Audi executives have already dropped plenty of hints suggesting the company was considering an electric sports car and now new details are starting to emerge about the model.
According to Auto Motor und Sport, Audi is working on a four-seat sports car which has been dubbed the E-Tron GT. The model is reportedly a four-door sedan with coupe-like styling. The car is also slated to adopt the company’s new E-Tron design language which has been shown on various concepts including the E-Tron Quattro and E-Tron Sportback.
The car will reportedly be heavily influenced by the Porsche Mission E and have an electric powertrain that produces 600 PS (441 kW). Additional information is limited but the report claims the car will have all-wheel drive and a floor-mounted lithium-ion battery that enables the vehicle to travel more than 500 km (310 miles) on a single charge. When battery is depleted, the E-Tron GT’s rapid charging system could enable the model to have 400 km (248 mile) of range in as little as 15 minutes.
If the report pans out, the E-Tron GT could be launched in 2022 and have a base price of less than €100,000 ($117,565).
