Soon an electric supercar for Audi

Soon an electric supercar for AudiPeter Mertens, head of Audi’s research and development department, said on the sidelines of the Formula Electric race in Berlin during an interview with Autocar.

For the German manufacturer, this is not a first. Remember that we could see a first prototype in the third film of the Iron Man series.

In fact, Peter Mertens has not changed his mind, but he has just a different view of the matter than his predecessor - Hulrich Hackenberg - freshly landed following the Dieselgate scandal. But Peter Mertens is a defector of Volvo, which makes things more logical since the Swedish has just announced that all its vehicles would be equipped with an electrical solution however minimal as it is in 2019.

In light of these remarks, it is difficult to follow the logic behind Mertens. The R8 e-tron, a 100% electric sports car has not been successful, nor is the Mercedes-Benz SLS Electric Drive. It is difficult to assume that consumers suddenly have a craving to spend huge amounts for exotic electrics. For the moment, history proves absolutely the opposite.
