The Audi e-tron GT is now available to order in Europe. The electric Gran Turismo is only available with all-wheel drive in two performance levels. Prices for the Audi e-tron GT quattro start at €99,800 and prices for the RS e-tron GT start at €138,200.
The prices for Germany were already revealed when the vehicle was unveiled in February 2021, but at the time, the electric car was not yet available to order – which is now possible. Only one pre-sale began in mid-February. Audi has not yet said how many pre-orders have been received since then.
With the start of orders, the e-tron GT is also listed in the configurator on the Audi website. For example, only Ibis white is available as a free plain paint finish, metallic and pearl-effect paints cost 1,050 euros extra. 19-inch wheels in Aero design are available ex-works, 20-inch wheels cost between 1,000 and 1,750 euros, 21-inch wheels between 2,750 and 3,500 euros.
Ex-works, the e-tron GT comes with LED headlights “with preparation for further light functions”. The customer can either have the matrix LED function activated directly when ordering for 1,540 euros or the laser light for 2,890 euros – or owners can add it later as a “function on demand”.
Compared to the standard sports seats, two further options can be booked for the interior (sports seats plus for 1,990 euros or sports seats pro for 3,890 euros); a leather-free interior costs 600 euros extra.
When it comes to charging equipment, the e-tron GT comes ex-works with the “e-tron charging system compact” and a Mode 3 charging cable. The “e-tron charging system connect” is available for an additional 1,270 euros. Both solutions can be adapted to different sockets using adapters. However, the more expensive “connect” version enables, among other things, separate recording of charging processes for private and business journeys – an interesting function when billing the employer. The announced optional 22 kW onboard charger is not yet listed in the configurator.
Audi has put together several assistance system packages, such as City, Parking or Tour, which combine suitable systems. Some functions, such as the head-up display, the night vision assistant or ambient cameras, are offered individually.
With the RS e-tron GT, the surcharge policy is broadly in line with the more civilian model (for example, with the paint finishes). However, the sports version can be further individualised, for example, with a carbon roof for 3,750 euros or the “glossy carbon optics package” for 4,300 euros. Here, however, 20-inch rims are standard. The surcharges for the other designs in 20 and 21 inches are lower.
The RS e-tron GT also comes with some chassis features not available on the Audi e-tron GT. For example, the steel brakes with tungsten carbide coating for 500 euros or the ceramic brake system for at least 5,600 euros – here, customers can still choose the colour of the brake callipers. In the interior, there are RS-specific design packages; the choice of different sports seats is omitted here.
