2022 Audi RS e-tron GT makes US debut in Malibu

With an 800-volt electrical architecture, the e-tron GT comes standard with the ability to charge at 270 kW using public DC fast-chargers.

The new 2022 Audi RS e-tron GT made its U.S. debut in April in Malibu, California, at the Cars and Coffee gathering.

The e-tron GT produces 469 HP, or up to 522 HP with overboost for 2.5 seconds with launch control, and 464 lb-ft of torque (472 lb-ft with overboost). This allows the e-tron GT to repeatedly accelerate from 0 to 60 MPH in 3.9 seconds on the way to a top track speed of 152 mph, the company says.

The RS e-tron GT produces a net 590 HP and up to 637 HP with overboost. Total system torque is 612 lb-ft. As a result, the RS e-tron GT can accelerate from 0 to 60 MPH in 3.1 seconds and has a 155-MPH top track speed. That places the acceleration of RS e-tron GT on par with the V10-powered Audi R8 supercar – all while generating zero direct emissions.

With an 800-volt electrical architecture, the e-tron GT comes standard with the ability to charge at 270 kW using public DC fast-chargers. This allows it to replenish its battery from 5% to 80% in about 22.5 minutes. Preliminary manufacturer’s estimated ranges based on approximation of EPA test cycles for a full charge are 238 miles for the e-tron GT and 232 miles for the RS e-tron GT. EPA estimates are not yet available at this time.

The e-tron GT is expected to arrive in U.S. dealerships this summer.
