New star of the cinema capital: the Audi e-tron concept. Gran Turismo GT four-door electric unit. Volume production begins at the end of 2020 Audi e-tron, the third: the four-ring brand presents a star of the Hall of Car 2018 in the film capital, Los Angeles. With the Audi e-tron GT concept with electric drive, a four-door coupe opens like an exhibition car. The counterpart of volume production must continue in approximately two years. The next electric Audi is launched, such as the Audi e-tron SUV and the Audi e-tron Sportback, scheduled for 2019. This time, the flat architecture has impressive proportions and a low center of gravity. 434 kW (590 hp) guarantee a performance worthy of a sports car.
The torque is transmitted to the wheels through four integral traction units with a torque-driven vector, as one would expect from such a dynamic Audi. The subsidiary of Audi Sport GmbH services is responsible for converting the car into a mass production model. Inspiration in the wind tunnel: design and body plans, wide and long wheelbase, are the proportions of a great classic tourism. And the concept of the Audi e-tron GT is the reflection with 4.96 meters long, 1.96 meters wide and 1.38 meters high. The light body of the four-door coupe is composed of several materials.
Here you have a carbon roof section, as well as many aluminum components and high strength steel elements. The technology of this car has been developed in close collaboration with Porsche. The design and the characters are full of Audi DNA. The slightly sloping roof of the e-tron GT concept that extends to the rear reflects the configuration of the Sportback, which is the hallmark of the brand. This is clearly supported in the future, paving the way for the next phase of the evolution of Audi’s design language. The cab, which sharply decreases backward, differs from current Audi models. The arches and arms of the wheels are heavily sculpted and, with the unusual flat floor for an electric vehicle, the low center of gravity and the dynamic potential of the Audi e-tron GT concept stand out visually. The broad lines and numerous functional elements of the body, as well as the ventilation openings in the wheel wells and solid solid diffuser, highlight its origins in the wind tunnel. A low coefficient of resistance that reduces fuel consumption and low elevation characterizes the design visually.
The threshold area between the arcs of the wheels has been drawn outwards, creating a contrast differentiated with the interior. The threshold draws attention to the basement area where the battery is located and, therefore, to the vehicle’s energy center. Concept Audi e-tron GT. Also the design of the wheel with its five double spokes is visibly aligned with its function. Its dynamic design ensures excellent ventilation of the brake discs, reducing resistance. With 285/30 size tires, the 22-inch wheels are also very visible when viewed from the side. The Audi Singleframe function is located in the center of the front section. Compared to the two e-tron SUVs, its architecture is much more horizontal. The upper part has a colored colored cover. Its surface structure reminds us of the typical beam of Audi RS, a visual signal that characterizes the concept of Audi e-tron GT as a future product of Audi Sport GmbH. In addition to the specific airflow of the body, large air intakes in the front cool down the games, the battery and the brakes.
The bonnet with its air flow to the surface recalls the last two cars of the brand, the Aicon and the PB18 e-tron. It is designed so that the air flow adapts to the body, reducing unwanted vortices. The front section in the shape of an arrow also highlights the dazzling LED headlights, highlighting the dynamic presence of the Audi e-tron GT concept even at a standstill. As we have already seen with the current vehicles of the Visions brand, the light is also animated and welcomes the driver with a short sequence of functions, the wave of light that extends horizontally: a new visual signature that must be found in the production of Mass in the future. . A band of light crosses the entire width of the back. This band dissipates on the outer edges, in the real one.
