What’s new for the 2023 Audi E-Tron GT?
In its second year, the E-Tron GT gets minor exterior updates and a reshuffle of its standard features and options packages. Otherwise, the two versions, E-Tron GT and performance-oriented RS E-Tron GT, carry over mostly unchanged. The E-Tron line is based on the same platform as its VW Group cousin, the Porsche Taycan.

The E-Tron’s styling is close to the concept version that Audi introduced in 2018. It’s beautiful, with elegant proportions and dazzling details. This year, the grille changes from dark gray to body color, but still draws the eye up over the long hood and toward the graceful greenhouse, while wide fenders at the rear give a racy look. The roof flows into a fastback-like rear end, though it’s actually a conventional trunk that reveals the cargo area.
The cabin’s styling is more along the lines of Audi tradition, with an understated yet upscale look, familiar switches and screens, and quality materials.
A pair of displays mount the dash, measuring 12.3 inches for the information gauges and 10.1 inches for the infotainment touchscreen. Materials, fit, and finish are all fantastic. While the E-Tron GT gets a panoramic glass sunroof, the RS gets a carbon-fiber roof that can be swapped out for the glass at no charge. Despite the E-Tron GT’s size, backseat space is tight because of the raked rear roofline.
Both versions get a dual-motor powertrain with all-wheel drive, juiced by a 93.4-kwh battery pack. A 2-speed gearbox drives the rear motor, generally smooth except there’s a moment of transition under heavy load. The E-Tron GT is rated for 496 hp and 464 lb-ft of torque, bumped up to 590 hp and 612 lb-ft in the RS E-Tron GT. Those numbers enable the E-Tron GT to scoot to 60 mph in 3.9 seconds; the RS shaves that time to 3.1 seconds.
The EPA’s range for the E-Tron GT is an impressive 238 miles, and the RS model comes in slightly behind at a still-competitive 232 miles.
Audi includes automatic forward emergency braking, lane departure warning, and front and rear parking sensors. For options, consider adding adaptive cruise control and a surround-view camera system.
