The Audi R8 e-tron coupe is equipped with two electric motors on the rear axle with a combined output of 456 hp and 920 Nm. The capacity of lithium-ion battery traction is 92 kW∙h, this should be enough for 450 km of run. The electric car accelerates from a place to 100 km/h in 3,9 seconds, but the maximum speed due to the fixed gear ratio is limited to 250 km/h, which is obscenely low by supercar standards.
In addition, Audi, it seems, did not seek to promote the electric supercar on the market: the car was not included in the online configurators, and you can buy it only in the showroom at the company’s headquarters in Ingolstadt. That’s the result: less than a hundred marketable cars were produced in a year and a half. From all appearances, the history of this model is completed.
However, Audi is not going anywhere away from an electric future: after the dieselgate, development of this area is a priority for Volkswagen. But first of all, relatively mass models should enter the market. And then, we’ll see if we can get our hands on an electric supercar again.
