October 3, 2012 / No Comments

Audi had already broken its silence over its plan to install the motorsport-inspired digital rear view mirror in R8 e-tron. The EV, which is being shown off at the Paris Motor Show, features a fully digital instrument panel located behind the steering wheel, with a new powermeter in the place of normal tachometer.

In addition to this, Audi has also added a large digital center stack with touch capability. The digital center stack combines all the controls of the vehicle including climate control, audio and all most everything that can be adjusted within the vehicle.

It is almost similar to the Tesla Model S digital center stack, which also uses a large digital touch-screen for its center stack. In June, the car sets a world speed record for a series production car around the famous Nürburgring.

With a lap time of 8:09.099 minutes, the vehicle has also become the fastest production car. It can accelerate to a range of 0-60 mph in just 4.6 seconds, and runs about 135 miles on a single-charge.

The intelligent camera installed in the vehicle makes driving safer. The Audi R8 e-tron is expected to go on sale by the end of the year. The cars will be manufactured in a small facility at Audi’s main plant in Neckarsulm. Since the production is limited, the cars could be expensive too.
