Audi PB 18 e-tron Supercar Concept Coming This Month

Audi is planning to debut a new electric supercar concept at Pebble Beach this month.

The Audi PB 18 e-tron, as it will be called, is described as “a supercar concept car with electric drive,” that “recalls the LeMans-series winner Audi R18 e-tron,” LMP1 car. The R18 e-tron featured a 4.0-liter turbodiesel V6 engine and an electric drive system with a lithium-ion battery, but we’re expecting the PB 18 e-tron to be pure electric. Audi’s had its (rather bad) day with diesel, after all.

“The Audi PB18 e-tron will be unveiled at 5 p.m. on August 23, 2018, on the Laguna Seca racetrack,” the automaker said in a statement. “The concept car will then be shown at the legendary vehicle presentation ‘The Quail’ on August 24 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Audi will present the concept car once more in Laguna Seca on August 25 (8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m.). And the concept car can be seen for the final time on Sunday, August 26, at the Concours d’Elegance in Pebble Beach. In parallel to the show car world premiere, Audi is also showing an extensive range of vintage cars and performance vehicles.”

Stay tuned for full details on the Audi PB 18 e-tron as they become available.
