Audi has been flirting with 100% electric models for some times, and now Los Angeles Hall From November 30th to December 9th, The sports variant of this model explained what would happen: e-tron GT concept It promises greater power and autonomy in a more radical format.
The Audi e-tron GT concept is the prototype that envisages the brand's design and features that the final model will have. Its body is 4.96 meters long, 1.96 meters wide and 1.38 meters high. It has four people, four doors and aesthetic coupe capacity.
Mechanically, one uses two electric motors, one for moving the front axle wheel and one for the other. This set gives 590 horsepower and the traction power is intelligent because it analyzes how an electronic center distributes power according to need. The battery is made of lithium ion, has a capacity of 90 kWh and gives it autonomy of more than 400 kilometers.
In addition, it was confirmed that the production model could accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h in about 3.5 seconds, from 0 to 200 km / h over 12 seconds and reach 240 km / h.
The battery can be charged via a cable or connected to the mains via a wireless induction system.. With the cable, the load is much faster, in fact it can exceed 0 to 80% of the load in about 20 minutes, reaching a range greater than 320 km.
In addition, through the cams – it is possible to regulate the amount of energy recovered in the deceleration phases of the mechanical element – which causes a circular movement to turn into a linear motion.
Although made of roof and carbon fiber reinforced polymer, the body and various structural elements are made of mainly aluminum and ultra high strength steel. Reason? Save weight because batteries are too heavy.
The E-tron GT will be the third fully electric model to add Audi's e-tron and e-tron Sportback. The production is scheduled for 2020 with delivery of units in 2021.
