The Audi R8 to get the green treatment

Following its plans to introduce more battery-operated cars by 2025, Audi is now revamping one of its supercars. It has been announced that the R8 will be turned into an all-electric vehicle.

A revamped Audi R8 is in the works

Despite achieving success with its first generation, the current R8 car was not considered quite as popular. The decision to bring a modification to the automobile and transform it into an all-electric vehicle was not the original plan. Indeed, Audi had already abandoned the introduction of a third generation. However, the idea of creating a rechargeable auto led the manufacturers to reconsider.

The details of the all-electric vehicle

Following its plans to sell 800,000 electrified models by 2025, less and less Audi vehicles will now come with a petrol engine. Indeed, the R8 is likely to be an impressive car. It could come with four-wheel drive, instant torque from its electric motors and 1000bhp. Its speed is expected to reach 0–62 mph in 2 seconds.

Another auto awaited from the German company

The R8 is likely to be modelled after another rechargeable prototype, the PB 18 e-tron. The car goes from 0 to 100 kilometres per hour in just over 2 seconds. It was recently unveiled at the Pebble Beach Automotive Week in Monterey, California. Furthermore, another production, an SUV which came out in September 2018, could be seen as a Tesla competitor.

Further details about the automobile

The move to bring the modification to the R8 as a power-driven sportscar could also mean that Audi will be reducing its use of the V10 engine. The battery-operated four-wheeler is scheduled to be launched in 2022.
