In the latest teaser, released just 48 hours before the launch takes place, Audi showcased some of the design elements of the upcoming e-Tron GT four-door coupe. It showcases the electric car's sloping roofline and broad shoulder line along with the signature LED headlights and tail-lights.

Audi e-Tron GT standard model is equipped with an 85 kWh lithium-ion battery pack and powered by a 475hp electric motor generating 630 Nm of peak torque. It can hit a top speed of 245 kmph and sprint from zero to 100 kmph in just over four seconds.

The RS trim which draws power from a similar-sized battery pack, can produce 598 hp of maximum power and 830 Nm of peak torque. It is slightly faster and more powerful to the standard model with a top speed of 250 kmph and the ability to run from zero to 100 kmph in 3.3 seconds.

The standard e-Tron GT model has a claimed range of 488 kms on single charge, while the more powerful RS version reportedly gets 472 kms out of a single recharge.

Inside, the Audi e-Tron GT will come with a 10.1-inch touchscreen infotainment system, a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster and shift-by-wire gear technology.

When launched, the GT version of the Audi e-Tron will sit above some of the other luxury electric vehicles like the Mercedes EQC and Jaguar I-Pace. It is likely to take on the upcoming Porsche Taycan electric.
