official Photos of the R8 e-tron.
As reported by the publication american Car and Driver, Audi has paralyzed the production of the R8 e-tron, which surprised us doubly, because these are the first report that suggest that the sporty electric had actually come to production.
Was in 2015 when Audi confirmed that the electric version of the newly introduced R8 of the second generation would be available, but only under request. Procedure that seems to have led a fairly unobtrusive, since the brand has not announced anything about it during this time.
The sales system of the R8 e-tron is based on redirect potential customers from the dealer towards the brand itself, which was the one centrally in charge of all.
Their aesthetic is similar to that of the R8 combustion, except for small details.
the reason for The cessation of their manufacture is due to the low number of units sold, which according to has been able to find the above-mentioned publication, in the words of a spokesman for Audi, has been less than 100 copies since it was put up for sale. A figure that has not been specified, and that they could both be 15, as 79, but that seems quite low for Audi.
The model, for the little that we know is these moments, it was sold only in Europe and at a price that surpassed the one million euros. So that added to his discreet marketing, it is not surprising that its release was really poor and therefore, not cost-effective or even unsustainable for Audi, which is also immersed in numerous projects simultaneously.
At least this generation of the R8 e-tron seems that he came to see the light, not as its non-nato predecessor, which was eliminated in 2012 even before they go into production.
Less than 100 copies are out there of the R8 e-tron.
The current R8 e-tron will become a good insurance in a very rare model and quoted in brief. It had a mechanical power that gave 462 HP (456 hp) with a maximum torque of 920 Nm, was able to accelerate from zero to 100 km/h in just 3.9 seconds with a top speed of 250 km/h, and its batteries gave a maximum autonomy of 450 kms.
