary PSW.

The system even works with the navigation system when the driver selects a charging station. Approximately 30 minutes before arrival, thermoregulation technology adjusts the battery temperature to perfectly match the station’s current charge level and capacity.

Audi has yet to announce a debut date for the RS E-Tron GT, but we know the car should be shown before the end of the year. Sales will begin in 2021.

Not so long ago, AutoTimesNews wrote that the Audi Q5 will be left without a “charged” version. For many years, there have been rumors about the possible appearance of a “charged” version of the Audi Q5 with the RS prefix, but an Audi spokesman said that such a car was not planned for the near future.
