Holy exclusive! Its hard to come up with a virtually exclusive story in the auto industry but AutoExpress has managed it with a review of the Audi A5 e-tron (for now at least ). To create this latest e-tron prototype Audi took an A5 2.0T and ditched the drive shaft, installing an electric motor at the rear axle and filled the transmission tunnel with lithium ion batteries.
With both 2.0T and electric motor, the A5 e-tron is rated at 314 bhp, knocks down 0-60 mph in 5.9 seconds and averages 104 mpg. The car can also go 30 miles on all-electric power. Most interesting. Read more and see more photos of the car after the jump.
