Audi e-tron concepts

Charged with excitement.

The next big thing: an all-electric production car from Audi. Two show cars showcase what the future of e-mobility will look like at the brand with the four rings – the Audi e-tron quattro concept and the Audi e-tron Sportback concept. Two important milestones in the e-tron evolution.

Two show cars give an impressive taster of the future of e-mobility at Audi – the Audi etron quattro concept and the Audi e-tron Sportback concept. They embody the continuous development process – from vision, to initial miniature model, to show car. And showcase new ideas without straying too far from Audi production models.

This milestone in the e-tron evolution was unveiled at the IAA in Frankfurt in 2015. The show car provides a concrete foretaste of the future of luxury all-electric SUVs. It also showcases the athletic, contemporary aesthetics Audi is giving its alternative cars.

Audi e-tron Sportback concept.

Another member of the e-tron family was unveiled this year at the spring trade fair Auto Shanghai: the Audi e-tron Sportback concept. The four-door gran turismo represents another critical step towards e-mobility and offers a glimpse of what the production car might look like. The aesthetics combine classic Audi elements with a host of cutting-edge details: an electrifying architecture that has been systematically tailored to the electric drive technology and package. The dynamic digital light design sets new benchmarks.

The Audi e-tron Sportback concept embodies a symbiosis of electrification and everyday usability: it accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.5 seconds and produces up to 320 kW of power (boosting up to 370 kW), and it combines this performance with a high degree of comfort and a range of up to 500 kilometres. Perfect, therefore, for everyday use – and more.

    The lighting technology used in the Audi e-tron Sportback concept illuminates the way into Audi’s dynamic and intelligent future. As an example, its rear lights will use digital animation to provice much clearer lighting for vehicles behind.

    They will also be able to project information onto the road for more safety, by doing things like emphasising braking and extending indicating.

The powerful quattro drive also plays a critical role. Three electric motors, one for the front axle and two for the rear, provide all the power you could need. The total power output is 320 kW, boostable to 370 kW for short periods. With a torque of over 800 Nm, the Audi e-tron quattro concept sprints from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.6 seconds – and quickly reaches the electronically limited top speed of 210 km/h.

The evolution continues...

The two show cars showcase the future of e-mobility and form the basis for subsequent production models. In the coming year, one of them will be rolling off the production line at Audi’s Brussels plant, which will be responsible for future e-tron production.
