Socially, we have so many unresolved issues as a community and a nation, that in time need to be resolved. What many fail to realize is that climate change and environmental matters should be the primary focus in ensuring that we have livable climates in order to successfully maintain the existence of mankind. With ocean temperatures rising and becoming more polluted by the day and deforestation causing air impurities to become more prevalent, we’re headed in the wrong direction as a society. Luckily, vehicle manufacturers are in search of alternative fuel methods in order to preserve the environment and with the beginning of the mass production of the Audi E-Tron GT, the Zwickau, Germany-based automobile company is preparing for an electric car hostile takeover.
The Audi E-Tron GT is the next luxury vehicle to take on a fully-functioning electric battery driven system joining the likes of the Porsche Mission E and the renowned Tesla Model S.
Without a detailed tech sheet available to the general public, the Audi executive team has revealed that the Audi E-Tron GT’s electric powertrain will be able to crank out 600PS [ better known as a DIN horsepower metric]/ 441KW [Kilowatts]. The vehicle is also rumored to feature all-wheel drive, a floor-mounted lithium-ion battery that allows the vehicle to travel up to 500km [310 miles] on a single charge. Luckily, the Audi E-Tron GT features a rapid charging system that can allow the vehicle to drive up to 400km [248 miles] in just 15-minutes time of charging.
The technologically-advanced, four-door sedan is not the only fully electric automobile offering that Audi has planned to release in the next decade. The German vehicle manufacturers are preparing to produce 20 different fully electric vehicle options by 2025 as a part of their electric future. Which makes up for a third of their of the brand’s vehicle production.
As for the Audi E-Tron GT, the vehicle is expected to be manufactured at the Audi Böllinger Höfe facility in Neckarsulm, Germany and released as early as 2022 with a pricing point of approximately €100,000 [$117,565].
If Audi continues to curate more reasonably priced electric vehicle options for the working class, oil-based fuel resources can be preserved and more research into alternative energy resources will become a focal point amongst developers and engineers. With that said, check out the Audi E-Tron GT and let us know if Audi’s electric future is the latest tech/automobile wave of the future in the comment section.
