Audi America's Johan de Nysschen, who famously declared the (electric) Chevy Volt “A Car For Idiots”, found himself somewhat blindsided by Audi's subsequent announcement of an Ev at the Frankfurt Motor Show, but has now changed his tune, declaring there will be working examples on the road within two years. Gas 2.0 reports - Audi E-Tron Electric Supercar is a Go.
The Audi E-Tron electric sports car is a go, according to Audi of America President Johan de Nysschen. The super-futuristic electric car that debuted at the Frankfurt Auto Show was such a hit that de Nysschen thinks there will be working examples on the road within two years.
The E-Tron gets power from four in-wheel electric motors for total power output of 313 ponies. 168 inches in length, the two-seater sits between the Audi TT roadster and R8 supercar in terms of size, though it will likely dwarf both in price. The car uses a lightweight space frame and fiber-plastic body parts to keep weight down and improve range to 154 miles out of its lithium-ion battery pack. No word on charging times, though five to eight hours seems to be the typical time to fully charge battery packs these days.
