Audi R8 e-tron: Electrifying Ubercar

By now, you must have changed your head image about electric cars probably. They don’t necessarily have to be tiny and inefficient as our familiar Reva. Thanks to the R & D of some auto companies on electro-mobility, they now have expanded our imaginations on electric cars. Especially companies like Tesla and Mercedes Benz, the concept of an all-electric supercar no longer seems as unlikely as it once did.

Of course Audi has joined that league very recently, but its R8 e-tron and the technology involved offer us a glimpse of future and hint us how flexible and emotional electro-mobility can be.

Dhiyanesh is equally crazy about driving cars and writing about them. This guy loves everything with a steering wheel, so, at someday if self-driving cars take up all driving, he is sure to go nuts! He likes sedans of 90s era, esp W140 S-Class and R34 Skyline GT. Apart from usual motoring stuffs, he maintains a strong appetite for sociological perspectives on cars, their historical and cultural footprints. He owns a 1999 Fiat Siena passionately, and drives a Ford Fiesta.
