Now that you’ve seen the Audi e-tron GT Concept, the brand’s second all-electric car after the e-tron SUV, we’re bringing you some live photos of it. The e-tron GT made its worldwide debut at the 2018 LA Auto Show, marking the second e-tron reveal in California. Thankfully, we were able be in attendance for its unveiling, as it’s even better looking in person.
The Audi e-tron GT Concept is an all-electric, four-door Sportback that will absolutely challenge the best from Tesla and BMW. It’s been built on the same chassis as the Porsche Taycan and actually shared some of its development with that car, alongside both Audi and Porsche. So it gets four doors, a liftback tailgate and a ton of style.
It looks fantastic, better even than the already very good looking Audi A7. In fact, it could be the prettiest electric car on the road when it finally debuts. It’s that good looking. The front end is a bit fussy, as there’s a lot going on, but the rest of it is spot on.
Plus, the front end looks aggressive and sporty, which is refreshing on an electric car. There are actual functional air intakes at the front, something you rarely see on electric cars, and they help cool the battery better than any other EV. Though, I do find it ironic that Audi makes functional front air intakes on an electric car but won’t put functional exhausts on some of its gas-powered cars. Figure that one out.
Under the skin, the Audi e-tron GT packs 590 hp from its dual electric motors, one at each axle, and it can get from 0-60 mph in 3.5 seconds. Audi also claims a total range of 248 miles, which is impressive, especially considering the power and performance.
We’re incredibly excited about the Audi e-tron GT Concept and we can’t wait to see what it actually becomes when it hits the road as a production car. We’re expecting it to be very similar to what we see today.
