Review: The New Audi e-tron GT
As the demand for electric cars continues to surge, Audi has decided to introduce more electrified models. In particular, The Audi e-tron GT joins the luxury electric car market as the first fully electric sports cars from Audi. Designed for performance and to rival the Porsche Taycan 4S, it’s available as two versions - the e-tron GT quattro and the RS e-tron GT. This sporty, yet luxurious car is incredible! Read on to find out more key details about the new Audi e-tron GT.
Performance & Range
One of the main factors that motorists consider when choosing an electric car is the electric range. Well, this electric sports car has an excellent electric range, so any concerns about this can be left behind! Reportedly, the RS e-tron GT can travel up to 283 miles on a single full charge. Meanwhile the e-tron GT quattro has a greater range of up to 298 miles. Also, due to a 270kW charging capacity, both Audi e-tron GT versions can recharge 5-80% in only 22.5 minutes- very impressive!
As for performance, this Audi car is truly incredible! The sportier of the two versions, the 646PS RS e-tron GT can achieve 0-62mph in just 3.3 seconds! Built for optimal performance, the RS e-tron GT has several features such as adaptive air suspension and sports differential as standard. That said, the Porsche Taycan does offer extra agility in comparison.
Design & Features
The New Audi e-tron GT is beautifully designed, combining sporty looks with the ultimate comfort for all your journeys. However, the tapering roofline of this car means headroom in the back-passenger seats is restricted. For a roomier electric car which still maintains excellent performance, you might want to consider the Tesla Model S instead. As for the interior, this Audi can comfortably accommodate up to 5 occupants. GB Vehicle Leasing particularly like the front sport seats which are the perfect finishing touch to this prestige car. Take a seat and enjoy a thrilling, yet comfortable drive in this extraordinary sports car.
The Audi e-tron GT also has an array of excellent features available to help make your journey as pleasant as possible, although not all come as standard. Some of the optional upgrades include Adaptive cruise control and a surround view camera. As standard, the e-tron GT has lane-departure warning, parking sensors and pre-sense technology, just to mention a few. If you decide to opt for the Vorsprung trim or RS e-tron GT, then adaptive matrix LED headlights come as standard. In addition to this, the Vorsprung trim gets a night vision camera and 360-degree camera as standard equipment.
Prices for the Audi e-tron GT start from £79,900, although this figure steeply rises if you want a higher spec with additional extras. So, could this be your ideal electric car?
