Audi has unveiled the 2022 Audi e-tron GT, the German brand’s new electrically powered grand tourer set to rival the upcoming Cadillac Celestiq.
Outside, the 2022 Audi e-tron GT features low, long, and wide proportions, with a Singleframe grille design in front, plus a honeycomb insert. The shape and sloping roofline grant the new e-tron GT a low 0.24 drag coefficient. U.S. markets get 20-inch wheels with gray accents as standard, with the optional performance package adding 20-inch wheels with black accents. Go-faster RS models get standard 20-inch AERO wheels, and are available with available 21-inch wheels.
The RS model also features a five-layer carbon-fiber-reinforced-plastic (CFRP) roof as standard. Optional equipment includes HD Matrix-design headlights with Audi laser lighting elements.
The cabin space of the 2022 Audi e-tron GT features Dinamica and Alcantara as standard, plus optional Nappa leather. A 12.3-inch Audi Virtual cockpit provides the readouts, while a 10.1-inch MMI touch response display provides infotainment. A flat-bottom steering wheel wrapped in Alcantara is standard, while a leather steering wheel is optional.
As for the performance specs, the 2022 Audi e-tron GT comes with launch control and overboost features, producing up to 522 horsepower in the e-tron GT, and 637 horsepower in the RS e-tron GT. Sixty mph arrives in 3.9 seconds in the GT and 3.1 seconds in the RS.
Making it all possible is a 93.4 kWh lithium-ion battery pack and 800-volt electrical architecture, with charging from 5 percent to 80 percent in just over 22 minutes using a 270-kW DC quick charge system. A full charge yields 238 miles for the GT, and 232 miles for the RS.
Further features include a two-speed transmission, three-chamber air suspension, and all-wheel steering.
Pricing starts at $99,900 for the GT Quattro Premium Plus, $107,100 GT Quattro Prestige, and $139,900 for the RS e-tron GT. Audi says that the e-tron GT is expected to qualify for up to $7,500 in federal tax incentives. Look for it to hit the U.S. market this summer.
