You might remember that the automaker has presented the e-tron SUV prototype in a similar camouflage pattern earlier this year before the model’s public debut. So what’s up with Audi and its EV camouflages? Well, we believe it’s just an “excuse” that allows the carmaker to put its cars into the news more often. And yes, it’s working.
Besides the new photos which clearly send an electric A7 Sportback vibe, Audi didn’t reveal any relevant information. For now, all the automaker is willing to say is the e-tron GT Concept is “a fully electric sports car representing the future of the Audi performance portfolio.”
That will change later today when the e-tron GT Concept will be fully revealed at the LA Auto Show at 1:05 p.m. PST. Until then, we will remind you that the all-electric pre-production study uses the same platform as the Porsche Taycan.
The Tesla Model S rival is tipped to deliver a 248-mile (400-km) driving range on a single charge. It should also offer similar performance to the Taycan, with reports quoting a 0-100 km (0-62 mph) time of under 4 seconds.
The Porsche Taycan’s two electric motors produce a combined output of more than 440 kW (600 hp). Porsche’s EV also features the industry’s first 800-volt battery system, allowing up to 350 kW charging. As a result, a quick four-minute charge will boost range by 62 miles (100 km).
