With most manufacturers switching their regular cars to electric cars, it’s the Audi which is changing the supercar scenario towards the greener side. Audi will launch the next generation supercar R8 in an all-electric form. The all-electric car with Audi’s Quattro tech when launched will be in hypercar territory. The car is likely to be named as R8 E-tron.

The R8 E-tron will be inspired from PB18 e-tron concept. The vehicle will be developed solely by keeping performance in mind. The 2022 model with electric motors and Quattro tech will produce an output of 1014 HP and will propel the car from standstill to 100 km/hr in just over 2 seconds. The top speed will be easily above 300 km/hr.

With most manufacturer using hybrid technology for their supercar, Audi with R8 E-tron will go head to head with them. Audi has been downsizing its engines from V8’s to Turbo V6’s on its products due to global emission regulations. Support from the company’s sports performance division has helped Audi to be the frontrunner in electric and hybrid cars. With the above things said, the company has targeted to sell around 8 lakh electric cars by 2025.
