Audi e-tron GT

The Audi equivalent to the Porsche Taycan is the e-tron GT. The platform named J1 is the same, and the drive is basically identical. However, Audi has slightly different performance data than Porsche and there is (at least initially) no version with rear-wheel drive. You can read a more detailed comparison with the Taycan at InsideEVs.de.

There are two all-wheel drive versions at the start: the normal e-tron GT with 350 kW and the RS e-tron GT with 440 kW. Both have the same 86 kWh battery, so they should both cover around 490 km - the range is so far only an estimate. Prices start at around 100,000 euros, the RS costs around 38,000 euros more.

  • Base price: 99,800 euros (e-tron GT)
  • Drive: all-wheel drive with 350 kW (476 PS) rated power and 630 Nm (e-tron GT)

Audi Q2 facelift

Four years after its market launch in 2016, the Audi Q2 is getting a facelift. During the revision, the Q2 has grown by a few millimeters to 4.21 meters in length, but above all there is a new front with a different light signature and a new apron.

Otherwise, LED headlights will be standard in the future, and there are also new colors. In future, Audi will bundle the extras in packages, which should lead to greater clarity. The price list currently includes the 1.0 TFSI with 110 PS, the 1.5 TFSI with 150 PS and the 2.0 TDI with 150 PS, whereby the diesel is always combined with all-wheel drive. Another turbo gasoline engine and another diesel have been announced. In addition, the pre-facelift SQ2 can still be configured with a 300 hp 2.0 TFSI.

Audi Q5 Sportback

The Q5 is getting a coupé SUV variant practically at the same time as the facelift. The dimensions are hardly different from the normal Q5, but the Q5 Sportback has a sports suspension as standard, so it should feel harder.

At the market launch in the first half of 2021 there is only one engine: the 2.0 TDI with 204 PS and mild hybrid support. The other engines from the lifted Q5 should follow a little later.

  • Base price: not yet known

BMW 4 Series Coupe

The new generation of the BMW 4 Series Coupé started in October 2020. The visual changes are radical; most noticeable is the large grill. The basis is of course the 3 Series, but the chassis should be designed to be much sportier.

BMW announces three petrol and three diesel. There are currently five drives in the price list: 420i, 430i, M440i, 420d and 420d xDrive. The 430d and 440d will follow in spring 2021. All engines receive a 48-volt mild hybrid system and are always combined with an eight-speed automatic.

BMW 4 Series Convertible

The new BMW 4 Series Convertible also has the new, large double kidney grille. Otherwise, the open model now drives with a fabric top - whereas previously it had a retractable hardtop. One of the main reasons for the change is apparently the lower weight.

The engines are the same as in the coupe, except that the 420d is not available with all-wheel drive. The basic version here as there is the 420i with a 184 hp turbo gasoline engine. The prices are of course a little higher; they start at around 52,000 euros. And while the coupe started in October, you have to wait until March 2021 for the convertible.

  • Engines: currently 3 turbo gasoline engines, 1 diesel
  • 0-100 km / h: 8.2 seconds (420i)
