Tesla building confidence in an Audi R8 etron

Uk’s Autocar magazine cites Audi’s Urlich Hackenburg that the Audi R8 e-tron all electric sportscar appears to be greenlit.  This has been an on again, off again project with lots of concepts for the last few years.  Here’s the estimated specs:

250 mile range.  This is going to be a relatively heavy car due to the battery pack.

Rear wheel drive only.  They were considering all wheel drive like the rest of the R8 model lineup but RWD cut weight and increased battery range from about 150 miles.

Price: Exclusive.
