The future is here: e-tron SUV, e-tron GT and RS e-tron GT arrive in the country this month
Audi in 2021 doubled its global product portfolio of fully electric models as it transforms into an electric mobility provider that puts a premium on sustainability and new energy. In line with this drive toward cleaner transport solutions, Audi Philippines is introducing later this month the fully electric Audi e-tron SUV, the e-tron GT four-door grand tourer, and the dynamic RS e-tron GT.
By launching more electric models than conventional cars last year, Audi is steadily increasing its range of fully electric premium models. By 2025, the brand aims to have more than 20 fully electric and 10 partially electric models in its lineup. Starting in 2026, Audi will only launch new models that are fully electric. The company will gradually phase out production of its internal combustion engines by 2033, and from then on all Audi models will be purely electric.
To meet these targets, Audi has earmarked sizeable investments for electrification and hybridization, emphasizing its clear commitment to electromobility. Alongside this, Audi Philippines has also committed to various initiatives that lay the groundwork for the wider adoption of fully electric vehicles in the country. Among these are establishing dedicated service facilities for electric vehicles, continuously setting up a charging infrastructure, and partnering with stakeholders which promote ecologically conscientious practices.
Spearheading Audi’s electromobility transformation in the Philippines is the Audi e-tron SUV. Offering the space, comfort and utility of a full-size sport-utility vehicle by providing ample space for five people and their luggage, the e-tron SUV exemplifies the driving experience of a new era. It is powered by two electric motors, outputting 408 PS and 664 Nm, which are free of emissions and operate in near silence. The model’s electric all-wheel drive quattro system guarantees superlative traction and handling on any terrain and in any weather condition by continuously distributing power between the two axles.
With a fully charged battery, the Audi e-tron SUV can travel more than 400 kilometers (according to WLTP standards), thanks partly to an innovative energy recuperation system.
The Audi e-tron SUV carries a five-star safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the Euro NCAP, and is also named a Top Safety Pick+ by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.
Accompanying the Audi e-tron SUV are the Audi e-tron GT and RS e-tron GT, both of which demonstrating how exciting electric-powered mobility can be. These gran turismo four-door coupés continue the benchmark-setting performance of Audi’s legendary quattro all-wheel drive system, but this time through two electric motors fitted on their front and rear axles. Combining emotive design with a powerful drive, dynamic handling, and zero-emission powertrains, the Audi e-tron GT produces 476 PS and 630 Nm (and as much as 530 PS in overboost), while the flagship Audi RS e-tron GT — the most powerful production car Audi has ever made — delivers 598 PS and 830 Nm (or a maximum output of 646 PS in overboost). Both models can travel more than 400 kilometers when fully charged.
With the e-tron SUV, e-tron GT and RS e-tron GT, Audi is bringing the future of clean mobility in the Philippines.
