AUDI UNVEILS STUNNING E-TRON GT CONCEPT
Unveiled at this week’s LA Auto Show Audi showcased its sleek new four-door coupé
planned to go on sale in just two years, with deliveries starting in early 2021.
Following in the footsteps of the Audi e-tron SUV and the Audi e-tron Sportback the new E-Tron GT Concept which sits on 22-inch wheels and takes power from a 90kWh battery pack creates 434 kilowatts of power, or 590 horsepower. That’s good enough to go from 0 to 60 mph in about 3.4 seconds, according to Audi.
Audi is estimating a range of about 248 miles for the E-Tron GT, according to Europe’s new Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicle Test Procedure (WLTP) standards.
Inside, the car gets Audi’s virtual cockpit digital driver display, a touchscreen dashboard, and the interior is completely vegan. With the concept car the designers have deliberately gone for the consistent use of sustainable materials – a clear statement of contemporary automotive design. Animal-based products are not used at all: the Audi e-tron GT concept comes with a vegan interior. Sophisticated, synthetic leather is used on the seats and other trim surfaces. Fabrics made from recycled fibers are used on the seat cushions as well as the armrests and on the center console. Microfiber material adorns the headlining and the trim of the window pillars. Even the deep-pile floor carpet is made from sustainable Econyl yarn, a recycled fiber made from used fishing nets.
A light strip runs across the entire width of the rear. This strip dissipates at the outer edges, in the actual lighting units, into individual wedge-shaped LED segments. This architecture links the e-tron GT with the volume-production SUV e-tron, making both instantly recognizable even in the dark as Audi electric automobiles.
