It's nice to see from an enthusiast standpoint that not all electric and hybrid vehicles have to be as boring as the Prius. Audi is showing off the e-tron at its first major show of 2010. The car is an all-electric sports car that looks a lot like the R8 to me.

The car is 154.72" long, 70.08" wide, and 48.04" tall. It holds two people and has a gross weight of only 2976.24. Power for the car is from a pair of high-performance electric motors with a combined output of 204hp and a massive 1954.54 lb-ft of torque. The coup can hit 62mph in only 5.9 seconds.

All that torque helps the car go from 37.28 to 74.56 in only 5.1 seconds. That is impressive performance for any car. The batteries are 45 kilowatt-hour units and promise a driving range of 155.34 miles realistically. I bet it’s a lot less than that with someone that has a heavy right foot at the wheel.
