Audi e-tron GT opens world premiere | Talking about the core technology of the new Audi e-tron GT quattro

When the new crown epidemic continues to strike the nerves of every industry, and the global auto industry has declined to varying degrees, some auto companies are insolvent and face the test of life and death; some auto companies are advancing with leaps and bounds and continue to create new sales records.

After the launch of the first round of Audi e-tron and e-tron SUV, in early February 2021, Audi again launched a new e-tron car series with e-tron GT quattro and RS with twin settings. e-tron GT two brand new electric vehicle products. In the general impression, with the exception of a few electric supercars, electric cars are environmentally friendly and energy-saving products. However, the settings of the e-tron GT quattro and RS e-tron GT launched this time are slightly different, not only in appearance. The design of a four-door running car is adopted, and a more sporty arrangement is also adopted in terms of power and chassis settings.

The exterior styling of the four-door running car brings an astonishing 0.24 drag coefficient to the e-tron GT. On the one hand, it brings a very streamlined exterior styling to the vehicle, and on the other hand it is also an arrangement to save energy consumption. The data provided is tested in accordance with the WLTP specification. The average energy consumption of the e-tron GT is 5.1~5.3km/kWh. With the 85kWh battery on the car, the e-tron GT has a range of up to 487km, which can be said to have been resolved. The problem of mileage anxiety.

The interior furnishings of the cabin are of course the most advanced design, using a 12.3-inch Audi virtual cockpit LCD screen, the central MMITouchDisplay touch screen also has a 10.1-inch size, plus natural voice control and a head-up display as an optional configuration , EtronGT's cabin also continues the high-tech style that Audi is used to. The interior adopts the usual high-tech style, and the instrument panel and center console have adopted large LCD panels. The basic structure of RSetron's interior is the same as the standard version, but it is replaced with a sporty styling design and corresponding materials. Although Audi released two models in one go, according to past practice, the timing of introducing some regions is still unclear.

On February 10, the world premiere of another milestone product of the Audi e-tron family, the Audi e-tron GT, this stunning four-door pure electric coupe, demonstrated Audi’s success in the era of electrification. Pioneer attitude and forward thinking. This new car contains two versions, Audi e-tron GT quattro and Audi RS e-tron GT.

This Audi e-tron GT produced in Germany is the most high-end model among Audi's electrified products. It is based on the J1 platform jointly developed by Audi and Porsche, and shares the production line with Audi R8. The length, width and height of the Audi e-tron GT are 4990×1960×1410mm, and the wheelbase is 2900mm. According to the designer, its body height is 17mm lower than the Audi A7 Sportback. Active aerodynamics design such as a lower body attitude, reverse integrated air intake grille, and a rear spoiler that can be actively raised and lowered, makes this car's overall drag coefficient only 0.24Cd.

In terms of endurance, the Audi e-tron GT quattro model has a WLTP cruising range of 488km, and the RS model has a WLTP cruising range of 472km, which is the same as the Porsche Taycan. Audi e-tron GT supports 800V charging technology, the maximum charging power can reach 270kW, 5 minutes of charging can increase the range of 100km, the charging time from 5% to 80% is 22.5 minutes.

Audi related technicians said, "Audi e-tron GT is a model that pursues speed and driving passion. Its greater advantage lies in its performance, which is also a manifestation of our electrification strength reserve."

It is understood that the Audi RS e-tron GT version has a maximum power of 440kW, a peak torque of 830N·m, and an acceleration of 3.3s from 100 kilometers. Both versions are equipped with an electric four-wheel drive system. In the "efficiency" mode, the Audi e-tron GT preferentially uses front-wheel drive. In the case of slippery roads, high power requirements or fast turns, the rear-wheel drive motor will also be activated, and its speed is about 5 times faster than the quattro mechanical transmission system.


The high-capacity battery alone is not enough to solve the driver’s mileage anxiety. Audi uses the same 800V fast charging system as its brother Porsche. It only takes five minutes to charge the car to supplement the power required for the 100km range. , And the general charging system also provides two different AC charging devices of 11kW and 22kW, and also provides a 270kW DC charging system. The battery pack on the car has a very sophisticated design. 396 battery packs form 33 battery modules, which are stacked and assembled. In order to accurately control the temperature of the battery pack (plus failure protection), there are a total of four in the battery pack. A cooling circuit, and with heat to assist the air conditioning system.

The front and rear dual motors are paired with a battery module with a low center of gravity to form the basic chassis structure of the e-tron GT. The arrangement of the battery modules is probably the best design currently available. The cooling system with four independent loops is to ensure safety and efficiency. The power system is set up with two front and rear motors, but the power output of the e-tron GT is different from the RS e-tron GT. The maximum power output of the e-tron GT is 476hp/64.3kgm, and the output of the RS e-tron GT is 598hp. /84.7kgm, the maximum power output can be increased to 530hp (e-tron GT)/646hp (RS e-tron GT) when the launch control mode is activated.

And lasted for 2.5 seconds, with additional horsepower, the acceleration of the two cars from 0 to 100 kilometers per hour was 4.1 seconds or 3.3 seconds, respectively, and the top speeds were 245 kilometers per hour and 250 kilometers per hour, respectively. Another power-related item is sound. Electric cars are certainly not as exciting as traditional internal combustion engine models. On these two cars, the standard driving sound setting is slightly higher than the minimum demand required, and according to customer needs, EtronGT can additionally add driving sound effects inside and outside the car (standard configuration on RSetronGT cars).
