Default 2021 Audi E-Tron GT electric car revealed in leaked images

Audi s long- and hotly-anticipated rival to the Tesla Model S has surfaced online in its showroom form

The upcoming Audi E-Tron GT electric sedan has surfaced on social media this week, ahead of a debut set for 11pm (AEDT) on February 9.

These images, first published on Spanish car enthusiast community Cochespias, reveal our first proper look at the showroom-ready E-Tron GT since it appeared as a concept in 2018.

A number of teasers and technical details have been offered in the time since its show-car debut, including confirmation that the top-shelf RS model will be powered by a 440kW/830Nm electric system that will power the hero variant to 100km/h in less than 3.5 seconds , thanks to a 475kW output in overboost mode. (Read our RS E-Tron GT review here.)

This pales in comparison to the new Plaid variants in the most recently updated Tesla Model S range, however, which promise 0-100km/h times from 3.2 seconds and right down to less than 2.0 seconds.

Still, it remains to be seen where Audi will price the RS E-Tron GT, although were expecting a number around $180,000 before on-road costs.

By comparison, the cheapest Model S Plaid is priced at around $215,815 drive-away, with the Plaid+ at around $237,970 drive-away (both prices based on registration in Victoria).

We could also see Audi affix its familiar Performance badge on an even more powerful version of the RS if it feels compelled at all to compete with Tesla on acceleration.

Driving range for the E-Tron at least in RS form is expected to come in at around 400 kilometres on the tough WLTP test cycle, thanks to an 83.7kWh (93kWh gross) battery pack.

Australian timing for the E-Tron GT is still to be made official, but a late 2021 market debut is expected.
