Audi Offers Up Sneak Peek Of e-Tron GT Ahead Of Reveal

Audi will debut the e-tron GT concept on November 28 at the LA Auto Show

This year’s Los Angeles Auto Show will see several interesting electric vehicles and concepts being revealed. One of the most promising, the Audi e-tron GT concept, a vehicle underpinned by the Porsche Taycan architecture, certainly seems like one of the most interesting reveals.

While Audi kept its lips sealed about any real information about this vehicle, the automaker is hard at work at teasing us on the upcoming all-electric luxury car from the Ingolstadt based carmaker, slated to hit the showrooms somewhere around 2020.

Today, a few days ahead of its official premiere at the Los Angeles Auto Show, the German carmaker released a teaser video for the upcoming e-tron GT concept vehicle. While it doesn’t reveal much, it does show some broad strokes concerning the car’s exterior, design cues, and other items.

From the teaser, the vehicle will follow a similar design language featured in most of today’s Audi models. The rear lights are seemingly placed all across the rear, giving us that gorgeous LED strip seen on the new Audi A6, Audi A8, and the Audi Q8. Furthermore, the design is as sleek as it gets! Hopefully, this will become a vehicle similar to the stature & appeal of the Audi A7 – but with a full battery powered powertrain.

If Audi can match what seems to be a clean & stylish design with adequate range & performance (310 miles / 510 kilometers and a 0-60mph (0-97km/h) and acceleration around 2.00-3.00 seconds) they might just have a winner on their hands. Currently, we know that the¬†vehicle is set to benefit from the Taycan architecture in a rather interesting way: it’ll be the first production passenger car able to use the 800-volt battery system that will enable it to use up to 350 kW charging.

Stay tuned for more information and the full Audi e-tron GT concept vehicle reveal scheduled for November 28.

Information on the etron would have been more exciting. Let’s see if anything gets announced at the show, so far no car sold yet… Unknown software issues, resolution time unknown…

I’ve seen the e-tron in a VW/Audi dealers show room. They have covered it now, until the release day.
I’m convinced they try to sell a lot in a short time. Last time I heard, they had made about 2700 cars for Norway.

I hope you are right. It looks like they have been producing a lot (software issues are easy to update later), but they have been some media reports that sales might not start before 2019. Audi has been very sparse in giving an update. It’s a shame after so much anticipation

Looks like petroleum jelly on the camera lense, and the editor forgot to take his ritalin.
The picture on the other hand looks quite good. Just hope they keep a lot of the design in the production version.
Will probably be expensive though.
