Audi has announced that it will build 50 production models of its PB19 e-Tron concept first unveiled at Pebble Beach in 2018. According to Audi CEO Bram Schot, we should expect to see the supercar within the next two years.
With its debut at Pebble Beach, even naming the “PB” after the show, plenty of people thought that the model was there to show an extreme concept version of the next generation R8, but it seems that Audi are prepared to build a limited batch of them for the public.
Three e-motors power the supercar, producing 670 horsepower. Incredibly, the PB can hit 100 km/h from a standstill in just over two second, once again showing the benefits of instant electric power over slower internal combustion engines. A 95-kWh battery pack achieves a 500 kilometres range and utilises an 800-volt charging system that only takes 15 minutes to charge wirelessly.
Whether these figures will be met with the production model is still unclear. But it’s exciting to see where Audi is going with its e-range.
