Audi E Tron aka Audi R8 electric concept.Edit( 3319lb/ft of monstrous monster torque)

Click here(autoblog)






Quote:
Those with a passion for torque were disappointed when it became clear that Audi was unlikely to ever build a production version of the R8 V12 TDI that was shown at the 2008 Detroit Auto Show. Now the automaker has come back with a new R8-based concept that puts the diesel to shame. The new e-tron packs four electric motors and a lithium-ion battery pack with a fairly tame-sounding 313 hp but an insane 3,319 lb-ft of torque. The run to 62 mph takes 4.8 seconds, but rolling acceleration from 37-75 mph takes just 4.1 seconds thanks to the e-tron's massive amount of twist.

While acknowledging that electric vehicles are still far from economically viable volume production vehicles, Audi is nonetheless working on electric technology, both for hybrids and pure EVs. The pack sports a 53kWh capacity of which 42.4 kWh is usable. The pack weighs in at 1,036 pounds out of a total vehicle weight of 3,527 pounds and is mounted ahead of the rear axle and liquid cooled. Each of the axles sports two electric motors allowing the e-tron to retain Audi's signature quattro all-wheel drive. The e-tron has an estimated range of 154 miles on the EU combined driving cycle and you can read more about it in Audi's official press release after the jump.

Actually Audi has 3 versions (V8, V10, V10 convertible) Infact they have 4 if you count the cool diesel concept too. I'm disappointed in this new concept though.

I heard ages ago that the V8 convertible will have slight changes and will be facelifted. That's all I heard though, dont know if this means a V8 coupe facelift too or if any of this is true at all.

....Your right, there are 3 versions.

And I think the convertible will be available with a V10 only. That's good but some people would have prefered looks over grunt and thus opt for a smaller engine(aka V8)

Yeah that's cool and all until you have to replace your tires every 2 weeks.

Looks bare, but I guess very drag coefficient. Hard to think that there weren't any stylish compromises to liven up the car.

I have to agree that the new BMW concept is the far more exciting and practical of the two. This is the car that BMW has to make, put them back on top again and show a clear message that they are in touch with the environment and yet are still able to make a sportscar that's exciting to drive and look at.

As for the E Tron, it has to be one of the poorest concept Audi have ever came out with, not only have they destroyed the R8 visually but a totally electric car has no long term future.

wtf were they thinking with that blinged out grille and wheels? Looks like they gave Trick Daddy an R8 and he went to town w/ a strup billet grille and 20'' dayton wire mesh wheels....the only thing its missing is some air bags and 3 wheel motion.

Fugly..
