In today's episode of #WhatsupAudi we proudly present to you the premiere of 2 new Audi's, the Audi Q2 & the Audi e-tron S! Also, Luca Di Grassi tells us about a sustainable future.
The Audi Q2:
Four years ago, Audi put a trendsetter on the road with the Q2, and it was a huge success. Now the compact SUV is showcasing its progressive character even more clearly – with an even more striking profile with new headlights on the outside and additional Audi connect services and driver assist systems on the inside. The Audi Q2 is a real eye-catcher – and now it is even more fun to drive.
The Audi e-tron S:
Audi is showing consistency and continuing with its electric offensive – with the new Audi e-tron S. The S model with fully electric drive uses three electric motors, two of which operate on the rear axle. Its intelligent drive control raises vehicle safety, and dynamic handling in particular, to a new level. In addition to the electric all-wheel drive, the vehicle is equipped with electric torque vectoring with active and fully variable torque distribution on the rear axle.
Racing for a reason - Luca Di Grassi:
Formula E representative of Audi and UN ambassador Luca Di Grassi talks about future sustainability. Supporting EV is a first step in improving pollution in affected cities like Delhi in India.

After the summer break, the Audi drivers returned with reports of various holiday activities: Vanina Ickx contested the Diamond Sailing Cup 2007 on the North Sea on 18 and 19 August, operating the sail of a catamaran. Christian Abt, as well, spent his days of leisure on water in August, cruising on a boat between Ibiza and Majorca. Mike Rockenfeller enjoyed a ten-day vacation in Greece. Lucas Luhr spent a lot of time with his family, as did Mattias Ekström in his native Sweden. Timo Scheider was busy building his house in Bregenz that will be finished in October, while Alexandre Prémat, after a one-week holiday in Tunisia, personally fitted out his new flat in Boulogne-Billancourt – from the floor to the electrical system. Tom Kristensen, together with three friends, contested and won a 24-hour mountain bike race in Denmark. Martin Tomczyk spent his free time at home in Bavaria, while Markus Winkelhock relished two weekends at home in Swabia: prior to that, he had been on the road for a solid fortnight, and from September through the end of October, racing commitments will again see him travelling around the world non-stop.
During their summer fest Audi Sport Team Phoenix had conducted a fund raising activity for a charity benefitting children suffering from tumours and leukemia. (www.foerderkreis-bonn.de). At the Nürburgring the team handed over the donations to the organisation and invited an 18-year-old patient, who has meanwhile been cured, to watch the race at the “Ring”.
A special form of appreciation to his loyal fans in the Eifel was shown by Timo Scheider when he invited them to free beer on Saturday night. The racer, who grew in Braubach near Koblenz, not far from the Nürburgring, personally tapped the brew served in 1,000 special cups bearing the message, “Thank you, fans”.
Christian Abt was treated to an unusual surprise by his team. The Audi factory driver couldn’t believe his eyes when he was picked up by a patrol car at the paddock on Friday under some pretext and taken to a police station in Adenau with the blue lights flashing. At the station, the team management, who are friends of the chief constable, presented him on the occasion of his upcoming departure from the DTM with a painting, about the size of 1.50 x 1.50 metres, that was later displayed at the Audi Hospitality. The artist Albert Münch had skilfully captured two scenes from the Bavarian’s racing career on canvas.
Professional footballer Lukas Sinkiewicz paid a visit to Audi during the eighth round of the DTM. The defender of FC Bayer 04 Leverkusen was a guest of Audi Sport Team Phoenix and experienced the Nürburgring as a passenger in the Audi A4 DTM racing taxi.
Audi returned to the roots of its modern motorsport commitment at the Nürburgring: The DTM’s show programme featured an Audi quattro with which the manufacturer has revolutionised the World Rally Championship since 1981. The fans in the Eifel region experienced an Audi quattro, Type A2, that is the private property of the Swiss Daniel Bachmann. The 360-hp all-wheel sportscar with kevlar bodywork and an aluminium engine block was developed for the 1983 season, At the Nürburgring it was driven by the former Finnish Rally Champion Timo Heinonen.
Like real knights Timo Scheider and Martin Tomczyk felt on Thursday: For an ARD TV shooting at the Nürburg castle, the two drivers from Audi Sport Team Abt Sportsline disguised themselves in knight’s armour that made for a perfectly authentic presentation in the fortress that dates back to the year of 1160. Apparently the foray into knighthood augured well: Both “Audi knights” made it onto the front row of the grid.
quattro GmbH hosted its traditional “Rhineland Night”. In addition to numerous paddock guests, Managing Director Werner Frowein and his team welcomed the President of the Cologne Regional Government, Hans Peter Lindlar as well as a number of prominent representatives of Cologne carnival clubs.
The specified fuel consumption and emission data have been determined according to the measurement procedures prescribed by law. Since 1st September 2017, certain new vehicles are already being type-approved according to the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP), a more realistic test procedure for measuring fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. Starting on September 1st 2018, the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC) will be replaced by the WLTP in stages. Owing to the more realistic test conditions, the fuel consumption and CO2 emissions measured according to the WLTP will, in many cases, be higher than those measured according to the NEDC. Therefore, the usage of CO2 emission values measured according to WLTP for vehicle taxation from 1st September 2018 on can cause changes in this regards as well. For further information on the differences between the WLTP and NEDC, please visit
We are currently still required by law to state the NEDC figures. In the case of new vehicles which have been type-approved according to the WLTP, the NEDC figures are derived from the WLTP data. It is possible to specify the WLTP figures voluntarily in addition until such time as this is required by law. In cases where the NEDC figures are specified as value ranges, these do not refer to a particular individual vehicle and do not constitute part of the sales offering. They are intended exclusively as a means of comparison between different vehicle types. Additional equipment and accessories (e.g. add-on parts, different tire formats, etc.) may change the relevant vehicle parameters, such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics, and, in conjunction with weather and traffic conditions and individual driving style, may affect fuel consumption, electrical power consumption, CO2 emissions and the performance figures for the vehicle.
Further information on official fuel consumption figures and the official specific CO2 emissions of new passenger cars can be found in the “Guide on the fuel economy, CO2 emissions and power consumption of new passenger car models”, which is available free of charge at all sales dealerships and from DAT Deutsche Automobil Treuhand GmbH, Hellmuth-Hirth-Str. 1, D-73760 Ostfildern, Germany and at
