2021 Audi E-Tron GT leaked ahead of February 9 debut
The 2021 Audi E-Tron GT has leaked online, ahead of its full unveiling on 9 February 2021 at 11pm AEDT.
An array of photos published to Spanish website Cochespias – and subsequently re-shared by CarAdvice spy photography partner Andreas Mau (@race356) on Instagram – reveal the upcoming E-Tron GT inside and out, free of the Audi-branded camouflage that adorned late-stage development cars in official previews and spy photos.
Future RS-badged Audi products will not offer customers a choice between multiple powertrain choices, according to a new report.
The move was confirmed by Audi Sport sales and marketing boss Rolf Michl, speaking with British magazine Autocar: “We are well-known for precise portfolio planning, and we want to keep it easy for the customer. We will have one car with one engine. It doesn’t make sense to have different variants.”
Audi E-Tron GT electric car caught on camera winter testing
The Audi E-Tron GT electric car – the twin under the skin to the Porsche Taycan – is a step closer to becoming a showroom reality.
Spy photos (and video, near the bottom of this story) taken during winter testing in Europe show Audi has progressed to prototype vehicles with production-ready bodywork.
The Audi e-tron GT concept has been teased again ahead of its debut at the 2018 Los Angeles motor show on November 28, local time.
Marc Lichte, Audi's head of design, appeared on Bild to give the German magazine a sneak peak of the car's head- and tail-light designs.
He confirmed the car's battery pack will be rated at almost 100kWh, and should allow the e-tron GT to travel around 400km between charges. It will be able to sprint from 0-100km/h in about four seconds.
Audi has announced plans to sell 800,000 pure-electric and plug-in vehicles in 2025, as the brand doubles down on its commitment to electric mobility.
Rupert Stadler, Audi AG board chairman, said the company wants to "revolutionise mobility" and become the top luxury manufacturer in the e-mobility space – not exactly unique goals, given both BMW and Mercedes-Benz are aggressively planning their own plug-in revolutions.
