Audi R8 e-tron is the electric version of the Audi R8. For many people, electric powered Audi R8 is not something exciting or special, they want to feel the excitement of the petrol engine. I understand them very well and sometimes I agree with them.
However, world is changing so rapidly. A decade ago, mobile phones were no more than texting devices. Now, no one uses text messages, because we use our mobile phone like a computer! This rapid transition of the mobile phones and our ability to adapt this change shows that, electric powered sport car is not something far away and we will get use to them.
Audi R8 e-tron is a concept car powered by four individual electric motors. In total, R8 e-tron produces 308 PS and 4500 Nm of torque, needs only 4.8 seconds to reach 100 kph (62 mph) with 245 km (154 miles) of range.
And during February, Audi R8 e-tron manages to go around Nürburgring 8 minutes and 9 seconds. I never talk about Nürburgring lap times, because they are a bit senseless. You would never have opportunity to push those limits in everyday. However, this lap times is achieved by an electric car and shows that even the electric cars can go really fast.
Audi recently released the video of Audi R-8 e-tron’s lap in Nürburgring.
