Audi RS e-tron GT – electric quattro and recuperation


The e-tron GT quattro and the RS e-tron GT usually drive with electric all-wheel drive, only the “efficiency” mode of the Audi drive select dynamic handling system prioritizing the front-wheel drive. In event of a slippery road surface, high power requirements, or fast cornering, the electric motor for rear-wheel drive is also activated here, and around five times faster than with a mechanical quattro drivetrain. The electric all-wheel drive regulates the drive torque distribution between the axles – continuously, fully variably, and within a few thousandths of a second. The quattro principle of the four-wheel drive that Audi introduced to the market more than 40 years ago presents itself on a new, fascinating technological level. When the driver releases the right-hand pedal, the drive usually switches to sailing, allowing the gran turismo to glide with elegance and efficiency. By contrast, the car recuperates in overrun mode in the “dynamic” mode of Audi drive select.

  • Audi e-tron GT experience - Audi RS e-tron GT Interior Design in Studio

    Sportiness and sustainability do not contradict each other; in combination, they characterize the understanding of luxury in the course of electric mobility at Audi. The e-tron GT proves this with its leather-free design package. The sport seats plus with 14-way adjustment are upholstered either with a combination of artificial leather and the Kaskade material or with a mixture of artificial leather and the microfiber material Dinamica. Recycled materials are used in both cases, for example polyester fibers that were made from old plastic bottles, or textiles, or residual fibers from selvages. There are 119 recycled plastic bottles in each Kaskade upholstery set. The Dinamica material is similar to Alcantara, while the Kaskade material, whose seam design is based on the look of the Singleframe, is reminiscent of natural fibers such as wool.The upholstery of the sport seats pro is made of a combination of two types of leather. The RS design package comprises microfiber material on the hood of the instrument panel carrier, the steering wheel, and the center console trim, with red or gray stitching adding highlights. The floor carpet and floor mats are made from Econyl in both models. This material consists of 100-percent recycled nylon fibers from production waste, fabric and carpet remnants, or old fishing nets.

    Eleven antennas, all of them are invisibly integrated into the car, connect the e-tron GT with the outside world. They receive and transmit audio, LTE, Bluetooth, and GPS signals, and thereby connect the fully electric gran turismo to the environment and its owner in many different ways.

  • Audi e-tron GT experience - Audi RS e-tron GT Aerodynamics & Aeroacoustics

    Aerodynamics isn’t just the means to an end in the e-tron GT but rather an important design feature. The design of the e-tron GT with its drag coefficient of 0.24 looks as if it was shaped by the wind – and it is. It was developed in close collaboration between designers and aerodynamics engineers. The air inlets in the lower section in the front play an important role. The upright air curtains on the outside guide the air into the wheel arches in such a way that it flows close to the wheel and then along the side. Most rims feature light blades that are just 2 to 3 millimeters (0.08–0.12 in) thick. This covering further increases the aerodynamic efficiency.
