Audi flirted with 100% electric models for a whiles, and now, in the Hall of Los Angeles -In November 30 to December 9-, The revealed the promotion of what the sport variant of this model will be: the concept of e-tron GT which promises great power and autonomy in a more radical format.
The concept of Audi e-tron GT is the prototype with which the brand has anticipated the design and several technical features that the final model will have. Its body measures 4.9 meters in length, 1.96 meters in width and 1.38 meters of height. It has a capacity for four people, four doors and an esthetic coupe.
It mechanically uses two electric motors, one to move the front axle wheels and one for the rear. The set gives 590 HP, and the drive is smart because an electronic center is analyzing how to distribute power as needed. The battery is made of lithium ion, has a capacity of 90 kWh and gives it an autonomy of more than 400 kilometers.
In addition, it has been confirmed that the production model can accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h in 3.5 seconds, from 0 to 200 km / h in more than 12 seconds and reach a maximum speed of 240 km / h
The battery can be loaded by connecting it to the network by means of a cable or through a wireless inductive system. The cable load is much faster, in fact it can move from 0 to 80% of load in about 20 minutes, which means obtaining a range of more than 320 km.
Also, through the fields – a mechanical element that allows to transform movement to direct movement – it is possible to regulate the amount of energy recovered in the phases of delay.
The body and the various structural elements are mostly made of aluminum and ultra high-strength steel, although the roof is made by a polymer reinforced by carbon. The reason Keep weight because the batteries are very heavy.
The e-tron GT will be the third third extraordinary model that adds the e-tron and e-tron Sportback. Its production is scheduled for 2020, with the delivery of units in 2021.
