Introduction

What Car? says...

What is the Audi E-tron GT, exactly? 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 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.

The problem is there’s a veritable onslaught of new electric cars being fired into the market faster than electrons out of a Tesla Supercharger. It’s harder than ever to keep up to speed, so if you’re feeling like a GCSE physics student who’s wandered haplessly into a lecture on Stephen Hawking’s spacetime theory, you’ve come to the right place to make sense of this brave new world.

The Audi E-tron GT is an all-electric performance car. There are two versions – the extremely fast one is called the E-tron GT, while the warp-speed version is called the RS E-tron GT. Both are mean-looking and, more objectively, they’re low and wide, because they’ve been designed to handle brilliantly.

They also have boots as well as rear seats suitable for adults, so they’re usable transport, not just toys. Oh, and in case you need a bit more convincing that the E-tron GT is a serious bit of kit, underneath it’s basically a Porsche Taycan, which is our current favourite performance car.

Hopefully that’s caught your imagination as capably as the E-tron GT's carpets once caught fish (no, we haven't gone mad; the GT is full of nods to sustainability and the carpets really are made of recycled nylon from old fishing nets).

We might even be able to save you a few quid; our New Car Buying service will help you find a multitude of great deals on most new cars.
