Audi Australia has announced pricing and equipment details for the highly-anticipated fully electric e-tron GT quattro and RS e-tron GT, ahead of their expected arrival in September 2022.
The e-tron GT is a beacon for the scintillating future of electric mobility, with the four-door coupé combining emotive design, powerful drive, and dynamic handling with ease. It will hit the tarmac from $181,700 plus on-roads.
With its long wheelbase, wide track, and large 20-inch alloy wheels as standard, the e-tron GT has bold stance. The Matrix LED headlights with Audi laser light also feature. Two electric motors combine to produce 350kW (390kW boost) and 630Nm.
The incredible RS e-tron GT goes further, with 440kW (475kW boost) and 830Nm, reaching 100km/h from rest in a staggering 3.3 seconds. The 93kWh battery ensures a driving range of up to 488km.
Recharging at the maximum 270kW direct current (DC) capacity replenishes 100km in just five minutes. Dynamically, the e-tron GT also features three-chamber adaptive air suspension as standard, for a truly customisable driving experience.
It caters easily for a smooth ride when coasting along, but transforms the e-tron GT into a thrilling, responsive instrument when tested by challenging driving roads. Driving comfort is not compromised inside either.
There’s electric leather sports front seats and steering column adjustment (with driver seat memory); the seats complemented with either graphite grey or walnut grey-brown inlays. Three-zone climate control and front seat heating are also included.
Remote air-conditioning further enhances driving comfort. The Dinamica interior package adds sport plus front seats with adjustable thigh support, and vegan upholstery and headlining for customers looking to add more luxe interior features.
The e-tron GT also comes loaded with virtual cockpit plus, Audi connect plus, wireless smartphone charging, DAB+ digital radio and a head-up display. An incredibly powerful 16-speaker sound system by Bang & Olufsen also ensures an audio oasis throughout the cabin.
A full suite of driver assistance systems include side assist, adaptive cruise assist, active lane assist, intersection assist, pre-sense, 360-degree cameras, and a tyre pressure monitoring system.
Customers can select between six no-cost metallic finishes, or solid Ibis white, with a sleek panoramic sunroof also equipped as standard.
The RS e-tron GT advances to the next level. Starting at $249,700 plus on-roads, it is the stunning embodiment of a futuristic gran turismo. Sitting just as wide, it rides on 21-inch alloy wheels that house tungsten carbide brake discs, clamped with distinctive red callipers.
Its thrilling drive dynamics are heightened with the e-quattro sport differential with torque vectoring and all-wheel steering. Black exterior styling complements carbon fibre interior inlays, adding to the visual intent.
It pairs well with the six fine Nappa leather interior trims available and the eight metallic exterior finishes, with Ascari Blue and Tactical Green exclusive to the RS variant. RS sport front seats offer ventilation and four-way lumbar support.
They feature honeycomb stitching to exude a sense of real luxury in the cabin, while the sport steering wheel with its flat-bottom, heating capability, and large shift paddles make it a joy to command such an inspiring vehicle.
The RS e-tron GT is also no silent-moving beast, with a uniquely-composed sound emanating from four speakers, inside and out. The two control units sing both a separate exterior and interior sound.
The synthetic sounds offers an authentically and finely nuanced impression of the work performed by the electric drive system. Both models can be charged via a supplied 11kW AC home-charging kit (requires three-phase power), or up to 270kW DC fast-charging.
This fast-charging option is suitable for stopovers on long journeys, restoring 80 per cent of charge in just 22.5 minutes. The 11kW AC home-charging solution can fully recharge the e-tron GT twins overnight.
Thanks to JETCharge, the e-tron GT and RS e-tron GT are offered with a complimentary standard installation for charging at home. Audi Australia is also offering all e-tron vehicles with a 6-year subscription to the Chargefox charging network.
The German car maker will also offer the e-tron GT models with servicing and roadside assistance for the first six years of ownership, as well as a five-year warranty, a 12-year corrosion guarantee and an 8-year battery warranty on all e-tron vehicles.
