Piëch’s Sporty 603HP GT Is One of the Most Stunning EVs We’ve Ever Seen

Even though we’ll all likely be driving them in a decade’s time, electric cars are still in their infancy. As such, a lot of brands continue to struggle with the design aspect of EVs. Should they be made to look like current cars, or should they lean into something new and different? A new electric sports car out of Switzerland definitely subscribes to the former ideology, and judging from the gorgeous lines of the Piëch GT, we think they made the right call.

The GT is an upcoming electric grand tourer from nascent Swiss sports car brand Piëch, and it has all of the classic good looks of a GT made by Aston Martin; from the flowing form and flush door handles to the side strakes and prominent faux grille. But the Piëch GT is more than an exercise in good design — it also looks to be a very compelling electric sports car. The GT has just undergone testing that has confirmed a WLTP range of 500 km (~310 miles), which is certainly nothing to sneeze at. On those rare occasions when you do run out of juice, the GT is also equipped with an extremely fast-charging battery. It can be charged to 80 percent capacity in eight minutes at any CCS2 fast-charging station, while a specially-developed TGOOD fast-charger can top it up in just five minutes. In addition to being an EV, the Piëch GT is also a sports car, and that means performance. The car claims a power output of 603 horsepower from its three electric motors (balanced between the front and rear of the car to improve handling) and a 0-62 mph time of under three seconds — again, impressive numbers.

Piëch is still in the prototyping phase of the GT, and testing will continue over the next two years with trials in heat and dust and in sub-zero temperatures with ice and snow, and there’s even some rigorous testing planned for the legendary Nürburgring. The plan is to have the first Piëch GT ready for production in 2024.
