Audi E-Tron Sportback, E-Tron GT Stun In Geneva: Live Photos, Videos

With all of those BEVs, the future of Audi looks electrifying

The Audi Q4 e-tron Concept was not the only all-electric Audi in Geneva, as the German manufacturer is readying two more models for market launch in the near future. The two others were prototype versions of the Audi e-tron Sportback and Audi e-tron GT concept.

The fifth Audi BEV scheduled for production – the Audi Q2 L e-tron – will be unveiled soon in China, for which it’s envisioned.

The Audi e-tron Sportback is a direct derivative of the Audi e-tron (SUV) and is scheduled for production by the end of this year. The specs aren’t yet known, but we assume it will be the same as in case of e-tron, because both models are based on the same platform.

Let’s check out the photos and a walkthrough of the coupe SUV version:

Audi e-tron GT concept

The e-tron GT concept, unveiled at the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show, also attracted a lot of attention. This model could be a reasonable choice for those who can’t afford the Porsche Taycan, as both shares a lot of tech.

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

Audi is going to sell a ton of their EVs.

Not at the extremely high price they’ll be asking for that car. It will definitely sell. But we are talking Model S numbers, not Model 3 numbers.

Audi’s aren’t cheap cars, EV or not. They’ll sell well, regardless of price, because the brand is prestigious, just like Tesla.

Speculawyer. And it has yet to be seen what actual volume they can produce even if they want to produce more. The question will be how many years will it take for cell production by LG Chem catch up to demand from all the different automakers fighting over limited global output.

Down vote: They won’t, because they don’t want to. You already have to meet a guy in a trench coat, around back by receiving, to pick up an eTron. “Now, scram!” 🙂

The GT is Beautiful!!! And finally…wireless charging at 11Kw. Just a bit slower than the Model S Performance at 3.0sec and with Ludicrous Mode at 2.4 sec. But still very nice.

3.5 vs 2.4 is NOT a „bit“ slower.
It is a LOT.

You do not want to accelerate in 3.5, so you have no need for 2.4. For 99.99% of the people both numbers are the same. Except of course in that rare scenario, when you need to impress a woman/man, who does not like you for your intelligence or your kind behavior and for weird reasons you think it might be a good idea to date her/him nevertheless.

If everyone in the world thought like that, everyone would be driving a Toyota Corolla. Human beings are not always that pragmatic.

It will be a little bit slower than the Model 3P.

“Tesla S … Ludicrous Mode at 2.4 sec.”

No, 0-100 km/h is 2.6 s. The time you mention is measured by the weaker US acceleration timing of X-96.5 km/h. Where X for this car is ~10 km/h.

Wireless AC at current hardwired AC rates is a game changer. I’m sure Audi will sell you a propriety charging pad but eventually other automakers will come to the party and it will open up.

there is actually a agreed standard. This Audi should work on top of a BMW pad just fine.

I gotta say, I’m still a sucker for the looks of Audi.

Of all the ICE makers, yes.

However, they need to ditch their humongous, aero-robbing grills on their EVs if they ever want to approach Tesla’s level of efficiency.

You know the majority of the grill is closed, right? It’s a visual feature and signature of the brand. I’d estimate the open section of the grill is similar in size to the scoop at the bottom of the M3’s front end, which no Tesla fan would dare to criticise. Audi would need to completely redesign the style of their vehicles to really improve their drag coefficient, which is unlikely, since Audi customers like that look. It’ll change over time, slowly.

If it is closed then why make it so big, flat, and goofy looking. I just don’t get it. The ICE folks just can’t let go of that big ugly grille.

Uh, no.
It is plain to see that the CDA on that Audi Big Mouth grill is much more then the Model 3 and S which are its natural competitors.

And another guy, who believes friction is caused by color.

Makes me think Jopp might be more than colorblind!

The back end is more important. The E-Tron Sportsback should give a fair improvement over the E-Tron Quattro SUV.

Beautiful car. Mediocre range. I just drove to LA and back, and anything under 300 miles would just be annoying at this point.

Malibu to LA isn’t 300 miles… 🙂 🙂

We do not know the range yet. I expect some improvement over the E-Tron Quattro because of the sloping back.

OK, a BMW x4/X6 copy. Audi needs a new designer. Because of Marc Lichte audi build ugly cars, from A1 to Q8

Audi needs that, the X4 and X6 sell very well and Audi has nothin comparable.
Therefore they went the easy way and just copied from BMW, why not…

That Audi GT is beautiful.
