Audi is launching into a new design era: At the Los Angeles Auto Show, Marc Lichte, Head of Design, is presenting the Audi prologue concept car. Lichte is giving the Audi brand a new styling direction in the large coupe.
It covers over 500 kilometers (310.7 mi) on one tank of fuel – and its exhaust emits nothing more than a few drops of water: The A7 Sportback h-tron quattro uses a powerful, sporty electric drive with a fuel cell as its energy source, in combination with a hybrid battery and an additional electric motor in the rear. Its drive configuration makes the emission-free Audi A7 Sportback h-tron quattro a quattro through and through, with 170 kilowatts of power at its disposal – a new departure in fuel cell cars. There is no mechanical connection between the front and rear axles. As an e quattro, the A7 Sportback h-tron quattro features fully electronic management of torque distribution.
Audi MediaTV is broadcasting live from the L.A. Auto Show 2014 and covering the Audi Press Conference in full. The brand with the four rings is presenting the first show car created by new design chief Marc Lichte, with an interior and exterior to redefine the benchmark. Another pioneering development is the Audi A7 Sportback h-tron quattro technology demonstrator, a plug-in hybrid with hydrogen fuel cell.
