A large battery and up-to-date charging technology mean big road trips are easily achievable in the Audi e-tron GT, with the caveat that its range will probably drop quite a bit if driven hard. Also, charging stations that allow you to take full advantage of its maximum replenishment rate are few and far between in the UK right now.

Audi e-tron GT range

Whether you choose the e-tron GT quattro or RS e-tron GT, you get the same 93kWh battery, with an 85kWh useable capacity. Translated to driving range on a single charge, that works out at up to 298 miles for the e-tron GT quattro or 283 miles for the more powerful RS e-tron GT. Driving the e-tron GT like the sporty car it is could see those figures reduced somewhat, but they should be achievable in gentle cruising or urban driving.

Charge time

Like its Porsche Taycan sister model, the Audi e-tron GT incorporates the latest 800-volt charging capability, which means a maximum recharge rate of 270kW. At that speed, the battery can be topped up from 10 to 80% capacity in a shade more than 20 minutes – although there are only a handful of charging stations in the UK capable of delivering power that quickly.

More commonly found 100 or 150kW units will do the same job in 30-40 minutes. Ultimately, the excellent Tesla Supercharger network (which Audi e-tron GT drivers can't use) still gives the Tesla Model S the upper hand here when it comes to everyday usability.
