Audi previews electric with the R8-style E-tron concept

15th September

Audi has pulled off one of the shocks of the Frankfurt motor show this, the E-tron. It’s an supercar that bears a strong resemblance to the firm’s R8 coupe. and despite its alternative source, its performance isn’t far off the conventional car, either.

thanks to four electric – two front and two rear, to give the a novel take on quattro drive – which produce a of 309bhp and 3319lb ft. While the is over 100bhp off a V8-engined R8. the is a stonking ten times bigger the petrol car’s torque

It’s unlikely to hit the road all at mind, with torque used to distribute grunt the four electric motors and to wheel as required. This the dynamics as well as acting as a system. The default power sees a 70/30 rearward though, instilling a healthy of performance car into the E-tron.

Its suspension comes in the shape of double wishbones at the front and wishbones rear, with a setup’ for the springs and shock

Performance figures aren’t a match for an eight-cylinder R8 – 0-62mph 0.2sec longer at 4.8sec, the top speed is somewhat down at a 124mph (compared to 187mph). all down to the complexities of electric as the two cars share near-identical and circa 1600kg kerb

That’s quite an achievement for the which has the handicap of a 470kg to contend with. It works that with a host of technology. The car’s main space frame structure is in carbonfibre-reinforced plastic body to couple rigidity with low

It’s a concept that’ll filter down to Audi’s production range, apparently.

technology features heavily, with the car’s main air – positioned either side of the grille and ahead of the rear – opening and closing as required, they can be closed flush most circumstances to provide a slipperier and more efficient coefficient.

The battery is placed in front of the axle, with the aim of giving the the dynamics of a mid-engined sports and is partly responsible for a 48/52 weight distribution. It’s a item and Audi claims a average range, with a charge taking 6-8 hours a normal household socket. The brake discs can also regenerative braking energy, with brake-by-wire technology the amount that can be recuperated.

admits that electric are still seen as outsiders, but is a load of money into an support project’, starting in to help develop no-compromise drive systems. The E-tron is a exciting opening for the project, every element of it designed to the performance of its electric components.

The Frankfurt motor show is the to see the Audi E-tron in person, and is until September 27. You can view the of evo’s Frankfurt coverage Audi also unveiled its R8 Spyder and new S5 Sportback.
