Audi Sport’s legendary performance reaches new heights with the Audi RS e-tron GT, the brand’s fastest-charging, all-electric grand tourer. Striking design meets scintillating performance in this ground-breaking new model that ushers in an exciting new generation of RS vehicles to inspire the imagination anew.
A new kind of power.
The famed RS moniker has always stood for high-performance, but the RS e-tron GT takes that to new levels with its stunning all-electric drivetrain. With 440kW of power (up to 475kW in boost mode) and a massive 830Nm of torque going down to the road through the sublime electric quattro system, performance needs to be experienced to be fully appreciated.
Acceleration is simply breathtaking with the RS e-tron GT hitting 100km/h from rest in just 3.3 seconds. But straight-line speed is more than matched by sublime handling. The perfect weight distribution, air suspension, and all-wheel steering as well as the electronically variable rear axle differential lock with torque vectoring ensure a formidable combination.
Braking is more than up to the task posed by the performance, with standard advanced tungsten carbide brakes providing extraordinary stopping power, while those seeking even greater levels of performance, optional carbon ceramic brakes provide even greater stopping power and performance, no matter the demands placed upon them.

The sound of “e”
Every detail of the RS e-tron GT has been painstakingly designed and engineered to perfection, and the unique sound of the car is no exception. Designed in the Audi sound laboratory to give the silent electric motors an audible presence, Audi engineers have given the RS e-tron GT a thrilling signature sound that can be adjusted via the Audi drive select system to the desired intensity.
Beautifully proportioned, elegant and yet with an unmistakably performance air, the RS e-tron GT signals the future of Audi performance design. With a drag coefficient of just 0.24, its design is not just visually arresting but provides the optimal aerodynamic shape for both performance and maximum range. Even the striking wheels play a role aesthetically and in the vehicle’s performance - their unique production method using low-CO2 emission aluminium producing supremely attractive, performance wheels that are perfectly in keeping with the entire ethos of the RS e-tron GT.
A new lighting concept
The RS e-tron GT takes light technology to the next level, both in terms of its practical application and even incorporated into the very design of this striking new model.
From the piercing ‘eyes’ of the front headlight arrangement that feature Audi laser light technology, to the animated light strip stretching across the full width of the rear, light technology plays an integral role.
Next generation interior
The RS e-tron GT takes the brand’s reputation for stunning interior design and execution to completely new levels. Even with its low-slung design and tapering roofline, the interior is such that there is abundant space for all five occupants – the floor configuration of the all-electric grand tourer allowing generous leg and headroom even for tall passengers in the rear seats.
Up front, RS sport seats, complete with ventilation and four-way lumbar adjustment are swathed in premium fine Nappa leather with distinctive RS stitching. Nappa leather likewise adorns the centre console, upper dash area and door armrests, while inlays throughout the interior are in matte carbon. The colour interior ambient lighting allows you to change the very mood of the RS e-tron GT’s interior at will, while touches like the illuminated door sill trims with Audi Sport emblems all point to the car’s exclusive character.
Leading-edge charging options
In keeping with the performance nature of the RS e-tron GT, battery charging is state-of-the-art to keep you on the road with the minimum of downtime. With up to 270kW high power Direct Current (DC) charging capacity, at suitable ultra-fast public charging stations, every five minutes of charging adds up to 100km of range^. At these charging stations just over 22 minutes is all that is required to charge a battery from five percent to 80 percent capacity* – and with up to 488 kilometres of range available from a full charge^, the RS e-tron GT is a grand tourer in the true sense.
