If anything, the forthcoming Audi RS E-Tron GT will be blazing speedy and it’s speed transmission can be compared with the Porsche Tayca with both vehicle having some similarities such as the former producing a 590 horsepower and being able to reach 60 mph under just 3.5 seconds.
The vehicle is scheduled to be released by the summer of 2021 which will be a good schedule for the company considering the competitive market of EV nowadays which is becoming pretty fierce.
While the car is said to be priced at about US$130K, the vehicle is expected to take a different path to success because the previous R8 E-Tron was a flop in the market which made Audi’s entrance into the EV market doubtful but as different companies are being encouraged to reduce their carbon emission, the company’s retrial would be a good one.
But one of the contributory factors to the failure of the previous R8 E-Tron is due to the exorbitant asking price tag Audi stamped on the vehicle and to be precise, US$1 million might be too much.

While the new RS E-Tron GT is slightly faster than the R8 E-Tron, the difference in their performance is the latter being able to reach 0-60 mph under 3.9 seconds which is pretty fast although the former is slightly faster at 2.88 seconds when its maxed out.
Also the RS E-Tron GT is going to be slightly heavier than the R8 E-Tron and would weigh about 4,600 pounds and sport dual motor Quattro-equipped configuration which is all electric.
