The e-quattro drive of the Audi h-tron quattro concept
The Audi h-tron quattro concept is equipped with electrified quattro drive. Each motor powers one set of wheels – as on the technology demonstrator Audi A7 Sportback h-tron quattro, which Audi presented in November 2014. The torque can be varied continuously for both axles. Efficiency is the priority for the electric motor management concept. At low loads only the front axle receives propulsive power, and at very low speeds the power is supplied solely by the battery. The e‑quattro concept requires precise coordination of the electric motors – the technology study Audi h-tron quattro offers the sporty, stable and high-traction drive of a production car with mechanical quattro drive.
The Audi h-tron quattro accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62.1 mph) in less than seven seconds; its top speed is governed at 200 km/h (124.3 mph). The silent thrust is already available in full from the start. The energy from moderate brake applications is channeled back into the high-voltage battery by the electric motors. The driver can influence the degree of recuperation by selecting either gliding mode or coasting recuperation. The four wheel brakes only cut in if harder or emergency braking is required.
