With the launch of the Audi RS e-tron GT, the brand with the four rings is continuing to blaze the trail into the emotional, extremely exciting future of electric mobility. It’s an Audi unlike any other and, ahead of its official launch in the region, Audi Middle East is offering customers the chance to reserve their RS e-tron GT and be among the first to experience and take ownership of the exclusive model through its Join the Waitlist program.
Carsten Bender, Managing Director, Audi Middle East commented, “The RS e-tron GT is the beginning of a new era for Audi and we are thrilled that the Middle East will be among the first markets to make it available for our discerning customer base. This vehicle is a modern reinterpretation of the Gran Turismo and brings the best in sportiness and power to the electric segment, cementing the e-tron’s position as a leader in premium electric mobility.”.
A new era of Gran Turismo: sporty and comfortable
The RS e-tron GT can sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.3 seconds and reach a top speed of 250 km/h. The four-door coupe reinterprets the traditional Gran Turismo concept – its design expressive, its technology revolutionary. Two powerful electric motors – one on the front axle, the other on the rear axle – are responsible for the outstanding electric all-wheel drive.
Its chassis includes features such as adaptive three-chamber air suspension and an electronic differential lock on the rear axle. The e-tron sport sound creates a fitting acoustic backdrop for this technological masterpiece. Matrix LED headlights with Audi laser light come as standard while a number of options are available, including up to 21-inch wheels and all-wheel steering.
The Audi e-tron is the world’s best-selling premium electric car
With the launch of the e-tron GT, AUDI AG is continuing its transformation into a provider of sustainable premium mobility. In 2020, the brand with the four rings was by far the largest manufacturer of electric vehicles among Germany’s three premium brands. The extremely successful Audi e-tron models recorded year-over-year growth of 79.5 percent last year, with 47,324 units delivered to customers.
More than 80 percent of the models in Audi’s range are currently available with an all-electric or electrified drive system, and the carmaker’s EV offensive continues to pick up steam, with Audi increasing the number of all-electric models (BEVs) in its range from three to seven this year. Looking ahead, the company intends to have more than 20 all-electric models and an expanded PHEV lineup on the road by 2025.
