2021 Audi e-tron GT Comes in Spring 2021: 99% the Same As the Show Car

2021 Audi e-tron GT Comes in Spring 2021: 99% the Same As the Show Car

The production car will be almost identical to the concept car unveiled at the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show.

The only differences are the door handles added and the glowing emblems removed, according to Audi’s Head of Design Marc Lichte.

Inside, the road version of the model will be 95 percent the same as the show car with its driver-centric design. A dual display, such as the current A7 and A8 have, will be in the e-tron GT too.

Audi will start production of the e-tron Gran Turismo early next year. In spring, it will be reaching dealer showrooms.

The 2021 Audi e-tron GT rides on the Porsche Taycan’s J1 platform. Audi and Porsche will eventually use the jointly developed modular Premium Platform Electric (PPE).

An interesting aspect of that architecture is Audi’s push for automation via its Project Artemis. That program includes development of a 2024 electric SUV for Audi, Bentley and Porsche – to take on Tesla.
