Audi R8's electric successor RS e-tron: release date, features and price

By  Fields Corrielus 2019-08-16 375 0

German carmaker Audi has agreed with Rimac to launch an all-electric version of the Audi R8 sports car, known as the RS e-tron, which will sell for about 200000 euros and will go on sale around 2023-2024.

Audi R8's electric successor RS e-tron

According to Audi CEO Bram short (Bram Schott) at the annual conference of automakers in May, Audi is likely to stop building an internal combustion engine version of the Audi R8. Now, according to senior sources inside Audi, the mid-engine R8, which Audi first launched in 2006, has now begun to withdraw from history. 

According to CAR magazine, RS e-tron will not be made entirely by Audi. To avoid additional pressure on the budget, Audi plans to outsource electric powertrain and battery development to Rimac, a maker of Croation electric cars. The car itself will be produced at the Audi Bolling H ö fe plant near Heilbronn, but RS e-tron 's four-motor powertrain, as well as solid-state batteries, will be supplied by Rimac. 

Although Audi did not release any official specifications or details, Audi sources said that the RS e-tron may be equipped with 95kWh solid-state batteries, can provide 480km range, zero to 100km acceleration in just 2.5s. There may also be an all-wheel drive system with a motor per wheel with a total output power of 700kW, an aluminum single-shell chassis and support for wireless charging.
