First All-Electric Audi Supercar
It is not unusual to hear that a carmaker built an all-electric vehicle. In fact, that is the trend these days. We bring you the Audi PB18 e-tron supercar concept.
The first fully electric Audi supercar is also a reality, although in the form of a concept. The German manufacturer made this all-electric supercar prototype with solid-state batteries, 570 kW power and 800-volt charging system. The PB 18 uses three electric motors (one for each rear wheel and another for the front wheels to share) hooked up to a 95-kilowatt-hour battery. Audi stated that the PB is capable of going from 0 to 62 miles per hour in two seconds and can go 310 miles long without charging. When it does have to charge, the Audi PB E-Tron fills its battery wirelessly and in around 15 minutes.
The Audi PB18 E-Tron supercar is very similar to the Audi Aicon concept from 2017. Both concepts share their electric drive with solid-state batteries as energy storage. The idea of Audi designers was to create a two-seater that would be good for both the grand tour and for the racetrack. In case the driver falls short of a companion, he or she can slide their seat over to the center of the car, providing an ideal seating position for driving a pleasure. Audi PB18 E-Tron is designed to put the emphasis on the driver and the driver’s entertainment and infotainment.
Unfortunately, PB 18 E-Tron itself is a work of concept car fantasy and it will not crack the market. On the other hand, an electric Audi supercar charged to go the distance may be a new member of the R8 line in the near future.
