Fully charged: The Audi e-tron GT

Anyone who finds electricity unemotional should take a moment to think about their own nervous system. Because it, too, operates with a natural voltage - and thus emotions do as well. What applies to your own head also works great on the road. We say! To prove that, we took a closer look at the Audi RS e-tron GT.

How do you reinterpret the classic Gran Turismo idea? Through highly emotional design and revolutionary technology. In short: with the Audi e-tron GT. The four-door coupe, which will also be launched as an RS model, uses two powerful electric motors and all-wheel drive. In combination, this adds up to brilliant driving performance. The standard sprint form 0 to 100 km/h? Is anything but standard, and in the case of the RS it takes just 3.3 seconds. And on the long haul? The e-tron GT shows its quality in the form of a nominal range of 488 kilometers thanks to the 85 kWh battery capacity. And because it also has to be fast at the electric charging station, the 800-volt technology pushes the electrons into the battery at lightning speed. Whether chassis, light, handling, networking or e-tron Sportsound: The Audi e-tron GT quattro and the RS e-tron GT demonstrate concentrated technological expertise - and Audi's passion for details.
