As car enthusiasts, we want to protect the but we also don’t want to boring cars. So it’s that amidst the push for energy vehicles a push seems destined to turn into mere appliances are a few players who recognize it’s that their green must also offer driving dynamics in addition to looks.

We were pleased unveiled the concept at last Frankfurt Auto Show. so when the folks from allowed us a brief drive in the $1 show car; better Audi recently announced it build a limited production in about two years.

Despite being a show the e-Tron can get up and go in a hurry (although we allowed to drive it much 50 mph). Mechanically, it feels ready for production. Looking much like an. the e-Tron is by four synchronous electric one per wheel, thus making it drive. The combined power is an adequate 313 horsepower, but it’s the 501 lb.-ft. of torque that your attention, ready to the car from 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) in a 4.8 seconds and to a top speed of 125 mph.

Dip the throttle er, the electric accelerator and the e-Tron’s instant torque can be at just about any speed. In Audi says that to go 37 mph to 75 mph takes just 4.1 sec.

Thomas Kr uter, technical manager for the e-Tron, tells us the car was to have driving dynamics to those of the R8. As such, the e-Tron’s weight is targeted at around lb. similar to the R8 V-10, although the car is currently 600 lb. heavier. But in driving the there’s little hint of

The electricity is stored in water-cooled batteries located in the center of the just aft of the cockpit. The 53-kW-h pack, which weighs over 1000 lb. is capable of 42.4 kW-h under usage, making for a range of 150 miles. Using a standard household socket (230 17 amps), the e-Tron can be fully in 6 to 8 hours.

A 400-volt (63-amp) outlet recharge time to 2.5 hours. Of Audi engineers are investigating the of a wireless inductive charging where no cables are needed to the car with a physical outlet.

The has a smaller overall footprint the R8, due to a shorter wheelbase, shorter and a lower height. In fact, the two share only the same and fender flares, despite so much alike. The e-Tron’s is constructed with Audi Frame (ASF) technology, and the panels are made of carbon plastic. The front suspension double wishbones, with a setup at the rear.

Steering is via rack-and-pinion, electrically only when the wheel is to conserve energy. Under driving conditions, the 235/35-19 tires receive up to 30 percent of the to help drive the car, the remaining torque routed to the rear tires. The application of technology allows optimized output at each wheel to understeer or oversteer during

The interior of the e-Tron has a futuristic theme, highlighted by an LCD screen in the of the instrument panel. The screen is by two dials one showing vehicle the other power usage/regeneration. The MMI handles the LCD screen’s various accessed via a touchpad on the center

Additionally, the Audi Car-to-x feature allows the e-Tron to automatically with the road and its based on GPS position, geographical (grades, corners) and traffic

An initial run of 100 vehicles is to begin at the end of 2011. No pricing has been set although rumors peg the sticker $200,000. We look forward to production Audi e-Tron, as it to be an earnest effort to build an all-electric sports car for driving
