Electric mobility is becoming dynamic and fascinating, as Audi is proving with the e-tron GT. The four-door coupé reinterprets the classic idea of the gran turismo: Its design is highly emotive, its technology is exhilarating. Two powerful electric motors provide dynamic driving performance and confident electric all-wheel drive. With its net energy content of 84 kWh, the high-voltage battery enables ranges of up to 488 km (303.2 mi) and can be recharged extremely quickly, thanks to its 800 V technology. Suspension, lights, controls, connection, or e-tron sport sound: The Audi e-tron GT quattro and RS e-tron GT kicked off their presales simultaneously in mid-February 2021. Both models demonstrate accumulated technical expertise – and the Audi brand’s strong passion for minute details.
Alfa Romeo Tonale Design Preview in Blue
The Tonale’s power makes its debut on the road in Tempio Voltiano, the celebrated location of Alessandro Volta’s inventions in the beautiful setting of Lake Como. A symbolic location to highlight the brand’s “metamorphosis”, it was here more than 200 years ago that the Italian scientist created his most famous invention: the battery, the first generator of dynamic electricity. A scientific landmark in modern history, this instrument allows our technological civilization to function. A precursor to the concept of sustainability, Alessandro Volta obsessively studied nature in order to replicate it for the benefit of humanity. This innovative approach, which is fully embraced by Alfa Romeo, demonstrates how, with its “mechanical creations”, sustainable technological development must imitate nature and take inspiration from it in order to adapt and live in harmony with it. Therefore, the Italian brand’s latest chapter couldn’t help but begin in Tempio Voltiano. With Tonale, Alfa Romeo has radically evolved and launched itself into a new, technological, sustainable and electrified era. The Tonale’s road capabilities are clear. The technology and connectivity on board make it the most technological Alfa Romeo to date. It combines quality and attention-to-detail with dynamic features to reinvent sportiness in the 21st century.
