Audi has been producing quite a few e-trons lately—the e-tron SUV and the e-tron Sportback. Their new PB18 e-tron supercar is next in line, alongside the self-driving Aicon, and is part of the proposed 12 all-electric cars that Audi is planning on, including the e-tron GT.
The GT has been outfitted with a “more than” 90kWh battery pack to power the front and back motors for a range of 250 miles. With 800 volt charging, you’ll be able to charge the battery pack up to 80 percent in just 20 minutes. The GT comes with Quattro traction and torque vectoring—which will be needed for the 590 horsepower. With that much crank going on, the GT can hit 62 miles per hour in just 3.5 seconds; 124 miles per hour comes in 12 seconds.
The GT also uses brake energy recuperation. There are ceramic brakes, but the braking load will be handled by reversing the polarity of the electric motors until you reach the 0.3g threshold.
It’s not just the electric motor that Audi is using to save the environment. The interior is said to be completely vegan with synthetic leather and microfiber headlining. The carpets are even recycled fishing nets.
