Audi Confirms R8 e-tron for End 2014
|   Saturday, December 21, 2013
Audi is right on track to launch its R8 e-tron after reports suggested that the company was in no mood to launch an all electric variant of its supercar. This zero emission vehicle will now enter production lineup while small scale production should begin soon. There have been quite a few sweeping changes inside Audi's management and hence these new instructions have come in as part of that package.

Research and Development is a very important step in car designing and Audi makes sure that they have got their basics right while designing the R8 e-tron.
Advancements in lithium ion battery technology have increased its battery backup from 135 Miles to 250 Miles while insiders at Audi are hopeful of this vehicle making a huge comeback. Insiders claim that this vehicle will go on sale by the second quarter of 2014 although final announcements are yet to be made.

Audi will be using a rear wheel drive train on its e-tron while this vehicle will act as a benchmark product for future generation vehicles. Even if mass scale production is not on Audi's cards limited edition variants are set to come out soon enough. Engineering work will be taken care of Hackenburg. The man is behind the very successful launch of vehicles such as the e-Golf, e-Up, Golf Plug in Hybrid and the XL1.

These vehicles share a reputation for being famous and widely accepted across global markets. There are quite a few reasons for that, primary among which is a fact that these electric vehicles have found greater travelling range. This vehicle has a total dry weight of 3,924 pounds while its carbon fiber structure along with an all aluminum chassis reduces weight considerably.

This is the same vehicle as the R8, apart from its conventional petrol engine. A 48.6 kWh battery pack has been installed in this vehicle while its density is less than other battery packs powering vehicles. Prototypes are currently doing the rounds although production models cannot be far away now. We are not sure of the drive train and other features of this vehicle and insiders at Audi have not been too helpful either. We expect a mid 2014 reveal although spy pictures could be out by early 2014.

We however are more interested on a power train specification. This however is hard to come by. As a result we are not yet sure when the details will be out although rumors revolving around this vehicle are already doing the rounds. Apart from a few minor setbacks, this vehicle is all set for production although we feel Audi has a few plans in mind before bringing this car into mainstream market segments.

Aerodynamically this vehicle is a hit and as a result we have nothing to be concerned about regarding its exterior. Body frame has been lifted directly off the conventional petrol variant and as a result there are not many major changes. Minor changes have however been made to accommodate the general components.
