Another Motor Show, another Audi e-throne. They were recently nidħluhom – not just e-SUV throne and e Sportback throne, but PB18 e supercar throne and self drive Aicon. The message is clear Audi – going clear on electricity and getting there before rivals. Well, except Tesla. The pushing air frequencies by product means that cars BMW and Mercedes must work hard to be heard.
The chatter will not change anytime soon. Between now and 2025 Audi will add all 12 electric car, and give widespread presence in & # 39; & # 39 diverse range, shapes and sizes. Last year Audi sold more than 1.8 million cars. Within seven & # 39; considers third year, about 600,000, will be electric. If that is the case for change we & # 39; some magnitude.
What we have not seen is affordable. The E-GT Throne does nothing to change that. It is a concept at the moment, but will come in & # 39; form & # 39; production at the end of 2020, to join the e-SUV throne (for early sale the next year) and e- Sportback crossover throne (late the next) year.
It was "developed by & # 39; close collaboration with & # 39; Porsche", says Audi. We & # 39; d go away. Basically it Taycan, the car formerly known E. Mission size, ethos and very similar power. Visually, nor too & # 39; apart. Expect Porsche is slightly faster / less / more sports.
The GT uses e-throne "rather than" package & # 39; batteries & # 39; 90kWh to fill the space between the axles. There are front and back motor to provide traction truck and & # 39; voltage quattro. The total output of the system is & # 39; 590bhp, good for 62mph in 3.5secs and 124mph in & # 39; 12secs (Porsche quotes the same figures, but put "under" them). Max is & # 39; 149 mph, range of & # 39; WLTP is & # 39; 250 miles, and load & # 39; 800 volt means that you can & # 39; requires 80 percent at & # 39; 20 minutes.
S & # 39; now, so familiar. And predictable. Now for the less known stuff. energy recovery from braking will be a big deal. Up to 0.3 g m & # 39; You will not use the ceramic disc brakes at all, simply by inverting the polarity of the electric motors. This should take care of 90 percent of all of your braking needs and can & # 39; pulling the paddles to vary the deceleration – as engine braking on down downloading. It is again: Hyundai is on the Kona EV. There pocket & # 39; 450 liters and an area of & # 39; under the bonnet & # 39; 100 liters "surprise". Everyone is making them these days.
Inside, Audi seeks inside & # 39; food. The skin is synthetic, there microfibre headlining and carpets are made from recycled fishing nets. Presumably remove dolphins them first.
The electric skateboard platform gives eTwoner GT b & # 39; center & # 39; & # 39 with low gravity, similarly to the R8. Safe to say they are not targeting quite sporting direction. Do not worry though, without doubt have electric Audi R8 together before 2025.
