The Spy Guy can report that the Volkswagen division is putting the final touches to the E-Tron GT, a companion model to the E-Tron utility vehicle that Audi introduced for 2020. The sleek coupe-like GT, which is expected to launch in 2021 as a 2022 model, uses the same platform as the Porsche Taycan (VW owns Porsche), but comes with what appears to be a grille, but is in fact a place where the car’s various driver-assist cameras and lasers are positioned. The all-wheel-drive GT will reportedly come with a two-motor battery-electric system that puts out 590 horsepower and is connected to a two-speed transmission. The GT’s anticipated range is about 200 miles (similar to the Taycan’s). That’s not a lot, but recharging to 80 percent of capacity is expected to take 20 minutes, which in the electric world is pretty rapid. Expect pricing to start in the low-$100,000 range.
The upcoming Audi E-Tron GT might look familiar since it shares the Porsche Taycan platform.
