Over the past few years, Audi has arguably been working as arduously on electric power as any of its rivals. The German automaker calls its electric prototypes "e-tron", and unveiled its latest concept to use the moniker at the Paris Auto Salon.
The e-tron Spyder is differentiated from its predecessors by its open-cockpit body-style, but its unique qualities don't stop there. The drivetrain couples a conventional twin-turbo diesel V6 with 300 horsepower to a pair of electric motors, distributed evenly across the chassis for optimum weight distribution. If this is the future of hybrid electric vehicles, the future is looking very bright indeed.
