Audi e-tron GT Concept Overview: Video

The Audi halo electric car is 90% ready

Audi e-tron GT concept, one of the many stars of the 2019 Geneva Motor Show, was presented in detail from the exterior through to the interior by Autogefühl, which as usual brings interesting insights.

The car is scheduled for late 2020, but the design is already 90% done. Things required for market launch are rather minor (door handles for example). The key battery/drivetrain technology is the fruit of a partnership with sister brand Porsche.

Audi e-tron GT concept:

  • more than 90 kWh battery
  • over 400 km (248.5 miles) of range (WLTP)
  • dual motor (PMSM) all-wheel drive with torque vectoring
  • system output: 434 kW (590 hp)
  • 0-100 km/h (62 mph) in about 3.5 seconds
  • 0-200 km/h (124 mph) in over 12 seconds
  • top speed of 240 km/h (149 mph)
  • 800 V battery system voltage
  • fast charging: 0-80% in 20-minutes
  • wireless charging at 11 kW (on-board charger is at least 11 kW)
  • 450 liters of luggage capacity plus extra 100 liters under the hood
  • 4.96-meter length, 1.96-meter width and 1.38-meter height

Great looking vehicle, aesthetically I think it looks nicer than a Model S. I would think the seats/interior would have a higher quality looking material, though.

When the car comes to production there will be a plethora of options for the interior. The concept was making a statement about sustainability.

I hope so. Call me an A-hole but I want leather. That recyclable fabric is going to look disgusting after my kids sit in it after only a few times. Leather is super durable and so easy to clean up.

Stop putting those damm faux grills on the cars! Sheezzzzz.

Electric cars can use the grills to cool down the batteries similar to an ICE with a radiator cooling the engine. Not sure if the e-tron’s do though. But I like the look of it personally. Aesthetics are important, regardless if structurally if it’s beneficial…. no one wants their Audi or Tesla to look like a Prius.

The master of Concepts, announcements and fantasy data 🙂

More than 90KW battery with a mere 248 mile range, while the Model 3 can do 325 miles (LR AWD) on a 75KW battery. Audi is still way behind in EV battery technology.
Otherwise, the concept looks good. Remains to be seen if the actual car will look the same.

Compare the size and weight of the two vehicles, as well as Audi’s approach to styling the car to be clearly an Audi. It’s very obvious that they’re more interested in attracting customers who want luxury than in eeeking out every last drop of performance. That will sit very well with a lot of customers who are unlikely to frequently use that last few km but will get to enjoy the plush interior and great exterior style every day.

Yes, the Audi eTron GT is heavier, but it is a performance car, Audi’s flagship EV, and yet it trails badly behind the M3 despite having a 20% bigger battery than the M3.
As for luxury, it is a subjective term. the M3 LR and AWD are also luxury vehicles according to many. As far as performance goes, the M3P has higher top speed a a better acceleration. Doesn’t mean the Audi e-tron GT is a bad car. It looks stunning, but just like the current e-tron, it doesn’t have a good efficiency. but many don’t care about it, and it will certainly sell.

absolutely gorgeous concept… now please produce and sell it.

While I do understand if a german native speaks English to address a larger audience, I cannot understand why he bothers to convert the metric into these crappy “imperial” units.
