The new sports model of the German brand will be available in two versions, the Audi e-tron quattro and the Audi RS e-tron GT, which the German brand produced says his vehicle is “most powerful and ever.”
The Audi e-tron electric all-wheel drive is equipped with an electric motor per axle and a lithium-ion battery of 93.4 kWh with a system and 800 volts , which allows a range of up to 488 km.
The rear differential auto lock is standard on both versions and the RS brings an adaptive three-chamber air suspension.

In terms of aesthetics, the Audi e-tron quattro has a unique Singleframe grille at the front that stands out for its markedly horizontal shape and presents an unprecedented 3D texture.
The illuminated e-tron logo makes it clear at first glance that this Audi is 100% electric. In addition, the narrow exterior mirrors emphasize the elongated and elegant line of this vehicle.
The rear is framed by a continuous strip of light, characterized by elements that resemble the design of the headlights and highlighted by the illuminated e-tron logo.
The new light signature of the Matrix LED headlamps with laser confirms the dynamic presence of the Audi e-tron GT even when stopped. The user is greeted by a characteristic lighting choreography, in the best Audi style.
The four-door coupe is 4.99 meters long and 1.96 meters wide, but only 1.41 meters high. This is possible thanks to the low positioning of the high voltage battery: it is located in the chassis, which not only guarantees a low center of gravity, but also greater freedom of design, while the front passengers sit in a low, but comfortable position. .
Inside the Audi e-tron GT quattro, the center console stands out, the large touch screen at the top and the line of the door panel and cockpit frame the space of the driver, integrating it with the controls and infotainment system.
The two-row sports seats, inspired by motorsport, guarantee an ideal lateral support, even in high curves
