Audi Sport expected to release 2021 fully electric e-tron GT
Audi and electic enthusiasts can look forward going well into 2021 because Stephan Winkelmann, Audi Sport chief, has announced the development of a 100% electic model of the Audi Sport (internally known as the e-tron GT). Winkelmann hasn’t mentioned too much detail about the release except for hinting at similarities between this new release and the Porsche Mission E. It is supposed to be a four-door EV which is low-slung and powerful.
Since this futuristic hatchback is designed within the Sport division, it won’t share much in common with the e-tron Quattro as far as the mechanics are concerned. The renderings suggest it will be low to the ground, but it is suspected it’s real world release will be lower. The ultra powerful engine should be capable of reaching 155 mph, or even breaking through that threshold over a long period of time.
There are different predictions in the world as to when people will be driving electric cars as the standard, but Audi Sport will be ready regardless of which direction the world goes in with it’s e-tron GT. Drivers of this vehicle will have the benefit of having a silent engine which the added bonus of power at their foot.
The 2021 release of the e-tron GT will have a similar platform with the Porsche Mission E. More specifically, the electric-only architecture will make a stand-alone car. The battery capacity in the Porsche charges to approximately 80% in 15 minutes, and it is suspected the e-tron GT will be close to this as well. Lamborghini and Bentley will probably see a migration from this platform as well.
