Audi's prestigious electric vehicle, the e-Tron GT, is currently the most stylish and highest quality EV under Audi's name. Every e-Tron GT is custom-made in the production line of the company's Böllinger Höfe factory in Germany, along with its legendary sports car R8. With the factory’s high quality control standards, the overall production build and quality of the e-Tron GT should be quite impressive.
On August 11, Audi Taiwan announced that it has sold out its entire pre-sales quota for the e-Tron GT for 2021. According to the company, those who do not want to miss the opportunity to get the car in 2022 will need to hurry up and preorder it as soon as possible.
Audi Taiwan is determined to revamp the entire Audi brand in 2021, and it will be making a stronger push towards the EV market after it launches its final series of internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles in 2026.
The interest in Audi's all-electric e-tron GT sports car may have been fueled by its design, which is believed to be the most attractive among Audi's EV series. After Audi Taiwan began to allow customers to preorder at the end of June amid the level 3 COVID-19 alert, the pre-order quota for the vehicle, which had been limited to 50 units in Taiwan, had sold out within a month. The strong pre-order sales prompted Audi Taiwan to seek permission from the Audi headquarters to release the pre-order quota for the year 2022 ahead of time. As of now, Audi Taiwan has yet to confirm the number of e-Tron GTs that would be approved by the headquarters.
When overseas YouTubers tested out the performance of the e-Tron GT, it had a WLTP range that was anything but ordinary. At an average speed of 90 kilometers per hour, its range can reach 490 kilometers. With a performance like that, it is clear that the e-Tron GT is designed not just for recreational purposes, but also for long distance and high speed driving.
Audi Taiwan estimates that the first group of pre-ordered e-Tron GT will be delivered as early as the end of 2021. By then, we should be able to see e-Tron GT's striking images on the streets.
