Second successive win for Audi on the Silvretta Electric Car Rally

Audi has repeated last year’s victory on the recent Silvretta Electric Car Rally, by taking a second successive win on the event. Where as the 2010 rally was won by the company’s R8 e-tron, this year saw its baby brother, the A1 e-tron, take the top step of the podium. The rally, held in Austria’s Montafon region, lasted three days, and saw all 32 competitors cover a total of 307 kilometres.
“The car ran flawlessly. We’re now looking forward to the 2012 rally. We already have a few ideas about the kind of concepts we’ll enter with, of course,” remarked Franciscus van Meel, Head of Audi’s Electromobility Strategy.

The A1 e-tron is propelled by a 75 kW electric motor which draws power from a lithium-ion battery with a capacity of 12 kWh. The battery allows a range of 50 kilometres and can be completely charged in 30 minutes (quick charge), or in less than three hours (standard charge).
