The Audi E-TRON GT won big at The World Car Of The Year Awards held February 13, 2022 at the 2022 New York Auto Show. The E-TRON GT, the only one of the winners of the show currently available in the Philippines, won against a strong field that included such cars as finalist BMW M3/M4 and finalist Toyota GR86/Subaru BRZ and contenders such as the Porsche 911 GT3 and the Volkswagen GTI/R.
“Our big goal with the Audi e-tron GT was to reimagine the Gran Turismo philosophy for the electric age,” says Christiane Zorn, Head of Product Marketing at AUDI AG. “The e-tron GT combines sporty, powerful driving with a high level of everyday usability – it is a real Gran Turismo and a true Audi. Thank you very much to the World Car judges for recognizing the Audi e-tron GT with the 2022 World Performance Car award.”
The World Car Awards is an independent body of over 100 jurors from over 30 countries, and is overseen by KPMG in order to maintain impartiality and transparency.
The AUDI E-TRON GT uses two electric motors and an innovative two-speed transmission to allow breathtaking acceleration. Weight distribution that can do away with front-heavy internal combustion engines and architecture allows designers and engineers to create a platform that allows excellent handling while still providing ample space, all within a sleek and elegant body that will look familiar yet edgy. The interior is of the highest level, reminding enthusiasts that the brand of the four rings has always focused on making the cabin ergonomically well designed while still having the look and feel of intelligent purposeful luxury.
