Don’t expect it to be a R8-Based Model.
Route in 2009, Audi uncovered its first-historically speaking R8 e-tron electric supercar. In the wake of making a really major ordeal out of it, in 2013 the venture was slaughtered off by Audi’s then advancement boss Wolfgang Durheimer, who’s currently running Bentley and Bugatti. Durheimer’s thinking, at the time, was that battery innovation wasn’t adequate for supercar execution. His successor, the now resigned Ulrich Hackenberg, resuscitated the e-tron extend and requested a constrained generation run, however nothing standard. At that point the R8 e-tron was executed again in 2016.
As indicated by Autocar, Audi’s new R&D manager, Peter Mertens, implied that an all-electric supercar is being considered by and by.
“You can envision that sooner or later in time we will have an electric supercar,” Mertens said at a Formula E race prior in the month.
Restoring the corona electric supercar extend is still in an early improvement arrange, however Mertens is resolved to see things through. In any case, dissimilar to the R8 e-tron, Mertens trusts an Audi EV supercar must have its own novel outline, rather than being a R8 turn off. Luckily, individual VW Group mark Porsche is optimizing improvement for a generation rendition of its Mission E idea, and in this manner Audi could be given different types of specialized help.
Mertens additionally included that his optimal EV supercar would highlight 800V electrics rather than the 400V framework in other Audi models. No time allotment was given, yet with EV innovation now where it should be, a renewed Audi EV supercar sounds like an easy decision.
