Audi R8 E-tron And Why We Are Not Giving Up From The Electric Supercar Production
In the last few months there was a lot of talk about slowing of some electric supercars concepts. Audi’s R8 E-tron was one of the victims. But some people say hope still exist.
Audi R8 E-tron is monster that rocked our world in the last few years. First car appeared on the 2009 Frankfurt Auto Show and took the show with mastered design and amazing power under the hood, read more about E-tron showoff and track testing in our archives. Next year, car appeared at the 24 Hours of Le Mans race, place where Audi usually perform at it’s best. We were jumping from our sofa and yelling in support of electric supercars monster that was eating everything on it’s way. It was exciting just to see environment friendly car performing where many skeptics would say electric cars will never be match to petrol powered beauties. We want Audi R8 E-tron and we want it bad.
As per current news, Audi will not stop production plans for E-tron, but it may slow down to catch up with battery technology that will allow car to perform at it’s best in “normal” conditions. I may ask, who will drive this car in “normal” conditions? I was overtaken by R8 on Autobahn, while driving around 180. Yes, that is the environmental for Audi R8 E-tron. Twisty roads on the way from Monaco to Switzerland. Transfargarasan road in Romania. German autobahn on Sunday morning. This are the places where we’ll take Audi R8 E-tron for a ride. And believe me – it will perform.
So Audi bosses – don’t give up. We need a new ride. And we are hungry for electric supercar.
Are you hungry too? Let me know in comments.
