Audi’s latest electric sedans pack serious power.

Powering the base e-tron GT are two electric motors producing a combined 469 hp. Jumping up to the more powerful RS variant bumps the net output to 590 hp. An overboost function, available on both models, bumps the e-tron GT up to 522 hp and the RS e-tron GT to 637 hp. Audi says these potent powertrains will rocket the base GT to 60 mph from a dead stop in 3.9-seconds—3.1-seconds with the RS variant. The top speed is capped at 152 and 155 respectively.

These unquestionably quick EV sedans should impress your neighbors with their performance, but there’s always more to a high-end sedan than just how quick it is. Audi wants you to rocket up to speed comfortably. While it looks like the seats are leather, Audi notes the standard car is leather-free. Customers can upgrade to Dinamica or Alcantara for an extra cost.

A standard three-chamber air suspension keeps your coffee stable at speed. According to Audi, this suspension can firm up when you need to tackle a racetrack, softens when you need to commute to work. All-wheel steering is standard on all e-tron models.

Audi says these new EVs come with a 93.4 kWh battery pack, which should translate to a roughly 238-mile range for the e-tron GT and 232 miles for the RS variant.
