Audi has opened bookings for the e-tron GT in India. The German carmaker is likely to offer both the GT as well as the RS variants of the electric sedan.

The e-tron GT is a 4-door coupe. The car is built using lightweight materials which include a combination of aluminium, high-strength steel and even carbon fibre.

On the inside, the e-tron GT gets a 10.1-inch touchscreen infotainment head-unit and a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster. The leather-free design package comes with Econyl, artificial leather and Kaskade upholstery.

The RS variant gets Matrix LED headlights and comes with either 20-inch or 21-inch wheels. It is also equipped with air-suspension and tungsten carbide coated brake discs.

The e-tron GT uses two electric motors; one on each axle, with a combined output of 469 BHP and 630 Nm. The 'overboost' function ramps up the output to 523 BHP. The RS version packs 590 BHP and 830 Nm. The rear motor is mated to a 2-speed transmission.

Audi claims that the e-tron GT will accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 4.1 seconds and has a top speed of 245 km/h. The car uses an 85 kWh battery that is said to provide a maximum range of 488 km on a single charge.
