If the designers of Audi had the right to make key choices, the concept supercar PB18 e-tron would appear in serial production. This was stated by one of the main designers of the brand, Andreas Mindt.
So far, however, the desire of designers is not in the ability of a concern, and in order to do so, a number of construction problems have to be made. One of the main problems of the model is its interior with a centrally located driver’s seat. It has to be moved to the left, which means a complete renovation of the interior.
Another difficulty, which Audi engineers have to deal with is the electric system cooling system of PB18 e-tron. It consists of 3 electric motors with a total power of 671 hp – one on the front axle and two on the rear wheels. Additionally, with a concept, there is a possibility of a brief increase in power up to 764 hp.
According to preliminary data, electric-like technical features should accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 2 sec and its maximum speed will exceed 300 km/h. However, this requires a battery with a capacity of at least 95 kW/h. This power is possible for the future, but at the moment such technology can not be used for series production.
As a compromise solution, the weaker power unit from the e-tron GT, which Audi is about to put on the conveyor, can be used. In this case, however, the company will have to make two very expensive two electric cars, and it makes no sense at all.
