Audi e-tron GT wins at the 2022 World Car awards

INGOLSTADT/NEW YORK – Audi’s e-tron GT quattro was a big winner at the 2022 World Car Awards, presented for the 18th time in New York after nomination in the categories World Electric Vehicle of the Year, World Performance Car, and World Car Design of the Year.

The e-tron GT quattro took home the World Performance Car award from the world’s biggest and most prestigious new-car awards run under the “Oscars of the automotive world umbrella.

More than 100 auto journalists from around the world tested the cars that qualified then voted on them for the 2022 honours.

Audi’s Oliver Hoffmann, from the brand’s technical arm, told The Corner in a media release: “We’re happy that the fully-electric e-tron GT quattro was a finalist in three categories only a year after its world premiere,

“That the the car was named World Performance Car – for the fifth time – makes us particularly proud. The car proves that electric mobility can be sustainable, dynamic, and fascinating – all at once.”

As of 2026, Audi says, the automaker will, globally, only launch models with electric drive. Starting 2025, all Audi production will be carbon neutral.

The e-tron GT quattro’s win was helped by a thermal management system consisting of four circuits kept at their ideal temperature and therefore ready for instant action.

Thanks to intelligent thermal management, the battery will also be kept at in an ideal temperature for charging, depending on the exterior temperature, even while the car is being driven.

“Useful,” Audi says, “for fast charging with up to 270kW.”

This year’s victory took Audi to 11 first places at the World Car awards – more than any other automaker.
