Audi Teases PB18 e-tron Electric Supercar

JUL 30 2018 BY MARK KANE 10

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.”

Now we are talking… Lets see it….

Yeah, the profile looks like it has potential.
Hope to see EVs like that on the street.

Since Audi, and Porsche have the same parent, is it safe to assume there is some tech sharing between this car and the Taycan?

Just as safe to assume the (convicted) parent company that head-faked the R8 e-tron, is doing the same thing here.

Yeah VW brands share technology, parts, buy materials in bulk and so on – just like other huge car companies. That is why it’s an advantage of being big in the car industry and sell volumes of each model.
At the same time, they try to differentiate the different brands, and cater to different markets/customers with each brand.

No more teases,press releases or promises.

We need BEVs at Audi dealerships.

You are not going to see supercars in dealerships often unless its McLaren or Lambo or the like. For normal BEV, yes bring them along and not a ridiculous prices Audi!.

Who wants an Audi still?

The pic reminds me of the Avus concept from years ago, but with sharper edges.

Read my lips: NO. MORE. CONCEPTS!

Thank you.
