The German automaker recently lifted the curtains on its plan of driving into a future dominated by electric mobility. A prototype has already been fashioned, where the body is evidently based entirely on this concept. The production model is expected to be launched in the foreign markets sometime in 2021.
Despite the camouflage regalia on the new prototype, it was quite obvious that the sample model looks almost identical to the developed concept vehicle. As a result, it makes even more sense that when the automobile finally comes to the market, it is likely to resemble the original idea. The carmaker has aimed at expanding its pure electric roster with the new e-Tron GT, which will become the company’s third vehicle to be run purely on electric power.
The car is anticipated to be much more affordable than its competitors from Mercedes-Benz, BMW and Porsche. Much like the Taycan, the e-Tron GT will also run on two electric motors that separately run the front and rear wheels. This dual combination of motors propels the vehicle from 0 to 100 km/h in just 2.7 seconds with a power boost of 600 hp. Also carrying forward the concept’s exterior, the launch model will have a low-draped nose and a flowy-looking grille. The four-door coupé flaunts a look reminiscent of the typical gran turismo design amalgamated with Audi’s liberal styling.
To make the car’s electric ability even more apparent, the e-tron logo adorns the rear of its outside body. Keeping true to its concept, the car has been designed to offer least possible resistance and heighten its aerodynamic ability. The futuristic design is also enhanced by the five twin spoke wheels which add to its sleek look and increase ventilation. The concept vehicle sports a 93 kWh battery which covers a maximum distance of 250 miles per single charge. It is expected to do fairly well in cities equipped with EV friendly infrastructure and charges from zero to eighty in just fewer than twenty minutes.
Presently, only the exterior body of this concept car has been revealed. Consequently, the only thing we know about its interior is that the car will boast a minimally futuristic design, created with sustainable and cruelty-free materials. It is predicted to launch internationally in early 2021, while the Indian launch will take place around the end of 2021 or early 2022 at an expected showroom price of INR 2 – 2.2 crore.
