Audi E-tron GT Set for Mid-Lifecycle Update

The Audi e-tron GT is set to undergo a mid-lifecycle update, following in the footsteps of the Porsche Taycan, which shares its platform. While the exterior changes are subtle, with a prototype showcased without camouflage, significant upgrades are anticipated beneath the surface.

The prototype of the Audi e-tron GT revealed a few exterior tweaks, including revised front intakes, a slightly different grille cover, a redesigned rear diffuser, and new aero-optimised alloy wheels. However, the most notable enhancements are expected to be in its performance and technology.

Following the pattern of the recently updated Porsche Taycan, the e-tron GT is likely to feature more potent electric motors and faster charging capabilities, potentially reaching up to 320 kWh compared to the current 270 kWh. Some variants might also offer a larger 105 kWh battery pack for extended range.

The lineup is expected to include a new RS Performance trim, surpassing the power output of the outgoing RS e-tron GT but falling short of the impressive figures of the Porsche Taycan Turbo S.

Moreover, a new active suspension system with hydraulic actuators, similar to the Porsche Active Ride, is anticipated. This system promises to enhance both comfort and driving dynamics, offering drivers a wider range of adjustment capabilities and driving modes.

While Audi has not provided a specific debut date for the updated e-tron GT family, it is anticipated to be unveiled in the coming weeks or months, bringing a blend of performance, technology, and refinement to the electric vehicle market.
