Audi R8 E-Tron

Audi is prepping the automotive industry for the next year with a new documents detailing its future plans. The first item on the agenda are plans to invest a total of €13 billion, in new products and technologies, as well as in expanding its sites by 2016.

"To maintain our profitable growth, we will step up investment spending on new products," said Axel Strotbek, Member of the Board of Management for Finance and Organization at AUDI AG. "The Audi Group plans to invest over € 2 billion annually in new products and technologies."

In their immediate future, Audi will be putting their new A8 hybrid on sale, which will then be followed by the launch of the Audi A3 . Of course, the most awaited model is the R8 e-Tron which will be unveiled at the end of 2012. When the new R8 e-Tron is released, it will make Audi the first premium manufacturer to bring an all-electric sports car onto the market in a small series.

Im not impressed with the design of this car, it’s simple and similar to others. I’m pretty sure it is too expensive because this car is an electric sports car.

I am not excited for the end of 2012 though this is just a start. Why? Because of the new cars that Audi will be releasing, I wonder how those will look like.

This car is an electric sports car? Wow! Amazing as I can see it. Anyway, I am not really impressed with the design of this car, even the wheels are not really that stunning. It is simple and similar to others.
