Frankfurt Show Highlights: Audi E-Tron Quattro Concept
Clean, simple, sleek and roomy probably are the right words to describe the interior of the concept car. Say goodbye to the complicated buttons on the center cockpit. Audi replaces it all with touch screens which has OLED technology. Just like Audi’s latest cars, the E-Tron Quattro comes up with virtual cockpit display that will inform the driver about map, battery status, range driving, and even music that is playing. At least but not least, the crossover concept has 615 liters of luggage.
The car with drag coefficient of 0.25 has 95 kWh battery capacity and 3 electric motors that drives front axle (1 unit), and rear axle (2 units). Total output is 429 hp, but while boosting it can produce 496 hp for short periods. Furthermore, it has 800 Nm of torque and its performance from 0 km/h to 100 km/h is 4.6 seconds. Meanwhile, its top speed is electronically-limited up to 210 km/h and its driving range is 500 km.
The battery can be charged using current DC electrical with 150 kW output and it takes around 50 minutes until it’s fully-loaded. The concept study also brings autonomous driving technology which is equipped with radar sensors, a video camera, ultrasonic sensors, a laser scanner, and central driver assistance controller (zFAS). Audi claims that the technology is nearly ready for production cars. I expect to see it in next-gen Audi A8.
