The Audi e-tron GT is a battery electric executive car produced by Audi since late 2020 as part of the e-tron battery electric sub-brand, and the third fully electric car model, after Q8 e-tron and Q8 e-tron Sportback SUVs. Based on the J1 platform shared with the Porsche Taycan, the car went on sale in March 2021.
The Audi e-tron GT concept prototype was unveiled in November 2018 in 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show, followed by 2019 Geneva Motor Show.
In November 2020, Audi released photographs of what was basically the production model, in a characteristic black and gray veneer with orange accents and overlays on the alloy wheels. The production Audi e-tron GT extensively recreated the design of the concept car, with muscular wheel arches, aggressively styled headlights, and a large hexagonal radiator grille imitation. The gently sloping roofline ends with one-piece taillights connected by a luminous strip. Unlike the concept, the production car has visible door handles.
The car shares technical components with the related Porsche Taycan. 40 percent of its parts are identical to those used in the Taycan, and the cars share the same platform. Just like the Taycan, it is a 4-door sedan despite the sporty coupé-style silhouette.
The vehicle was unveiled in 2021 IAA motor show.
Pre-order of European models began in mid-February 2021, and went on sale in 2021-05-03.
The fully electric driveline of the Audi e-tron GT is powered by a battery with 84 kWh of net capacity (93.4 kWh of gross capacity) as well as two electric motors providing all-wheel drive. The vehicle accelerates from 0–100 km/h (0–62 mph) in 4.1 seconds, reaches a top speed of 245 km/h (152 mph) and has a maximum sustained power output of 350 kW (469 hp), which can be temporarily boosted to 390 kW (523 hp).
The official EPA range of the vehicle on a single charge is 383 km (238 mi). In tests performed by the automotive website Edmunds, the car surpassed its EPA rating, achieving 439 km (273 mi).
Audi has also introduced a more sporty RS version which accelerates from 0–100 km/h (0–62 mph) in 3.3 seconds, reaches a top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph) and has a power output of 440 kW (590 hp) that is temporarily raised to 475 kW (637 hp) when boost mode is selected.
Unveiled in March 2023, the Audi RS E-tron GT Project_513/2 is a special edition for the US market limited to 75 units, with its design taking inspiration from a prototype and featuring red accents and an e-tron camouflage script.
Preparation of production at Böllinger Höfe plant started in 2019, and started in December 2020. Unlike the e-tron and e-tron Sportback models manufactured in Belgium, it is the first Audi electric car to be produced in Audi's home country Germany, at the Heilbronn plant. Audi officially unveiled the production e-tron GT on 9 February 2021 with sales started in March 2021.
In December 2022, Bloomberg suggested the e-tron GT as good option for those consumers upset by Elon Musk's behavior who would instead consider the Model S by Tesla.

In the 2019 superhero film Avengers: Endgame, Tony Stark drove a black Audi e-tron GT. At the time of filming, the car was still a concept and Marvel Studios commissioned Audi to manufacture a prototype specifically for the film. For this prototype, Audi developed a digitally-generated sound for the car, as the filmmakers requested that the car needed to make a sound to support the drama of the scene it appeared in. Robert Downey Jr., who plays Tony Stark, also drove the prototype to the film's premiere.
