2017 Audi R8 is quite promising to come out with great changes around its aspects to make it much better and acceptable once it is released on the market. It could be the leader for its segment.

From the previous announcement, there is a strong suggestion that the company should offer electric drive and plug-in hybrid right after Audi launches the gasoline version. Because it is designed as a supercar, it should have lower pollution level and it means that the green sources could be gained from the eco-friendly battery. The 2017 Audi R8 could be the winner if the company knows the powerful engine that should be combined with the high-capacity battery pack. As we know that the previous battery only could go about 49 kWh and it should be changed to be 92 larger kWh so that the car is able to reach about 280 miles per charge. This electricity is also expected to generate about 455 horses and 679 pound-feet of torque. The maximum speed in this new version could be from 131 mph to 155 mph depends on the engine setup. With this engine system, the car is able to accelerate from 0 to 62 mph in just 3.9 seconds.
