Direct Attack Tesla . Audi has introduced in Frankfurt 2015 a new electric bet as SUV that under the name of Audi e-tron quattro concept knows real stake to the Tesla Model X. conceptual yes, but it is also clear that the arrival of an alternative and production is imminent.
A futuristic and aerodynamic design:
This Audi e-tron quattro concept showcar is yes … but everything is very close to production technologies.
The Audi e-tron quattro concept bet stylistically by a new level out the current design language of the brand, highlighting the wheel arches, reinforcing a set of taillights linked and sporting a front quirky with a grid of new invoice and gills on the hood.
These taillights are developed in OLED while the headlamps are based on technology Matrix Laser , using a combination of LED and OLED for light signature. It seems indeed that OLED is the next big leap in after laser illumination and Audi wants to remain a pioneer in this.
In figures has a length of 4.88 meters, a height of 1.54 meters and a width of 1.93 meters . This length puts it halfway between the Audi Q5 and Audi Q7 … a hint to go with how the Audi Q6?
Of course beyond aesthetics can not avoid the aerodynamic function of its design, demonstrating a aerodynamic drag coefficient of 0.25 .
to an electrical mechanical horses 503
In its mechanics the Audi e-tron quattro concept relies on a electrical assembly of three engines to jointly play a total of 435 horses . This power can temporarily until the 503 horses , with a couple of 800 Nm , with the time function “boost”.
With all the cavalry electric Audi e-tron quattro concept can macar one 0 to 100 km / h in 4.6 seconds being limited top speed of 210 km / h.
For battery lithium ions it is used. It is located in the passenger compartment floor to lower the center of gravity and distribute the best possible weight. Its capacity is 95 kWh and allows this SUV power of range of 500 km .
These batteries can be charged in either a DC jack as an alternate needing only 50 minutes to charge their batteries if we resort to a power of 150 kW DC. Moreover also can be charged by induction and has solar panel in your roof that recharges the main battery.
The chassis also has fairly comprehensive offering a adaptive air suspension and an address that also uses a rear axle steering .
Electrical and autonomous …
The Audi e-tron quattro concept has three electric motors that develop up to 503 horses. Its range is up to 500 km.
A camera, ultrasonic sensors, laser scanner and radar sensors are the weapons of this Audi to once all processing, creating a real-time “image of the environment” that allows this car possibility driving autonomously .
Audi notes that these technologies are almost ready for use in production cars.
The interior, did more conceptual than this Audi?
Opening the door of the Audi e-tron quattro concept we ran into an interior where screens have total ownership . The instrumentation is fully digital, the center console is held by two screen and even uses a touchpad for managing the lights. The forms of the dashboard, the center tunnel or the absence of mirrors also remind us of the conceptual status of this car.
