Audi has launched this Spyder version of its e-tron plug-in hybrid sports car at the Paris motor show.
The Spyder variant will be a diesel hybrid in contrast to the pure-electric e-tron, which was shown at the Detroit motor show earlier this year.
It has a twin-turbocharged TDI unit powering the rear axle and a pair of electric motors at the front.
The new concept’s dimensions are similar to those of the original e-tron, though. At 1.8m wide and 4.06m long, it’s 13cm longer and 3cm wider than the all-electric version.
Audi says that the styling “hints at the design language of future Audi sports cars” although it admits that the switch to a roofless configuration is also meant to differentiate this car from the all-electric variant.
