2022 Audi RS e-tron GT Review

2022 Audi RS e-tron GT Review

It seems a long time since I was lucky enough to get a first crack of the Audi e-tron GT about three years ago. At that point the sleek four-door EV was still a prototype, though even then its focus was fairly clear. While Audi's high-performance electric grand tourer may be the mechanical twin of the Porsche Taycan, here that all drives to a different tune. Porsche touts the Taycan as a four-door all-electric sportscar, as close right now to a four-seater electric 911 that you can get.

Audi Artemis concept revealed: The autonomous EV that aims to upend everything

If you had to define the Audi Artemis project in just a few words, you could say it's upending, well, everything. How a car is designed, how it's driven - or, more accurately, how it drives itself - and how the occupants interact with the technology as a result. Today, as Audi pulls back the curtain on just what its Artemis team has been working on, I caught up with Marc Lichte, Head of Design, to hear about big changes and even bigger promises.
