The Audi E-Tron is a supercar; it is slightly smaller than the Audi R8 but has more visual impact. The Audi E-Tron is all about battery power, half a ton of liquid cooled batteries and four electric motors one on each wheel that generate 3319lb of torque which is more than eight times as much as a V10 petrol engine. The Audi E-Tron is aimed at customers who are interested in zero emissions, the car is capable of 125 miles on a full battery, but if you drive it like a supercar you may run out of power after sixty miles. The Audi E-Tron can achieve 0-62mph in 4.8 seconds and when you hit the accelerator there is no sound of a roaring engine.

The Audi E-Tron has a futuristic exterior and the interior is of luxurious excellence, the price tag on this car will be around the £150,000 but this is the ultimate green dream machine.
