LA Auto Show 2009: Audi's e-tron Stuns in Orange

By John Coyle

Deputy Editor

This electric concept actually dropped in Frankfurt, but the one on the floor there was a comparatively staid fire-engine red. The e-tron Audi brought to LA, on the other hand, is painted in an orange that’s probably visible from space, even through the roof of the Los Angeles Convention Center. The body is so smooth and clean it almost looks like this eco-beast  was grown in a vat, and not constructed by something as mortal and clumsy as human hands. I don’t really care for the wheels—they look a little too much like food processor blades—but overall, this car is a complete knockout, and getting these few shots probably took close to an hour, because all the media peeps were swarming over it. The scene honestly made me think of killer bees attacking a bull. Oh, and it’s hard to argue with 3,319.03 Lb-Ft of torque. More photos and a walk-around video after the jump.

THE WHEELS LOOK LIKE HOUSE ORNAMENTAL LIGHT COVERS

There’s something sophisticated and “next-generation” about Audis. This E-Tron certainly follows suit. Very nice!

The best part about all that torque… It’s peak is at 0 rpm, perfect for launching right off the line.
