All electric cars are much cheaper to run than comparable combustion-engined models, but when you get to expensive premium cars like the e-tron GT, insurance can be pretty expensive and private buyers need to factor in depreciation rates, too. Nonetheless, generally ultra-low running costs are one of the huge upsides to choosing electric over petrol or diesel power at this end of the market.

Audi e-tron GT insurance group

No matter which version of the e-tron GT you pick, your premium will be calculated based on the highest of the insurance industry's 50 vehicle groupings. This is hardly surprising when you consider the e-tron GT is such an expensive, advanced and high-performance car, and it's the one area where costs are likely to match or exceed those for an equivalent combustion-engined model.

Warranty

The e-tron GT is covered by the same standard manufacturer warranty as all of Audi's petrol and diesel-engined models; this lasts for three years or 60,000 miles – whichever comes sooner. Additionally, the e-tron GT's battery is guaranteed against its performance degrading for eight years or 100,000 miles, whichever comes first.

Servicing

Exact servicing details for the e-tron GT haven't been firmed up yet, but it's almost certain to be cheaper to maintain than a comparable high-performance petrol-engined S or RS model from the Audi stable.

Road tax

Like all pure-electric cars, the Audi e-tron is liable for zero road tax (VED) right now – although that may change in future. Company-car drivers running fully electric models are no longer completely exempt from Benefit-in-Kind (BiK) tax, but it's levied at just 1% during the 2021/22 financial year, rising to only 2% for the following 12 months.
