Check Out The 2022 World Performance Car Of The Year At Audi PH Showrooms

Proving that electric mobility can be sustainable, dynamic and fascinating all at once, the fully electric Audi e-tron GT has won the World Performance Car title in the 2022 World Car Awards. The latest win brings Audi’s World Performance Car titles to five, and marks the first time for Audi to take this recognition with a fully electric model.

Audi has now won 11 World Car Awards titles in the program’s 18-year history, more than any other car manufacturer.

With the Audi e-tron GT (along with the Audi e-tron SUV and the flagship Audi RS e-tron GT), Audi Philippines is ushering in sustainable electromobility in the country as part of its drive toward providing cleaner transport solutions. The company, through its “FutureNow” program, is redefining sustainability as the new luxury and is now engaged in various initiatives which aim to achieve carbon neutrality. One of these initiatives is promoting the use of fully electric vehicles like the e-tron range.

The Audi e-tron GT provides ample power and performance. Its two electric motors have a combined output of 530 horsepower and 630 Nm, allowing the car to reach 100 km/h from a standstill in only 4.1 seconds. Paired to the electric motors is the electric quattro all-wheel drive system, which ensures maximum dynamism, stability and traction in any condition, thanks to its ability to constantly vary power distribution between the axles.

Located on each front fender of the Audi e-tron GT are charging flaps containing charging points for either alternating current (AC) or direct current (DC). With a fully charged battery, the e-tron GT can travel as much as 500 kilometers (according to WLTP tests).

The Audi e-tron models come with an Audi portable charging system that can be plugged into either a suitable household outlet or a three-phase industrial outlet. Audi Philippines also offers Audi e-tron owners the option of having an alternating current (AC) charging unit installed in their homes. This allows them to fully charge an Audi e-tron model overnight, or “top-up” the battery charge level whenever it is convenient to do so, just like for mobile phones.

In installing a home charging system, Audi Philippines performs a Home Check, coordinating with Audi e-tron owners regarding their preference for the applicable location of the charger. Setting up a home charging system is no more complicated than installing an air-conditioning unit.

The World Car Awards is a program initiated, organized and conducted by automotive journalists from around the world, and is considered as the “Oscars of the automotive world.” In the 2022 edition, a jury of 102 international automotive journalists from 33 countries selected the finalists by secret ballot based on their evaluation of each eligible vehicle.

“We’re happy that the fully electric Audi e-tron GT is a finalist in three categories only a year after its world premiere,” said Oliver Hoffmann, Member of Audi AG’s Board of Management for Technical Development, at the World Car Awards program. “The fact that the Audi e-tron GT takes the title of ‘World Performance Car,’ and so this award goes to Audi for the fifth time, makes us particularly proud.”

Besides the prestigious World Cars Award title, the Audi e-tron GT has also been recognized for its advanced design. The model was named as Most Beautiful Car of the Year in Germany’s 2021 Golden Steering Wheel awards, and was also cited for best design innovation in the luxury class in the 2021 Autonis awards.
