Audi e-Tron will be launched in 2012

Audi e-Tron will be launched in 2012 -Audi’s electric R8 – the Audi e-Tron – was unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show this year and has just had its US debut at the Los Angeles Motor Show. Dubbed the Electric R8 it is in fact a stand alone car that happens to have styling similarities to Audi’s Supercar R8, but there the similarity ends.
The e-Tron – which took a little of the glory off BMW’s Vision ED Concept - boasts four electric motors – one at each wheel – which produce the equivalent of 313bhp. That is enough to get the e-Tron to 60mph in around 4.6 seconds which is none too shoddy for an EV. But the astonishing figure quoted was the torque the e-Tron delivers. According to Audi it has 3,115 lb-ft, which is nothing short of incredible.The Audi e-Tron at the LA Auto Show
