Audi e-Tron Spyder concept

Audi unveiled a new sport model–Audi e-Tron Spyder concept at 2010 Paris Auto Show. It is a two-seats coupe besides the Audi TT and Audi R8.

The Audi e-Tron Spyder concept is powered by two electric motors rated at 44 hp each propel the front wheels, and a longitudinally mounted, 300-hp, 3.0-liter V-6 TDI primarily drives the rear wheels, although the overall torque split is roughly 25:75. The transmission is a seven-speed S-Tronic. The two propulsion systems can combine to produce a maximum torque output of 738 pound-feet (same as the 6.0-liter diesel in the Q7 TDI), for brief periods when the accelerator is floored and the driver hits the star button on the steering wheel.

The system relies on torque vectoring rather than electronic traction control to control wheelspin. The engineers calculate the 0-to-62 mph run at 4.4 seconds, and a top speed that would need to be electronically limited to 156 mph. Alternately, one can hit the ZEV button, and the 9.1-kWh battery will whir you along noiselessly for up thirty miles, at a maximum velocity of 37 mph. This e-quattro system is planned for the next generation of hybrid Audis, although in front-engine applications the electric motors will power the rear wheels.

Audi keeps on growing its e-tron family. The automaker pulled a fast one by unveiling yet another electrified monster at the 2010 Paris Motor Show, only this time, the low-slung hybrid came sans-top. Audi says that despite the hefty 9.1 kilowatt-hour battery mounted up front, it managed to keep the weight low and distribute the pounds evenly across the chassis. As a result, this e-tron should be plenty flingable if it ever makes it off of the stage and onto a public road.
