With a certain elegance despite its imposing appearance, the rear is reminiscent of the Taycan, with tapered optics to the light signature in the form of arrows going inward and connected by a LED strip that spreads over its entire width.

Composed of a multi-material body for its body, leaving much to carbon and aluminum, the future Audi electric sedan borrows some of its technology from the Porsche Taycan. Its propulsion is provided by two electric motors, one on each axle, making the e-tron GT concept a four-wheel drive. The torque will be transmitted via a permanent electric transmission, assisted by a Torque Vectoring system for an ideal distribution of torque.
