Audi has teased a concept version of its Audi E-Tron GT one last time before it is revealed at the upcoming 2018 Los Angeles auto show.
A short 18-second video gives us first impressions of the overall proportions of the concept that will inspire a fully electric luxury GT that will rival the likes of the Tesla Model S, and even closer to home, the Porsche Taycan all-electric sports sedan.
Audi has confirmed that production will start early in the coming decade at the Böllinger Höfe site near Neckarsulm. The new model will likely be based on the same underpinnings as Porsche’s Taycan.
Earlier this week, German magazine Bild released more images of the concept car (in particular the front and rear lights) during an exclusive preview and interview with Audi Head of Design Marc Lichte.

Lichte also revealed that the e-Tron GT’s battery pack will be rated at almost 100 kWh which should deliver a total driving range of 400 km between charges. The e-Tron GT will also reportedly be able to sprint from 0-100 km/h in around 4.0 seconds.
The e-Tron GT’s closest sibling, the Taycan, is powered by two permanent magnet synchronous motors – one at each axle – which delivers a total system output of 600 hp. The Taycan’s 800 Volt electrical system is double that of a conventional electric vehicle and total range is claimed to be in the region of 500 km.
