Audi Reveals E-Tron FE05, Preps for Upcoming Formula E Season
The 2020 Audi E-Tron GT Will Charge Twice as Fast as the 2019 E-Tron Quattro
Audi is leaving no stone unturned to make the E-Tron siblings true all-rounders. The latest USP of the E-Tron GT is that it will be the first all-electric vehicle from the Audi stable to support 350-kW charging. This will enable the SUV to charge to 80-percent in less than 12 minutes! Yes, you read it right. This is twice as fast as the E-Tron Quattro.
2020 Audi E-Tron GT
Announced at Audi’s Annual Press Conference in Ingolstadt earlier this year, the Audi E-Tron GT is a new all-electric four-door coupé destined to hit the market in 2020. Offered as part of the Audi electric onslaught in which the Ingolstadt-based company will reveal 20 new electric models by 2025, the Audi E-Tron GT will sit at the top of the Audi Sport division, and will be responsible for constructing an all-new character trait for Audi’s line of Sport vehicles. With models such as the Audi A5 Sportback and Audi A7, the company obviously has some proper knowledge of the four-door coupé design. The E-Tron GT will act as a flagship for this intriguing car segment.
Given the E-Tron GT will take technology, design features, cabin specs, and possibly drivetrain hardware from other E-Tron vehicles, we already know a thing or two about the new car. Marketed to fight against the likes of the Tesla Model S and similar entries from other manufacturers, the Audi E-Tron GT could be even more impressive than the recently introduced E-Tron Quattro SUV.
Audi’s Tesla Model S Fighter, the E-Tron GT Will Debut at the L.A. Auto Show
It looks like Audi’s onslaught on Tesla is not going to end anytime soon. After launching the E-Tron and announcing war against Tesla Model X, Audi has now revealed that it will showcase the much anticipated E-Tron GT at the upcoming L.A. Auto Show. This time, the Tesla Model S is the hot target.
Audi has just unveiled its first full-electric offering, the e-tron SUV. To go with that debut, the brand also announced plans to have no fewer than 12 EVs in its range by the year 2025. These models will apparently range in size from compact to full-size, and there’s a good chance most will be high-riding vehicles - the brand’s SUV- and crossover-centric approach is clear based solely on the first all-electric model they chose to launch.
The 2019 Audi E-Tron SUV Debuts With a $75,000 Price Tag, Max Towing Capacity of 4,000 Pounds
The E-Tron has been teasing us for as long as we can remember. In fact, the SUV was being used in comparisons before we even had any concrete details about it. After spotting it in camouflage all this while, the automaker has finally decided to showcase it to the public, and the car is unmistakably an Audi. Now, has the E-Tron lived up to the expectations and the hype?
The Virtual Mirrors on the Audi E-Tron are Futuristically Cool
The Audi E-Tron may be the first Audi to feature all-electric capabilities, but it’s also the first production Audi model to feature cameras in place of traditional side mirrors. The technology is called the Audi Virtual Mirror, and it is obnoxiously cool. The setup involves a pair of small cameras sitting in the place where the mirrors should be. The camera then feed visual signal to two small touch-screen display units near the door handles, both of which can be configured in a variety of ways.
Not only are the optics of it cool, it also represents a new way of using cameras on vehicles that have largely been disallowed among road cars for various reasons. More importantly, the aerodynamic benefits of using virtual mirrors will also help Audi improve the E-Tron’s coefficient of drag, in large part because the size of these cameras will allow Audi to design thinner casings to store them in. The days of large clunky casings appear to be over in what can only be described as a classic case of reinventing the wheel to accommodate the rise of modern technology. The Audi Virtual Mirrors look awesome and if it ends up on the production version of the E-Tron, expect it to find its way into other future Audi models sooner than later.
Unfortunately, the arrest of Audi CEO Rupert Stadler scuttled plans to have the electric crossover debut at the Audi Summit in Brussels, Belgium on August 30. Hopefully, the delay doesn’t take too long because we can’t wait to see the Virtual Mirror in action on an actual production model.
2018 Audi RS6-E Hybrid Concept by ABT
After a short teasing campaign, the German tuner Abt revealed their newest work of art. Actually, “work of mad.” Based on top of the already frighteningly fast Audi RS6, Abt showcased the RS6-E Hybrid Concept, a car featuring a 4.0-liter, twin-turbocharged, V-8 and a freaking 288 horsepower electric motor strapped to the transmission.
Please welcome the first hyper-wagon with 1,004 horsepower. Of course, it had to be an Audi.
Does the Audi Q8’s Massive Grille Ruin the Whole Design?
The Audi Q8 SUV is making its long-awaited debut today, and the first images of the SUV reveal a somewhat messy-looking front end that appears to have robbed the vehicle from becoming a drop-dead gorgeous model. The overall design of the production Q8 is relatively similar to the concept versions — the Q8 and Q8 Sport Concepts - that came before it, but there is something to be said for what looks to be an overdone design by Audis’ traditionally astute designers.
The New Audi E-Tron SUV Will Shed its Camo at the Audi Summit on August 30th
The Audi E-Tron SUV hasn’t even gone into production yet, and it already has a pretty long history. It started life as the Audi E-Tron Quattro concept, and since then Audi has been pushing the E-Tron Prototype – even going so far as trying to generate social media attention while it was roaming the streets during the Geneva Motor Show. More recently, Audi announced that it would be priced at double that of the Q7, or $99,000. Be that as it may, and despite the fact that we’ve pretty much seen the whole design, Audi will pull the camo off on August 30th at the Audi Summit in the Brussels.
