Audi e-tron Spyder at Paris 2010
Audi e-tron family is continuing to grow and its newest representative is the staggering study ride Audi e-tron Spyder. Celebrating its grand premiere at the Mondial de l'Automobile 2010 in Paris, the sharp-styled, head-turning e-tron Spyder is a true, open two-seater that benefits from the state-of-the-art Audi plug-in hybrid drive.
The more detailed specs include total weight of only 1,450 kilograms (3,196.70 lb) and dimensions of 4.06 meters (13.32 ft) long, 1.81 meters (5.94 ft) wide and 1.11 meters (3.64 ft) high. Under its lightweight dress, the mind-twisting e-tron Spyder sports a high-torque six-cylinder, 3.0-liter bi-turbocharged TDI engine that delivers 300 horsepower (221 kW) and 650 Nm (479.42 lb-ft) peak torque in combination with two electric motors with total torque of 352 Nm (259.62 lb-ft). Thanks to this powerful yet highly efficient hybrid combo, the ride is capable to accelerate from standstill to 100 km/h in only 4.4 seconds, while its top speed is electronically limited to 250 km/h.
The hi-tech hybrid ride is also boasting excellent fuel economy and emissions levels, estimating a fuel consumption of 2.2l diesel/100 km and CO2 emissions of 59 g/km.
In zero emissions mode, the Audi e-tron Spyder is able to record distances of up to 50 kilometers with top speed of around 60 km/h, which is more than perfect for urban driving.
