Audi e-tron Car
German car manufacturers four rings logo, Audi, a new surprise with the introduction of another version of electric sports variant, e-Tron in the carpet
2010 Detroit Auto Show or the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS).
When e-Tron previous version on display at the Frankfurt Auto Show September 2009 and makes us think of the Audi R8, then with 27 cm shorter, and the reduced width of 12 cm, the latest version of e-Tron is reminiscent of the Audi R4.
Reporting from Worldcarfans, Wednesday (13/11/2010), two electric motors drive the front axle and rear. Together they can generate power of 204 hp and reaches peak torque of 2650 Nm.
Thus, car-called ‘baby R8’ this could run from 0 – 100 km per hour in 5.9 seconds, with a limited maximum speed to 200 km per hour.
To be invited to speeding, Lithium-ion batteries that are used can be recharged about 11 hours from a household electrical socket, when completely empty, or just two hours from the 400 volt power source.
The e-tron has no transmission, only two reduction gears (1:6 ratio in front and 1:7 ratio in rear, owing to the larger wheels on the rear). The gearing is why the car has a nominal horsepower of 313 hp but on-paper torque of 3,319 pound-feet. Obviously, you can’t unleash that kind of twist all at once or the car would rip its own axles apart. With about 550 pound-feet of torque doled out by the computers, the car’s 0-62 mph pace is 4.8 seconds. Top speed is e-limited to 155 mph.
