Days before its presentation, the final image of the Audi e-Tron GT, Audi’s electric saloon, is completely filtered, revealing a final design very much in line with that shown by the prototype.
Days before what is probably the most important presentation of the year for the Ingolstadt firm, the new offspring is exposed. It is the Audi e-Tron GT, which has been completely visible after the leak of the images in which it is seen in its final production form. It is about a leak of the new electric car that has taken place through Carspias and of which we have become aware through their social networks.
The presentation of the new Audi electric GT is planned for the 9th of this February, but thanks to these leaks, and although the images do not distill a great quality, we can see its final lines.
Lines that are faithful to those of the prototype shown by the German firm in 2018 and that Audi itself has been in charge of showing, little by little, in events and teasers in which it made an appearance, although camouflaged, its Audi e- Tron GT.
The Audi e-Tron GT, as we already know, is based on the J1 platform. A platform that the German group is using in these early stages of electrification for the group’s most pretentious electric cars, such as the electric Porsche Taycan, which is also built around this same platform.
The images that have been leaked of the new Audi e-Tron GT show that, in effect, the changes that Audi has made on the concept models have been minimal. It has largely respected both the exterior image, as well as the proportions of the body, which maintains the width of the rear axle and the prominent hood. Only, through small tweaks, has normalized the exterior aesthetics of the e-Tron GT to offer a more ordinary and less aggressive image than the one that the prototype looked like.
On the front, we find the usual Audi grill, large, but this time as an ornament, since like the E-Tron and e-Tron Sportback, due to its electric condition it is blind. This is framed in a black outline with which the designers have given a more organic, more natural image to the front, and where ragged headlights are joined by a thin sheet, also finished in black.
While on the side, more discreet wheels than in the concept models will be more efficient than previously seen, with a more aggressive design, at the rear the changes we find are minimal, if not non-existent. The black outline at the front has been extended to the rear at the bottom, which houses a large air diffuser.
We have also had the opportunity to see the interior of the e-Tron GT ahead of time, and also the logos that we find on the back of the seats indicate that we are looking at the interior of the Audi e-Tron GT RS, the most powerful version of the Audi electric saloon. However, there are no surprises, since it is an interior that could well belong to any other Audi of medium or high range, such as the A6 or A8.
It is expected that thee-Tron GT will reach the market, being offered in the first instance with an electrical scheme represented by two motors, so it would assume the condition of all-wheel drive, and that together they will reach a power of around 500 CV. The autonomy, unless surprise, should be around 450 kilometers with a full charge based on the WLTP cycle.
