Audi did not announce a price for the production version of the E-Tron GT concept, but it is likely to compete against Tesla’s Model S sedan, which starts at $US78,000. The Model S has a maximum range of 335 miles and a top 0-60 speed of 2.5 seconds.

The E-Tron GT concept follows Audi’s E-Tron electric SUV, which the automaker is expected to begin delivering to US customers in the second quarter of 2019. That vehicle will seat five and feature an all-wheel-drive configuration in its standard trim, according to Audi. The automaker said its range – also of about 248 miles – was based on the European testing cycle, though it has not yet been tested by the US Environmental Protection Agency.

Here’s a closer look at Audi’s E-Tron GT concept.
