Meet the Most Powerful EV in India: Audi e-Tron GT
Audi has finally launched e-Tron GT and RS GT electrical SUVs in the Indian auto market on 15 September 2021. The price started from Rs.1.79 Crores (ex-showroom). However, Audi India might have started the electric car generation a little later than other companies. But surprisingly, Audi is currently boasting its variety of luxury still and non-luxury cars.
Much like the e-Tron and e-Tron SUV, the Audi e-Tron GT and RS GT are finally available in the country. Though it has promised us various new features, there are many standard features promised by almost all car companies for those interested.
Audi e-Tron GT was first showcased in 2021 February and has been seen as a strong competitor of Porsche Taycan and Tesla Model S. But, the tables have turned, and now the Audi e-Tron GT is the most potent EV Audi has ever created. Now, it also came with a new version: the Audi e-Tron RS GT version.
In terms of style, the e-Tron GT closely resembles the 2018 Audi e-Tron GT model. The four-door automobile shows a steep sloping roofline, broad shoulder line, wide track, and low cabin. The Audi gets a brand new single-frame grille on the e-Tron GT.
It has a honeycomb-pattern grille which is painted in the body color with a black surround. Instead of cooling, the grille’s main purpose is to cover various sensors utilized by the car’s assist systems. Audi’s signature LEDs and tail-lights with ‘coming and leaving home’ animations are pretty unique.
The Audi e-Tron GT gets a 10.1-inch MMI touch screen infotainment system and a 12.3-inch Virtual Cockpit system on the interior. The system supports voice commands and Audi Connect services. AS USUAL, the MMI navigation comes with a Wi-Fi hotspot, providing AI navigation with e-Tron specific functions. It also has an e-Tron route planner for getting the quickest route. You can also check the shortest charging stops at powerful DC charging points.
The Audi e-Tron GT has connected automotive technology, a 16-speaker Bang and Olufsen 3D sound system, a shift-by-wire gear selector, 3D climate management, lighting control, air suspension, Matrix LED, and 20-inch alloys tires. Safety instrumentation includes nine airbags, a 360-degree parking camera, different driver help systems like Lane Departure Warning, and Electronic stability control (ESC)
