The Sunday Drive…The Audi e-tron spyder

Upon first look, the 2014 Audi e-tron Spyder appears to almost be an unfinished car. It’s almost as if an Audi A4 went to the automotive barbershop and got a little off the top. This is not to say the Spyder is a bad looking car. It has a very slick look. The car is just another example that electric cars can look just as great as their non-electric predecessors.
At its peak, the Spyder has 385 horsepower and can reach 60 mph in 4.2 seconds. In quite an awesome feature, the point where the car is plugged in is at the front. The Audi logo retracts and along with the plug is a screen that displays the battery’s charge and how far you can go. This is only in the experimental stage, though. The Spyder will run on the electric battery until the car travels over 37 mph. With gas prices continuing to rise, drivers may be happy to hear the Spyder’s gas tank only holds 13.2 gallons, but with its lithium-ion battery, the car can travel about 600 miles. It is believed the Spyder will have a base price of $29,995!
