The Audi e-tron GT wins Electric Vehicle of the Year at AM Awards

Audi e-tron GT

The winner of the AM-reader voted Electric Vehicle of the Year 2022 AM Award is the Audi e-tron GT

Blurring the lines between a sensible electric saloon and high-performance supercar, the e-tron GT is Audi’s flagship electric model that’s designed to give us a flavour of what’s to come from the German car maker over the next few years.

It started life as a concept car, making production just three years after its initial unveil at the Los Angeles Auto Show. The car’s development was completed alongside that of the Porsche Taycan, with both cars sharing a platform and core hardware.

Key to the e-tron GT’s performance and efficiency is aerodynamic body, which incorporates active elements such as the rear spoiler and front cooling ducts. The low roof and wide track give a unique, eye-catching look.

Two versions of the e-tron GT are offered: the 530PS Quattro and the 646PS RS. Both utilise an 800-volt electrical infrastructure, enabling a rapid charging time of 23 minutes (5% to 80%) and the ability to add 62 miles worth of range in just five minutes.

Performance is equally rapid, with the 0-62mph sprint taking four seconds in the Quattro and a little more than three in the RS.

The Quattro has a maximum range of almost 300 miles, while the RS can cover 283 miles, officially. Both models can achieve more than 200 miles per charge, in real-world driving.

Audi’s familiar switchgear can be found on the inside, where the cabin provides seating for five. Build quality and equipment levels are high, as expected from a car costing upwards of £82,000.

The latest AM industry special issue

The complexity of running a modern dealership can be misunderstood easily by people looking in on our industry.

Any general manager has so many plates to spin, and they must foster a talented team that they can rely on to not just do the basics well, but to sprinkle some magic on top that customers can notice.

If the marketplace in 2023 is steadily returning to relative normality, this normality now includes the drive to find customers for an increasing supply of electric vehicles, and the need to source used cars from all channels and market them carefully. And of course there are the desires to delight consumers with an omnichannel experience and to hold on to decent margins after a couple of years of strong profitability.

The expectations of both the customer and the business’s stakeholder must be achieved to the optimum level.

In this special digital publication, industry experts, prominent suppliers and franchised dealers share their insights on the major aspects required in running a modern dealership well.
