Images from Audi’s JIMS 2011 stand

The Johannesburg International Motor Show is in full swing, and Audi has unveiled a spate of models in production and concept form.

Models on the stand include Audi’s futuristic concept, the e-tron. This model is powered by four electric engines, of which two are located behind the rear axle with their own cooling systems, while two are situated on the front axle for a 42:58 distribution of weight. The four engines boast a combined 230 kW, which Audi claims propels the e-tron from zero to 100 km/h in 4,8 seconds and from 60 to 120 km/h in 4,1 seconds. The e-Tron’s top speed has been limited to 200 km/h, with a range of approximately 248 km on a full charge.

Also on the Audi stand is the RS3, R8 GT, A7, A1, Q7 and much more.

    Is that all? No Q3, no A5 facelift,no s6,s7,s8? Not one South African premiere except of the e-tron concept and the r8 GT which are at least one year old.
    That’s very disappointing and lame Audi.

    The Q7. Seems definitely targeted at ANC Cabinet Ministers. Audi looks dull and boring.
