While billionaire Elon Husk’s struggle with his electric car company, Tesla Motors, proves to be a fascinated case of entrepreneurship 101, the fact remains that its only working model, the Tesla Roadster, is just an electrified Lotus Else. The necessary boost in the hybrid/electric auto sector might come from the larger players, such as Porsche, with its 918 Spyder Hybrid, soon to be in production, and this from its German compatriots, the Audi e-tron Spyder.

A shared design DNA with its predecessor, the Audi e-tron Concept that debuted at the 2010 Detroit Motor Show, the Audi e-tron Spyder features complete reworked innards. Unlike the all-electric Audi e-tron, the new Audi e-tron Spyder is a hybrid. The convertible is equipped with a twin-turbo V6 TDI, which generates 300hp to its rear axle, and 2 electric motors, with 64 kW, at the front axle. In laymen’s terms, this thing could go from 0 to 62 mph in 4.4 seconds. Since the e-tron is a plug-in hybrid, it will can go on 107 miles on 1 gallon of diesel (106.92 US mpg), or more than 600 miles on its 13.21 gallons fuel tank. To be inconspicuous, designers at Audi devised a cleaver method to shroud the plug unit. Remove the Audi 4 Rings logo on front to reveal the plug unit along with a mini information display on current charge status and range. A smartphone app, specifically created for the e-tron Concept, will also tells you the current charge status and essential information.

No words on whether Audi will put the e-tron and the e-tron Spyder into production. However, if the overwhelming response received by the 918 Spyder Hybrid is any indication, Audi just might do so in the near future.
