Audi R8 e-tron: Will definitely not go on sale!

Audi R8 e-tron

Unfortunately Audi has decided not to offer the great Audi R8 e-tron for sale.

Audi has confirmed to Autocar that, currently, it has no plans to sell its all-electric R8 e-tron sports car.

Ten of the latest design of R8 e-tron have been built but they will be used exclusively for internal testing and development only.

It’s thought that the the cars won’t be offered to customers because battery technology hasn’t advanced as fast as Audi expected.

Consequently the cost of the batteries has not fallen as much as the company forecast, making the R8 e-tron unviable for series production.
