Audi PB18 e-tron getting limited production of 50

By RELAXNEWS | 17 January 2019

INGOLSTADT: Audi will produce a limited series of 50 production models of its spectacular PB18 e-tron concept car, unveiled in the US last summer, according to Audi CEO Bram Schot.

Presented in 2018 at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance in California, the Audi PB18 e-tron is a sporty and futuristic concept.

This Audi PB (for Pebble Beach) 18 e-tron gets no fewer than three electric motors delivering a total power of 500kW, or even 570kW with boosting, equivalent to 775hp. The German automaker announces acceleration of 0-100kph in just two seconds and a range of almost 500km.

Producing this supercar above all offers Audi a showcase to demonstrate its technical expertise in the field of electric vehicles, at a time when the first Audi e-tron models — the SUV that made a splash at the Paris Motor Show — are due to be delivered.

Note that the brand is expected to unveil a new smaller electric SUV in 2019.

The full specifications for the production-model Audi PB18, as well as availability and price, are yet to be announced.
