2015 All-Electric Audi R8 E-Tron

Audi’s R8 E-Tron model has been an on again, off again project for a few years, but the brand has finally decided to green light the all-electric supercar for limited production.

When the Audi E-Tron was originally unveiled, the main concern for the German auto maker was the 130-mile battery range. Over the years however, Audi has continued to work on the vehicle, and is now getting more than the double the output, with a battery life of 280 miles. That may not seem like a ton of range, but you have to remember that the 2-door pumps out 376 horsepower and 500+ lb-ft of torque – a setup that’s good for a zero to sixty time of 4.2 seconds. The vehicle’s production will be extremely limited, and will only be sold to customers upon request. It’s definitely a good start for what looks to be a promising future for the electric car segment.
