Audi e-tron GT has finally made its world premiere amidst much fanfare across the globe. It has been offered in two trim levels: S and RS. The e-tron GT can be expected to hit the Indian roads by the end of 2021 while locking horns with Porsche Taycan.

One can also opt for a 16-speaker, 710W Bang & Olufsen sound system as option.

The maximum power output will be 475bhp which can be further extended to 530bhp by using the launch control function. The torque performance remains the same at 630Nm. The transmission duties are held by a 2-speed unit for the rear motor while an all-wheel-drive system is also available as standard. The 85kWh electric battery will give it a driving range of approx 488 kms. As for Audi RS e-tron GT, it will have a total power output of 598bhp and highest torque performance of 830Nm.
