Drivers will be able to enjoy longer distance capabilities with the newest Audi electric-powered SUV featured at the International Motor Show (IAA) in Frankfurt, Germany.
Premium automotive manufacturers have been advancing and implementing the latest alternative fuel options in recent years. The demand for hybrid, electric, and alternative fuel vehicles has climbed due to an increasing environmental consciousness and the desire to reduce dependency on oil in many countries. In response to this, Audi is proud to offer an array of diesel and electric-powered vehicles that provide exceptional efficiency without compromising power, performance, or luxury features.
An All-New Audi Electric SUV
The latest advancements in Audi electronic driving technology will be used in the newest SUV all-electric drive model projected to be released in 2018. This model is unique because it was specifically designed from the ground up to be an electric vehicle. Attention was given to every detail of the car throughout the design process. Engineers worked closely with one another to maximize the aerodynamic properties of the Audi e-tron quattro concept vehicle as well as the aesthetics. Sporty and efficient, the SUV is expected to set new standards for the market segment.
Go Further with Audi Electric Technology
The most impressive achievement with Audi’s electric SUV is that the vehicle will be capable of reaching a range of over 300 miles at a time. A large lithium-ion battery provides the power and is one of the most capable batteries to date. The battery is housed between the axles below the passenger compartment giving the vehicle a lower center of gravity and balanced load distribution which also help maximize efficiency. This design also optimizes the safety of the vehicle giving it better control and precision on the road.
Additionally, Audi engineers used their experience with the Audi R8 e-tron vehicle to provide a starting ground for the more advanced e-tron quattro design. The SUV features three electric motors placed on the front and rear axles for optimized power and efficiency.
Comfort and Functionality
The new Audi electric SUV will also feature a spacious and luxurious design. The vehicle is expected to be sized between an Audi Q5 and the Audi Q7 and will feature a sporty coupe-like design. Comfortable seating for four makes the vehicle more functional and roomy and will be a popular choice for those looking for an efficient and capable SUV.
