    • Next gen 2022 Audi R8 to be EV only with 1000+ horsepower - Tesla Roadster rival?

      If Audi wishes to differentiate the R8 from its Lamborghini sibling this is one way to do it. Autocar is stating the next generation R8 will be available only as an electric vehicle. It is expected to pack a huge punch offering over 1000 horsepower.


      Clearly this is meant to rival the upcoming Tesla Roadster. That is fine, but abandoning the internal combustion engine entirely for the R8? Wow.

      Not that Audi has not toyed with electric R8's before. The on again off again then on again then off again then sort of on again R8 E-Tron was an electric R8 project with all sorts of problems.

      This second time around for the electric R8 no doubt will be much more successful as the Volkswagen Group is going all out pushing for electric cars especially in the performance realm as their I.D. R Pikes Peak car showed.

      The all electric automotive era is coming up fast.
