Audi PB18 Supercar Confirmed With 50 Units Planned

Audi is planning to offer 50 units of its PB18 all-electric supercar concept some time in the next two years.

Unveiled at last year’s Pebble Beach Concours d’Élégance, the Audi PB18 e-tron concept will make it to production either in 2019 or 2020. Audi CEO Bram Schot confirmed the news last week in a interview with Autoweek Netherlands.

We imagine that most available units if not all have already be spoken for and there was no mention of pricing. There are three electric motors powering the new PB18 e-tron, one up front and two attached to the rear wheels.

Total output is rated at 670 horsepower, but you can command a short boost where 764 horsepower gets unleashed. It takes a little over 2.0 seconds for the Audi PB18 e-tron to get to 100 km/h.

The PB18 packs more than just tremendous power. It’s body components are all designed to improve aerodynamics or ensure cooling. The massive Audi hexagonal grill is front and center, but this time it’s flanked by two inlets that direct air flow to the forward electric motor and the brakes.

Looking like something straight out of a video game, the PB18 is a fairly massive car. It’s 2 meters wide and measures 4.53 meters long. It’s very low, measuring barely over a meter in height.

Inside, there’s room for either just one passenger or two as the concept could reconfigure the interior layout as needed. We’re thinking Audi will go with a traditional two-seat interior for the production version.

Lastly, there’s actually quite a bit of interior space for bags inside the PB18 with 470 liters of cargo space. That’s more than a Honda Accord.

The PB18 serves as the perfect flagship for Audi’s new e-tron lineup that already includes the e-tron Quattro SUV and soon the e-tron GT electric sedanAudi PB18 e-tron Audi PB18 e-tron Audi PB18 e-tron Audi PB18 e-tron Audi PB18 e-tron .
