Audi confirms limited production for the R8 e-tron

Audi confirms limited production for the R8 e-tron

Audi has confirmed that it will be making limited numbers of the R8 e-tron car during the latter half of 2014. The German manufacturer had earlier planned to launch the vehicle in 2012 but got delayed due to limited distance range of electric cars with the existing battery technology.

The reason for this development is due to advances in lithium-ion battery technology and changes in the research and development department. This new battery technology will enable the car to travel approximately 400 km on a single charge from the previous estimated range of 215 km. This new electric car is expected to share the same styling as that of the second generation R8.

It remains unclear if the car will get components from the previous car. The old model was powered by two motors that churned a combined output of 381bhp and 820Nm of peak torque. The e-tron can accelerate from 0-100kmph in 4.2 seconds and has an electronically limited top speed of 250kmph.
