Audi is upping the pace of electric mobility. For every vehicle and drive concept, the company develops the best form of electrification – in terms of customer expectations, market conditions, costs, complexity and delight potential. New services such as rapid direct-current charging round off Audi’s premium electric mobility.
Audi is systematically driving forward the electrification of its cars – including below the new high-voltage models. The new mild hybrids are set to make inroads into the model range on a broad front – in ten years’ time, Audi aims to offer all new models with this technology, with the exception of the e-tron lineup. The current 12‑volt electrical system and, above all, the new 48‑volt system offer many ways of making driving even sportier, more comfortable and more efficient.
Audi covers every key area in developing high-voltage batteries for its plug-in hybrid models and electric cars. Its expertise spans cell development, the arranging of the cells into modules, the operating strategies during driving operation, and use of the battery after the end of its service life in the car. The emphasis is on lithium-ion battery systems, which are put together using a flexible, modular concept.
From the e-tron connect app to the future option of rapid charging, Audi offers its customers convenient ways of enjoying electric mobility. The brand with the four rings is successively expanding its range of e-tron systems.
Progress in charging technology is crucial to the success of electromobility. Whether charging with direct or alternating current, the new solutions from Audi for all-electric cars and plug-in hybrids will be extremely convenient for customers. There will also be wireless options. Market launch is scheduled to begin in 2017.
Dramatic, highly efficient and clean: Audi is taking a unique approach typical of the brand when it comes to fuel cell technology. Here again the energy chain is based on sustainably generated electricity.
Audi is designing the mobility of the future in which environmentally friendly produced electricity plays a key role. It not only powers the electric motors in the e-tron models, it is also the powerhouse behind certain Audi e‑fuels: climate-friendly alternative fuels for combustion engines. Audi produces fuels that do not depend on petroleum, that bind as much CO₂ during their production as they emit during combustion. They are known as Audi e‑gas, Audi e‑diesel, Audi e‑gasoline and Audi e‑ethanol. With Audi e‑gas, Audi already offers A3 g-tron* customers climate-neutral mobility.
With the Q7 e-tron quattro*, Audi presents the world’s first plug-in hybrid model with a six-cylinder TDI engine and quattro drive. The SUV sets standards thanks to 275 kW (373 hp) of system power and 700 Nm (516.3 lb‑ft) of system torque: It sprints from 0 to 100 km/h (62.1 mph) in 6.0 seconds and consumes not more than a best-in-segment 1.7 liters of fuel per 100 kilometers (138.4 US mpg) in the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC).
Sporty, versatile and completely CO2-neutral, if desired: Scheduled to launch in late 2016, the A4 Avant g-tron* is yet another offer from Audi for the sustainable mobility of the future. It follows the A3 Sportback g-tron* as the brand’s second model to use natural gas or climate-friendly Audi e‑gas.
It sprints from 0 to 100 km/h (62.1 mph) in 7.9 seconds and reaches a top speed of 200 km/h (124.3 mph). It can cover more than 500 kilometers (310.7 mi) on a single tank, with nothing more than a few drops of water leaving the tailpipe. The A7 Sportback h-tron quattro* uses a 170 kW electric drive system with a fuel cell as the energy source. Each of the two electric motors drive the wheels of one axle. The Audi technical concept car is a true quattro and thus unique among fuel cell automobiles.
Aerodynamically-optimized design with a drag coefficient of 0.25, a purely electric e-tron quattro drivetrain with up to 370 kW of power output – the Audi e-tron quattro concept is an all-electric, full-size class sport SUV. The technology study provides a firm glimpse at the production model to follow in 2018. And it is a statement about the future of electric mobility: It is sporty, efficient and suitable for everyday use.
Wide add-on parts, a powerful rear wing and a power output of 441 kW (600 hp) – the Audi TT clubsport turbo impresses with its power and its spectacular design. The technical concept car, which debuted at the Wörthersee Tour 2015, combines a powerful TFSI engine with an electric biturbo for the first time. This means that it leaves its competitors in the dust after only a few meters.
The Audi RS 5 TDI competition concept uses a technology similar to that in the Audi TT clubsport concept. An electrically driven compressor provides for powerful, spontaneous thrust even at low engine speeds. It works together with a 3.0 liter, biturbo V6 TDI producing 320 kW (435 hp) and 800 Nm (590.0 lb-ft) of torque.
The Audi R18 e-tron quattro is testimony to just how dynamic electromobility is at Audi. The hybrid drive of the three-times 24 Hours of Le Mans winner is designed for motorsport conditions, the most grueling test environment for production development.
