Audi’s e-tron project is like Daimler’s E-Cell.
They started out with a sportscar prototype and are now expanding it.
Now as it turns out there’s a Spyder e-tron as well which will debut at the upcoming Paris Motor Show.
The car is an evolution of the e-tron system.

The e-tron Spyder is actually very clever and equally boring to explain!
Apparently here’s how it works: the front wheels of the car are driven by the electric motors which provide a range of 50 km on a single charge.

But the car also has a 3.0 liter V6 TDI which drives the back wheels.
So it’s actually four-wheel-drive when all motors are working and delivering full power.

The body of the car will be a blend of carbon fiber and aluminum while the suspension, steering and brakes come from the regular Audi R8.
