Audi gives new information about the RS e-tron GT, which the pilot Lucas di Grassi was able to try out.
The complete presentation of the Audi e-tron GT, the manufacturer’s electric sports sedan with rings, is approaching fast. The Ingolstadt-based company is now revealing new information about it. Among other things, the Ingolstadt-based company has announced that the car will be available with four-wheel steering. Wheel diameters will range from 19 to 21 inches. Behind the rims are standard steel brake discs, which can be coated with tungsten carbide as an option. The RS version that will top the range will have carbon/ceramic brakes. The sedan will also have air suspension with controlled damping.
The Audi e-tron GT is equipped with two mechanical cooling systems, one dedicated to the coldest temperatures for the battery and the other for the engines and electronics. In addition, there is a hot and a cold circuit for the passenger compartment, all four of which can be connected to combine resources according to use.
How much power for the first electric RS?
Audi still hasn’t revealed any details about the powertrain of the e-tron GT or its RS version. Based on the J1 platform of the Porsche Taycan, the car was announced in 2018 with a concept car whose two engines provided 590 hp and all-wheel drive, while the battery was to provide 400 km of autonomy.
The Audi e-tron GT is expected to be introduced in due form very soon. Its RS version, Audi Sport’s first 100% electric car, will be launched shortly after the standard model. Audi has tested a prototype of the RS e-tron GT with its Formula E driver Lucas di Grassi; discover the images in our slideshow.
