Audi E-tron Detroit Concept supercar. Unlike the first E-tron model (displayed at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show) which resembled the R8 model, the new E-tron has a slightly different design and it’s believed to be the foundation for the rumored R4.The 2010 Detroit Motor Show unveils the
The Audi supercar gets its power from two electric engines, developing 204 hp, that take the car from 0 to 60 mph in just 5.9 seconds. This is possible thanks to the light aluminium body kit, which results in a weight of just 1,350 kgs.
The concept vehicle measures 1.78 meters in width, 3.93 meters in length and 1.22 meters in height, classic proportions of a sports car. You need to know that the top speed for this electric Audi is limited to 124 mph.
Once it is fully charged (a complete charge takes 11 hours), the car will run for 155 miles. The interior design of the E-tron has also been changed in comparison to the first model but these changes are far more subtle. The door panels have been redesigned and also the color is different, but the basic structure has been kept the same.
It’s likely that a version of this coupe will go into serial production in the year 2012 (as the R4) and the production model could be available with either an electric engine or classic internal-combustion.
