Product Overview

Audi e-tron GT is an electric executive sedan. Slotted to compete against Tesla Model S, the e-tron GT shares its platform and chassis design with the Porsche Taycan.
At launch in February 2021, Audi has introduced the RS e-tron GT and the e-tron GT quattro, which differ in their power output. The RS version is able to accelerate from a standing still to 100km/h in 3.3 seconds.
Like the Taycan, the e-tron GT features adaptive air suspensions on all corners. The RS model comes standard with rear locking differential, while both models can be optioned with all-wheel steering. Brake disks with tungsten carbide coating as well as carbon fiber ceramic brakes are also available.
Compared to the Taycan, the Audi e-tron GT offers much of the same amenities but comes with lower power output. At the same time, the e-tron GT shares many design elements with the A7.

Open the GT’s frameless doors and you’ll find an interior rich on material quality and Audi design. The way in which the E-tron GT steers could only be from Audi. It has a lightness off of straight-ahead, a real directness and a remoteness that the Taycan avoids.

Pros
  • Powerful engine
  • Comfortable to drive
  • Lots of physical buttons
Cons
  • Not as fast as the Taycan
  • Not as agile as the Audi

Reviewers from autocar have found the following***:
The RS E-tron GT is the most powerful RS model yet. It can accelerate from 0-62mph in ‘considerably less time than 3.5sec’ It corners really flatly, with masses of grip but not so much that it won’t nudge into gentle, easily throttle-controlled understeer if you come into a bend a bit too enthusiastically.

Pros
  • Super-fast acceleration
  • Super-sporty cabin
Cons
  • Not as comfortable as the Porsche
  • A bit too wide for the frame

Reviewers from autocar have found the following***:
The more time you spend with the Audi, the more you realise the brand's engineers have imbued it with its own distinct character. It's not as quite as engaging or ultimately capable, but it's not far behind. It slips into your life even more easily, looks better and has an interior that works more intuitively.

Pros
  • Powerful Vorsprung engine
  • Comfortable to drive
Cons
  • Not as dynamic as the Porsche Taycan 4S
  • Not as engaging as the E-tron GT

Despite the RS’s 2347kg kerb weight, it goes like the clappers: 0-62mph in 3.3sec kind of clappers. Power is delivered impeccably smoothly and quietly. The way in which the E-tron GT steers could only be from Audi. It has that lightness off of straight-ahead, a real directness.

Pros
  • Powerful engine
  • Good value for money
Cons
  • Not as engaging as the E-tron GT
  • Not the most fun to drive

autoexpress[5]

Sentiment Score 83%
Reviewers from autoexpress have found the following***:
Suspension and dampers feel surprisingly soft in their set-up for an RS model. Audi's variable quattro all-wheel drive system constantly monitors and redirects power between the front and rear axles, depending on which needs it most. An even hotter ‘Performance’ version is understood to be on the way but we're really not sure it's necessary.

Pros
  • Powerful engine
  • Comfortable to drive
  • Impressive range
Cons
  • Not the most fun to drive

autoexpress[6]

Sentiment Score 82%
Reviewers from autoexpress have found the following***:
The all-electric Audi e-tron GT four-door coupe/saloon is similar to the Porsche Taycan in more than concept, because the pair share a floorpan and 40 per cent of their components. The Audi is built on the J1 platform developed jointly by Audi and Porsche, and although it's not the firm's first EV, it's the first to be built in Germany. Maximum quoted range is 298 miles on a full charge, and while both figures are beaten by the Tesla Model S, the Audi's rapid charging capacity means you can theoretically put a 60-mile top-up into the 95kWh battery in five minutes.

Pros
  • Impressive acceleration
  • Impressive range and range
  • Excellent range and charging tech
Cons
  • Pricey compared to rivals

autoexpress[7]

Sentiment Score 87%
Reviewers from autoexpress have found the following***:
Audi e-tron GT has a claimed range of 298 miles, zero local emissions and a DC rapid-charging system that can deliver an extra 60 miles of range in just five minutes. Powered by a 93kWh battery and a pair of electric motors, the four-wheel-drive GT might weigh as much as a Range Rover, at 2,347kg, but it generates 469bhp and 630Nm of torque. With launch control and ‘overboost' that gives it 523bhp for 2.5 seconds, it's enough to lower its 0-62mph time from a claimed 4.5secs to 4.1.

Pros
  • Powerful engine
  • Impressive range
  • Superb infotainment system
Cons
  • Looks and feels too much like a regular Audi
  • Lack of tech

Reviewers from autoexpress have found the following***:
The RS e-tron GT is Audi's answer to Porsche's Taycan Turbo. With 590bhp and 830Nm of torque it makes light work of its 2,347kg kerb weight. A velvet-like touch to how it rides, smoothing the surface rather than trying to crush it into submission. There's a crispness to its controls, although the steering still has that Audi remoteness.

Pros
  • Impressive powertrain
  • Comfortable ride
Cons
  • Interior is a let down
  • Interior could be better

Reviewers from autoexpress have found the following***:
Both the Taycan and the e-tron GT are best considered as four-seaters. It is possible to add a fifth seat, but it's only really of use for small kids. Life in the two outer seats is much better, and accommodation in the Porsche is nearly identical to the Audi. Even with the side mirrors folded, both of these cars are nearly two metres wide.

Pros
  • Superb electric performance
  • Excellent infotainment system
  • Excellent refinement
Cons
  • Lack of space in the back seats
  • No 4WD option

Reviewers from autoexpress have found the following***:
The e-tron GT will be Audi's third fully electric model when it launches in 18-months time. It shares its platform, called J1, with Porsche's upcoming electric vehicle, the Taycan. Audi engineers are still working on refining the overall powertrain to deliver smoother and a more relaxing drive. The chassis is still being worked on, which is a relief, because the ride quality is pretty bad.

Pros
  • Sleek looks

Reviewers from carmagazine have found the following***:
The driving position is incredibly low, especially so considering there's a hunk of battery below your feet. The seats are also super-comfortable and supportive – our test car had the optional fabric upholstery. The e-Tron's keen steering combines with its low centre of gravity to change direction eagerly and feel suitably low and planted.

Pros
  • Powerful e-Tron

  • Not as powerful as some rivals
  • No Sport Plus equivalent

All E-Tron GTs have a three-chamber air suspension with Comfort and Dynamic settings. Performance-enhancing technologies like torque vectoring and rear-axle steering amp up the experience. Like the Porsche Taycan, the E-tron GT doesn't offer much in the way of regenerative braking.

Pros
  • Superb ride quality

  • Excellent infotainment system
Cons
  • No regenerative braking
  • Limited trunk space

Reviewers from theverge have found the following***:
To step inside the E-tron GT is to enter a familiar world. There’s a touchscreen display and physical buttons for the HVAC system. Front-seat space is generous, but the cockpit is noticeably narrow. It doesn’t beat Tesla on range, nor does it do much to improve on it.

Pros
  • Sleek, fun interior
  • Fantastic battery life
  • Comfortable to drive
Cons
  • Lackluster infotainment system
  • Lack of driver-assist features
