Audi e-tron Spyder Concept
The Audi e-tron Spyder is the third car in the e-tron series. Featuring a rétro-inspired open layout and a hybrid plug-in powertrain, it evolves the brand’s design language by using elements of the previous concepts as well as styling cues from the current models.
The design of the Spyder is strongly based on the e-tron Detroit Concept, especially in the front and in the side view.
Compared to the e-tron Detroit, the Spyder has slightly larger dimensions, with a length of 4.06 m, a width of 1.81 m, a height of 1.11 m and a wheelbase of 2.43 m.
They form a single unit with the windshield, which is strongly bowed and "inclined like the visor of a helmet."
The the rear end features a dark-grey fascia that integrated the LED tail lights and the rear grilles. Both these elements show a clear inspiration from the R8 supercar.
The e-tron Spyder has a hybrid plug-in powertrain with a rear-mounted 6 cylinder TDI engine capable of 300 hp – derived from the biturbo unit of the A8.
The engine is combined with two front-mounted asyncronous electric motors with an output of 88 hp. The transmission features a 7-speed DSG gerbox and an all-wheel-drive system.
The main performance are a 0-100 km/h acceleration in 4.4 seconds, a top speed limited to 250 km/h and an average fuel consumption of about 2.2 liter/100 km.
