2022 Audi RS e-tron GT Overview
The electric vehicle revolution is upon us, and it’s being led by premium European brands. As part of Volkswagen’s sprawling automotive empire, Audi benefits from shared tech, some of which drove the awe-inspiring Porsche Taycan to market in 2020. The fruits of that shared tech, for Audi at least, are a pair of new high-performance EVs. The first is the e-tron GT, but we’re here to talk about the top-dog RS e-Tron GT.
New for 2022, the RS e-tron GT is a Taycan in all but name, but those underpinnings bring breathtaking power and acceleration numbers. The car is powered by dual electric motors and a two-speed transmission, along with a 93.4-kilowatt-hour battery. Output from that system lands at 637 horsepower and 612 pound-feet of torque, which is good enough for the RS to hit 60 mph from a standstill in just 3.1 seconds, per Audi.
The RS e-tron GT checks in with a hefty curb weight of 5,139 pounds, but should offer strong braking with its ceramic brakes. The EPA has not yet certified Audi’s range estimations, but the car should return somewhere around 232 miles on a single charge. The RS e-tron GT features two charging ports, with the passenger-side port featuring a DC connector that can quick-charge the battery to 80 percent in just 20 minutes.
The RS e-tron GT’s cabin features artificial piped-in engine sounds, but is otherwise all Audi luxury and tech. A 12.3-inch screen in the gauge cluster runs Audi’s Virtual Cockpit system, which can be configured to display maps and other vehicle information. The center stack is crowned by a 10.1-inch infotainment screen that offers wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Elsewhere, the interior features tactile climate and gear controls, along with Dinamica synthetic suede, but the car will be available with several Nappa leather options at launch.
The 2022 Audi RS E-Tron GT and its counterpart, the E-Tron GT, are slated to go on sale sometime in summer 2021. Pricing details for options and features haven’t been released yet, but the cars themselves will start at $99,000 for the standard E-Tron GT and $139,000 for the RS E-Tron GT.
