Audi today officially unveiled their new E-Tron GT and RS E-Tron GT electric vehicles (EVs), built on some of the same technology found in the Porsche Taycan.

Due to arrive in Europe this spring, and North America this summer, the Audi E-Tron GT will start at $99,900 USD ($126,800 CAD). The beefed-up RS E-Tron GT will start at $139,900 USD ($177,600 CAD).

With those hefty price tags buyers will get 350kW (470 horsepower) from the GT variant, or 390kW (523 horsepower) in the RS GT variant. Both vehicles will feature a dual-motor all-wheel drive configuration.

Audi claims a 0-60mph time of 3.9 seconds for the GT, and 3.1 seconds for the RS GT.

Equipped with a 93kWh battery pack (85kWh usable), the German automaker says the GT will get “more than 488km” (298 miles) on a single charge based on the generous WLTP standard in Europe.

The company’s US press release says it has not yet been tested by the EPA, but they expect it to have a 238 mile (383km) range.

When it comes to charging, both cars will feature the same 800-volt battery architecture found in the Taycan. That will allow the EVs to regain 62 miles (100km) in five minutes using a high-powered DC fast charger.

If the price tag seems high for those specs, it only gets higher once you start adding some of the optional features. In the base GT these include matrix LED headlights (Europe only for now), a heads-up display, and all-wheel steering.

The price of the RS GT can also fluctuate by adding things like a carbon fiber reinforced roof instead of the standard glass roof. You can also opt for massaging seats, or noise-insulating glass on the side and rear windows.
