At Long Last, Audi Officially Unveils The Hotly-Awaited All-Electric E-Tron GT

Ever since Audi announced its all-electric e-tron GT concept at the 2018 LA Autoshow, it’s been relentlessly tantalizing us with images of prototypes and figures from pre-production tests. By now, most of us have had our fill of the German automaker’s antics, but the good news is that we won’t be seeing any more teasers.

That’s because the 2022 e-tron GT is finally here. And the best part is — it’s strikingly similar to the show car. In practice, this means that it’s powered by a pair of permanently excited synchronous motors (PSM) at the front and rear axles, with the base model putting out some 522hp and 472lb-ft of torque and the hotter RS an impressive 637hp and 612lb-ft of torque. When it comes to the performance, Audi claims respective 0-60mph times of 3.9s and 3.1s as well as corresponding top speeds of 152mph and 155mph. Equally impressive is the range, for though the rival Taycan only boasts about 200 miles of juice, the e-tron can go as far as 238 miles on a single charge. Add to that a driver-oriented cockpit and some characteristic German build quality, and it’s safe to say that Audi has made good on its promises. It’s available now, starting at $99,900.
