Audi did not announce a price for the production version of the e-tron GT concept, but it will likely compete against Tesla's Model S sedan, which starts at $78,000. The Model S has a maximum range of 335 miles and a top 0-60 mph speed of 2.5 seconds.

The e-tron GT concept follows Audi's e-tron electric SUV, which the automaker will begin delivering to US customers in the second quarter of 2019. The e-tron will seat five, have two motors, and feature an all-wheel-drive configuration in its standard trim, according to Audi. The automaker has said it will have a range of around 248 miles, based on the European testing cycle, though it has not yet been tested by the US Environment Protection Agency.

In addition, Audi says the e-tron will have a top speed of 124 mph, a 0-60 mph time of 5.5 seconds, and a 95 kWh battery that will be able to get an 80% charge in around 30 minutes when using certain DC fast-chargers.
