The popular GTI Meet at Lake Wörthersee was held from May 9 to 12. In on the action: the Audi e-tron prototype. As a towing vehicle for the Audi e-tron Vision Gran Turismo, the sporty electric SUV proved its excellent suitability for everyday use.

This year’s GTI Meet was held at Lake Wörthersee for the 37th time. And as every year, most fans arrived days before the official start of the event.

The brand with the four rings was joining them in Reifnitz with its first all-electric model, the Audi e-tron prototype.

In its specially developed design camouflage that skillfully presents the high-voltage drive system, the electric SUV demonstrated its suitability for everyday use.

As well as a long range of more than 400KM in the WLTP driving cycle and the electric quattro that ensures powerful performance on any terrain, the optional trailer hitch offers new options for using the electric car – for sport and leisure activities, for instance. On the trailer, the prototype was transporting the Audi e-tron Vision Gran Turismo concept car.

Originally developed exclusively for virtual races on the PlayStation 4, Audi is making the electrically driven Formula E race car concept a reality. Since the race in Rome, the Audi e-tron Vision Gran Turismo has been deployed as a race taxi for the electric racing series.
