The Audi e-tron GT Concept Car is presented for the first time at Cinema Capital, Los Angeles Auto Show. Following the Audi e-tron SUV and Audi e-tron Sportback models that will be marketed next year, Audi offers the next electric propulsion model. It plans to launch a four-door electric coupe in approximately two years.
The Audi e-tron GT is based on the classic proportions of Gran Turismo. It is 4.9 meters long, 1.9 meters wide and 1.3 meters high. The light body of the four-door coupe is made with a diverse design: the roof section is made of carbon fiber, combined with aluminum components, while the support elements are made of durable steel. Although the technology required for this car was developed in close collaboration with Porsche, the design and sporty character of the car undoubtedly reflect the essence of Audi.
The Audi e-tron GT concept car has four doors and four seats with a wheelbase of 2.9 meters. The driver's seat is conveniently connected ergonomically to the Audi e-tron GT concept car information and control entertainment system. Sport seats, in turn, provide lateral support even in fast turns that are performed at high speeds. Unusual models of Gran Turismo, the Audi e-tron GT concept car offers two porters. With a compact electric motor, the full benefits of an electric car come with a luggage compartment of 450 liters in the rear and an additional space of 100 liters under the hood.
The powerful concept car Audi e-tron GT of 590 bhp is an impressive application for an electric vehicle. Separate electric motors are placed on the front and rear axles. The new Audi e-tron GT concept car is a four-wheel drive electric quattro. It is planned that the car can accelerate from 100 km / h in about 3.5 seconds, which provides a speed of 200 km / h in just 12 seconds. The maximum speed is 240 km / h.
The planned distance of the concept car, which can be carried out at full load, will exceed 400 kilometers in the WLTP cycle. The battery occupies the entire floor area between the front and rear axles. The distinctive advantage of this design is the very low center of gravity of the car, which significantly improves dynamic driving. The Audi recovery system in electric cars can increase the planned distance by up to 30 percent. The recovery system includes electric motors and an electromechanically integrated brake control system.
The battery of the Audi e-tron GT can be recharged in several ways: by a cable or a wireless charging system wireless charging Audi.
Continuing with Audi's fully automatic Audi electric e-tron SUV launched in September 2018, it is planned to offer 12 fully electric Audi models with power supply for 2025.
