According to a recent report, Audi will introduce an R4 e-Tron roadster at the Paris Motor Show.

Details are limited, but the concept is expected to be identical to the R4 e-Tron coupe that debuted at the 2010 North American International Auto Show. The only difference, obviously, will be the convertible roof.

As you may recall, the R4 e-Tron coupe featured a lithium-ion battery which provided power to two electric motors producing a combined 150kW (204 PS / 201 hp) and 2,650 Nm (1955 lb-ft) of torque. This enabled the car to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 5.9 seconds, before hitting a limited top speed of 200 km/h (124 mph).
