Audi set to roll out range of electric cars: report

: Sunday, June 22 - 2014 @ 01:14

German carmaker, Audi has prepared plans for a range of high-performance electric cars to help it take on its local rivals and US firm Tesla Motors if the market picks up, Reuters has reported, citing sources at the carmaker. Audi, a unit of Volkswagen, is about to launch its first purely electric car, a battery-powered version of its R8 supercar, which is due to hit European dealerships in 2015 and will offer a range of 450km, close to the 502 km of Tesla’s top-selling Model S luxury saloon. Production of the R8 e-tron will be strictly tailored to demand. However, Audi has also drawn up blueprints for several high-performance electric saloons and sport-utility vehicles, two company sources told the news service.
