Audi Teases PB18 e-tron Electric Supercar
Audi will present during the Pebble Beach Car Week a new futuristic electric design study for a puristic sports car of the future – the PB 18 e-tron.
It’s expected that the Audi PB 18 e-tron is all-electric and will become additional support for the upcoming unveiling of the e-tron model, which will jump start the entire lineup of BEVs from Audi (for now there are confirmed two models).
The presentation is scheduled for August 23, 2018 at the Laguna Seca racetrack, but there will be several occasions to see the supercar concept, advertised under the slogan: Emotion instead of emissions: powerful electric drive.
- Aug. 24: The Quail
- Aug. 25: Laguna Seca
- Aug. 26: Pebble Beach Concept Lawn
“Pebble Beach Car Week, held every August in and around the Californian coastal city of Monterey, has long been considered the world’s most important forum for lovers of exquisite automobiles. Interest is not limited here to vintage cars but instead includes leading-edge design study concept cars and visionary technology.
The abbreviated name for the Audi premiere – Audi PB18 e-tron – refers to the Pebble Beach venue and the year of the debut. It likewise recalls the LeMans-series winner Audi R18 e-tron, whose technology inspired the solutions for various details. The styling of the Audi PB 18 e-tron was developed at the new Malibu Design Loft.
The Audi PB18 e-tron will be unveiled at 5 p.m. on August 23, 2018, on the Laguna Seca racetrack. The concept car will then be shown at the legendary vehicle presentation “The Quail” on August 24 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Audi will present the concept car once more in Laguna Seca on August 25 (8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m.). And the concept car can be seen for the final time on Sunday, August 26, at the Concours d’Elegance in Pebble Beach. In parallel to the show car world premiere, Audi is also showing an extensive range of vintage cars and performance vehicles.”
