The 2022 Audi e-tron GT quattro, unveiled in February 2021, is one of the latest electric cars that enters the U.S. market. The sales first started in Europe and soon should spread in the U.S.

There are two versions of the Audi e-tron GT:

  • Audi e-tron GT quattro
    Premium Plus trim - $99,900
    Prestige trim - $107,100
  • RS e-tron GT quattro - $139,900

The Audi e-tron GT is actually a cousin of the Porsche Taycan. Both are based on the J1 Performance Platform, developed by Porsche for the Taycan.

The Audi e-tron GT looks different and has different suspension settings than the Porsche Taycan. It's slightly less expensive, but also the acceleration is slightly slower compared to the corresponding Taycan versions (to not undercut Porsche).

Both of the Audi e-tron GT versions (standard and RS) are equipped with the 93.4 kWh battery and dual motor, all-wheel drive, shared with the Porsche Taycan (power output numbers might slightly differ).

The expected EPA range of the car is 232-238 miles, but it's significantly higher in real-world tests.

A good thing about the Audi e-tron GT is that it share also the same outstanding fast charging capability as the Porsche Taycan.
