Audi R8 E-Tron Piloted Driving Study Debuts At CES Asia

Audi’s R8 e-tron has been updated for the CES Asia in Shanghai with the company’s piloted driving technology, making it a full-electric autonomous sports car.

The technology study is fitted with a series of video cameras, ultrasonic and radar sensors, as well as a new laser scanner which give the vehicle’s central driver assistance control unit a 360-degree view of the car’s environment.

The all-electric powertrain remains unchanged from the production model and has an output of 456hp (462PS), with an impressive peak torque of 920Nm (679lb-ft) that is available from the first push of the accelerator pedal.

As a result, the Audi R8 e-tron piloted driving concept sprints from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.9 seconds. Driving range is 450 km (279.6 miles) on one battery charge.

Audi says the study “combines a wide variety of future technologies – new solutions in lightweight design, ideas for piloted driving and a powerful drive system.” The company announced it is working intensively on inductive charging, also known as Audi Wireless Charging (AWC), for its e-tron models.
