2022 Audi e-tron GT driving footage

The Audi E-Tron GT is the first electric vehicle that feels like a legitimate flagship for its brand. It has presence, is blisteringly quick, and, most importantly, doesn’t seem like a slapdash effort to jump on the EV bandwagon. It’s a car, first and foremost, not a gimmick. And it’s a great one. A base E-Tron GT starts at $99,900 with an RS at $139,900 (both are eligible for a $7,500 federal EV tax credit). What does the additional $40,000 net you? Well, there’s the power, for one. The standard model's output is 496 horsepower but can be pushed to 522 in overboost mode. Torque, similarly, is 464 lb-ft in normal driving, but there’s a total of 472 in reserve. The RS uncorks 590 horsepower, or 637 when boosted, along with a total of 612 lb-ft. That translates to a manufacturer’s stated 0–60 time of 3.9 seconds for the regular E-Tron and 3.1 for the RS.
