Audi e-tron: The future is now (if you can afford it)

by Aaron Turpen

it was introduced as a concept at the Frankfurt Show in Germany, the Audi was the surprise supercar that the show by storm. Electrical that is. This all-electric machine is all that and a bag of chips.

Type: Dedicated Electric

Class: 2-door Sport

Manufacturer: Audi

Propulsion 4x motors producing 230kW

Top 124mph

Vehicle range: 154

Fuel(s): Electricity

Battery 53kWh Lithium-ion

Time to battery recharge: 6-8 hours / 2.5

Price: $160,000USD (approximate)


The manufacturer says

asynchronous motors with a output of 230 kilowatts (313 hp) the Audi e-tron the performance of a sports car. The concept car can from 0 to 100 km/h (0 to 62.14 in 4.8 seconds if necessary, and goes 60 to 120 km/h (37.28 to 74.56 in 4.1 seconds. The torque flows to the wheels based on the driving and the condition of the road surface, in outstanding traction and handling.


It is not often that we are enough to see the future and realize it is the future we are seeing. The Audi has several elements that are the likely future for automotive

First and foremost, it’s Drive is a clear step from combustion-engine and drive thinking and takes advantage of all of the that electric drive can This is illustrated in the way that measures torque.

Rather measuring torque from the of the motor at the drive axle, as is the Audi instead is measuring the of the wheels on the ground, which is ways is a truer measure of the power. So the nautical miles for the are not measured from horsepower, but are measured where the rubber the road, giving the car 4,500Nm

It is not often that we are privileged to see the future and realize that it is the we are seeing.

That’s a lot of power, in comparison to the oft-mentioned Tesla the e-tron is slower on the uptake having more impressive numbers.

The 0-62mph (0-100km/h) is a 4.8 seconds compared to the 4 seconds of the The 37-74mph (60-120km/h) speed, is extremely fast at 4.1 seconds, is where the Roadster weakens. The top of the e-tron is limited to 124mph in to preserve the lifespan of the motors.

didn’t stop with the and Quattro Drive technology, They took what called the holistic approach and to have thought of everything, in German fashion.

The braking system of the e-tron is highly innovative. Taking the step from regenerative Audi instead integrated braking at the rear and hydraulics at the all four wheels using ceramic braking discs. not only facilitates full on slowing and stopping, but also brake by wire, which the frictional losses from slip that mechanical often suffer.

Several and driver-assist technologies, which has used in several of its models, the R-8 upon which the chassis and of the e-tron are based. These include interactive and camera-assisted LED that reacts to the elements, lighting for fog, rain, and conditions. Automatically opening flaps open and close as to facilitate the liquid cooling of the and battery pack in a way similar to the system on an ICE.

The e-tron’s stance is only 74.8 wide, 167.72 inches and 48.43 inches high x 4.26m x 1.23m). It’s is 102.36 inches (2.6m) most of the weight distributed the rear and with cabin forward. During normal most of the power (about is on the rear wheels, with the shifting power as needed to the conditions of the road and driving

What we like

The Design. The R-8 is a sports car and is very popular enthusiasts. Taking that and conforming it to a new driving technology, has created a beautifully designed car that denudes both the of technology as well as the raw power of the

Raw Power. Speaking of raw power, 313 horsepower and that huge of torque, the e-tron definitely some real strength on the With the Quattro Drive the car has got to be one of the best-handling sports cars to hit the road.

Quattro Drive. This technology is something that has worked on for years and that has featured in many of its internal models. Taking it to the next where it frankly belongs, is now in a true electric sports

This is likely the wave of the for electric drive, as it gives on-road handling and safety, the workload to multiple (and redundant) motors, and increases the span of each motor also lowering the battery overall.

What we don’t

Shock. At an estimated $160,000, the is not cheap. Of course, it’s for the top-end sports car market, at a level than even the

It’s situated both and out to be a very top-notch sportster.

The Production Run. Audi has that they will be producing 1,000 of these which will be introduced as a model, hitting showrooms in 2011. It’s likely the majority of those models be sold before the car is ever off the line.


This car is, in this opinion, a showcase of the future of tech as we know it. Not long now, all electrically-driven cars, be battery, fuel-cell, or plug-in will likely sport the of technology that the e-tron

The e-tron is beautiful, fast, and technologically advanced for a near-production
