The flagship of the Audi e-tron lineup has officially arrived in the U.S. taking direct aim at the Tesla Model S. The e-tron GT arrives with sharp looks that maintain the bold styling of the concept car and supercar-grade performance with an electrified system that takes the e-tron GT from 0-60 in 3.1 seconds (3.9 in the standard model) while on its way to a top speed of 155 mph (152 mph in the standard model). That kind of performance puts the RS in line with models like the R8 supercar while also delivering an impressive range of up to 238 miles on a full charge.
The e-tron GT also supports fast charging systems that can get the car to up to 120 miles of range in just 10 minutes on a 270 kW charger and if you wait a little longer, you'll get up to 180 miles in just 22 minutes. Additional details include standard 20" 5-spoke alloy wheels, 20" sustainably manufactured AERO wheels on the RS, a standard carbon roof panel for the RS, available Matrix-design headlights, a leather-free interior with an available Nappa leather option, a "monoposto cockpit with Audi's 12.3" virtual cockpit and a 10" MMI touchscreen, and a standard, Alcantara-wrapped steering wheel.
Both the e-tron GT and RS e-tron GT are now available.
