Ever remember the cool sports car driven by Iron Man in Avengers? Your dream car finally comes to be more realistic. The Audi E-tron GT is Audi’s super sports car that aims to take on Tesla’s Model S.
The Audi E-tron GT shares a lot of similarities with the Porsche Taycan and it is sometimes seens as a re-bodied version of the Taycan. They use the same aluminum platform structure, they share the same hot-pressed high-strength steel, and they have the same powertrain that contains a twin-electric-motor powering system and a two-speed gearbox. Interestedly, even the factories of the E-tron GT and the Taycan are located closely in German. You can travel from one factory to the other in just 30 minutes if there is no heavy traffic.
The Audi E-tron GT is planned to be delivered to Australia by the end of 2021. With the final specifications to be announced prior to that, we have listed the following specs for recharging.
- 4kWh lithium-ion battery pack
- 800-volt electrical system that is twice of the 400-volt electric car norm
- 400km electric range
- 11kW on board charger – Audi car charger
- Ability to charge at up to 270kW DC
- Dual motor 475kW powertrain (175kW front motor and 335kW rear motor)

In regard to size, the E-tron GT is dimensionally similar to the A7 that is 4990mm x 1950mmx 1400mm. It shares some features with Audi’s existing fuel-fed models, including the active aerodynamic elements that are used for cooling and downforce such as the two-stage rear spoiler. It is a heavy car that is more than 2300kg, with large proportion of the mass is concentrated very low. The low center of gravity allows the E-tron GT to perform exceptionally and this is successfully proved by the Taycan.
The driving range is not that satisfactory considering the big battery size, but it is more than enough for the daily driving. And since this is a performance car, driving range will not be the biggest concern and the performance is much more important. The E-tron GT absolutely performs amazingly. It can accelerate from 0-100km/h at 3.5 seconds. This is even quicker than the Audi R8, the benchmark Audi super car that has a 5.2-Litre V10 engine.
Charging is always one of the major concerns when you own an EV. Owners of the E-tron GT will use a dedicated Audi electric car charger for home charging. This fast home charger will deliver the maximum current to the on-board charger, at a speed of 60km per hour of charging. You will get a fully-charged car after 8 hours of charging.
Audi E-tron GT can take power from a standard 10A power socket using a portable charger. This is only recommended for emergency situation that there is no public charging station around. To use the public charging station that requires you to bring your own cable, you will need to have an Audi E-tron GT charging cable. You can have an adapter with you so that you can also charge at the Type 1 charging station.
The E-Tron GT is capable to utilize the fast DC charging (up to 270kW). You can charge from 5% to 80% (300km of electric range) in just 20 minutes using a 270kW DC charger. For more common 50kW charger, you can fully charge your E-tron GT in under 2 hours. Considering the expanding fast DC charging network, you will be more and more confident travelling with the E-tron GT.
