Audi reveals 2025 e-Tron GT, S and RS Performance variants
Audi refreshes the e-Tron GT. After the Porsche Taycan’s comprehensive mid-cycle update earlier this year, it makes sense that its sister model would follow the same path. The 2025 RS e-Tron GT benefits from numerous improvements, offering more power, increased charging speed and better range. Fans of this four-door Gran Turismo will now be able to choose between three distinct versions: the S e-Tron GT, the RS e-Tron GT, and the flagship model, the RS e-Tron GT Performance.

The new variants of the e-Tron GT series combine progressive design with innovative technology, each featuring a distinctive look. For example, the new e-Tron GT embodies elegant sportiness according to Audi, with a homogeneous and expressive front end. A black mask surrounds the Singleframe specific to the e-Tron models, while relief structures provide precise three-dimensionality to the grille. A body-colored paint strip above the Singleframe adds an even sportier touch to the Gran Turismo. The air curtains, optimizing airflow around the front wheels, are more streamlined. At the rear, an elegantly designed aerodynamic diffuser with vertical fins dominates the scene.

The new Audi RS e-Tron GT now has an even sportier appearance. The front has a much more radical look with an inverted Singleframe and a 3D honeycomb structure typical of RS models. The apron framing the black mask gives the impression that the RS e-Tron is lower, appearing to swoop down the road thanks to the functional L-shaped blades. At the rear, the RS e-Tron GT incorporates elements inspired by motorsport, reinforcing its dynamic character.

The Audi RS e-Tron GT Performance is the first fully electric RS Performance model. It stands out with unique design elements, including an optional matte and dark carbon roof, as well as carbon camouflage elements also optional. These elements, a first for Audi, are exclusive to the RS Performance. Carbon camouflage is applied to the relief structures of the bumpers, door trims, parts of the diffuser and side mirrors.

Up to 925 hp of power for the 2025 e-Tron

The interior of this German sports car features new seats, a new steering wheel, redesigned entry thresholds, as well as updated digital content. The light projection from the door has also been changed: a red diamond with a red shadow appears when the driver’s door opens, while the S version displays a white diamond with a red shadow. New natural linear anthracite birch wood inlays are available for the e-Tron GT family, and for the RS e-Tron GT Performance they are also available in matte carbon camouflage to match the exterior. New interior features include applications in Vanadium, an anthracite-colored effect finish that changes depending on lighting. These apps are optional for the S e-Tron GT and standard on RS models.

On the technical side, permanent magnet synchronous motors (PSM) are used on the front axle of the S e-Tron GT and RS e-Tron GT models, each developing an output of 176 kilowatts (kW – 239 hp). Additionally, the RS e-Tron GT Performance benefits from modified power electronics on the front axle, with a revised pulse inverter for even higher discharge currents. All three variants are more efficient, while offering significant power increases and better acceleration. The newly developed electric motor on the rear axle is also a permanent magnet synchronous motor (PSM). It is the same size as the PSM of the RS e-Tron GT and RS e-Tron GT Performance, with an axial length of 192 mm and a diameter of 230 mm. Some parts, including the motor, come from Premium Platform Electric (PPE). Each electric motor offers an output of 415 kW (564 hp) and has power reserves for extreme driving situations. The maximum total power of the S e-Tron GT’s drive system is 500 kW (679 hp), while the RS e-Tron GT reaches 630 kW (856 hp). The RS e-Tron GT Performance delivers 680 kW (925 hp), making it the most powerful production car Audi has ever built. not
