Official Audi e-tron GT topic

Couldn't find one specific to it, and the naming is now starting to clarify (first two will be e-tron and e-tron Sportback; this will be #3).

Audi: By 2020 Our Electric Cars Will Fast Charge To 80% In 12 Minutes

Audi BEVs will get 350 kW ultra-fast charging

Currently, Audi is introducing its first all-electric model – the e-tron – which will be able to charge from 0 to 80% in around 30 minutes. That’s at 150 kW of power, which is industry-leading level for passenger cars. Also, the on-board charging (3-phase at 22 kW is swell too).

However, 150 kW is not the goal, but just a temporary level for the first two cars – the e-tron and e-tron Sportback (2019).

The third model – Audi e-tron GT – built on a second BEV platform and equipped with tech from Porsche, will be capable of charging at 350 kW. 80% state of charge should be achievable in 12-minutes. . . .

The 350 kW, or 5C charging rate, over a wide state-of-charge window, is expected to be possible thanks to new batteries, that are able to withstand such power.

By that time, Porsche and Audi will make use of the IONITY (Europe) and Electrify America/Electrify Canada (U.S. & Canada) ultra-fast charging networks. . . .

The 'best' is the enemy of 'good enough'. Copper shot, not Silver bullets.
