Introduction

What Car? says...

What exactly is the Audi e-tron GT? If you’re thinking of Googling ‘E-tron’ to find out, we did that. Apparently it means “enjoyment while driving and unlimited suitability”. 

Unlimited suitability? That implies that the e-tron GT can do anything, like the Messiah. We’ve driven it and, without giving the game away, it’s good. Very good. But Jesus? Nah, it’s not quite the second coming.

Oh, and in case you need a bit more convincing that the Audi e-tron GT is a serious bit of kit, underneath it’s basically a Porsche Taycan, which is our current favourite performance car and one of its chief rivals. The Tesla Model S is another.

Read on through this review to find out how we rate the e-tron GT in terms of performance, interior quality, passenger space, running costs and more. We'll let you know how it compares with those rivals and others, and which version we reckon is the pick of the range.

We might even be able to save you a few thousands pounds next time you buy a new car of any make and model. Simply search our free What Car? New Car Buying service to find some of the best prices currently available. It's a great place to discover the most tempting new electric car deals.

FAQs

  • The E-tron GT wasn’t in the 2022 What Car? Reliability Survey, but Audi came 21st out of 32 car makers rated. The E-tron GT comes with a three-year/60,000-mile Audi warranty, with separate eight-year/100,000-mile cover for the main battery. Read more here

  • The ‘entry-level’ E-tron GT has the longest official range at 298 miles, but when we tested the real world range we determined it to be around 230 miles during a mix of town, A-road and motorway driving. The high-performance E-tron GT RS has a shorter official range of 283 miles. Read more here

  • We recommend the E-tron GT, which isn’t quite as quick as the RS but still does 0-62mph in 4.1sec (we clocked it doing 0-60mph in 3.9sec at our private test track) and has a longer range. Equipment levels are high, so we don’t see any need to go beyond the entry-level e-tron GT. Read more here

  • Euro NCAP hasn’t crash-tested the E-tron GT, but the related Porsche Taycan scored five stars. The list of standard safety kit includes automatic emergency braking (AEB) and lane-keeping assistance, with blind-spot monitoring offered as a worthwhile option. Read more here

  • The E-tron’s rear boot has a volume of 405 litres, which was big enough to take six carry-on suitcases when we tried it out. There’s also an additional 85 litre boot under the front bonnet which is large enough for an additional carry-on case or to house your charging cables. Read more here
