Audi has long flirted with the idea of an electric supercar, even producing an R8-based E-Tron for a single year, back in 2015. Based on a report from February 2020, though, it’s a virtual certainty that the R8 will be at least somewhat electrified. It’s too soon to tell whether the third-gen R8 takes the form of a plug-in hybrid or a full battery-electric vehicle, but Audi seemed to hint that both options are on the table.
