Audi e-Tron Spyder to debut at the 2010 Paris Motor Show

Article by Christian Andrei, on September 9, 2010

As you may know already, Audi unveiled at last year’s Frankfurt Motor Show, the e-Tron Concept, a vehicle which previews the upcoming electric sports cars from Audi.

Back in January at the Detroit Auto Show, Audi showed us a second version of the e-Tron Concept which previews the forthcoming R4 sports car. According to German magazine Auto Motor und Sport, Audi will unveil a new concept at the 2010 Paris Motor Show.

This new concept will be called e-Tron Spyder and will be powered by two electric motors. And yes, it will preview the upcoming convertible version of the R4 sports car.

The e-Tron Spyder might use the same technology found on the e-Tron Detroit Show car, which was powered by two electric motors delivering a total output of 150 kW (204 hp) and 2,650 Nm (1954.54 lb-ft). With these numbers, the car can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62.14 mph) in just 5.9 seconds while the sprint from 60 to 120 km/h (37.28 - 74.56 mph) is achieved in a mere 5.1 seconds.

The car has a total range of up to 250 kilometers (155.34 miles). Also, the car could be more powerful than the Detroit Show car. As you remember, the first e-Tron Concept unveiled in Frankfurt was powered by four electric motors delivering a total output of 313 hp (230 kW).

The car can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 4.8 seconds and from 60 to 120 km/h (37.28 – 74.56 mph) in 4.1 seconds. Total range is 248 kilometers (almost 155 miles).
