The third installment in Audi’s all-electric e-tron range debuted as the GT concept at the 2018 LA Auto Show. Previewing a production version due in about two years’ time, the concept will make its film debut in Marvel Studios’ Avengers 4, set for release in the summer of 2019.
Following in the footsteps of the just-launched e-tron SUV and the e‑tron Sportback slated for 2019, the sporty four-door e-tron GT is aimed directly at Tesla’s Model S. It is based on the Volkswagen Group’s Premium Platform Electric (PPE) component set that also underpins Porsche’s upcoming Taycan—the production version of the Mission E concept shown at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show. Performance subsidiary Audi Sport GmbH is responsible for transforming the GT concept into a production model. The PPE will be the foundation for multiple Audi models with all-electric drive covering the high-volume B through D segments.
