Audi introduced the newest hydrogen powered concept vehicle at the North American International Auto Show where it won an award for ingenious design.

Audi has always strived to be on the forefront of design and engineering within the luxury automotive marketplace. As a brand, Audi is committed to implementing the highest standards for safety, design, and performance. From the Audi A3 all the way up to the Audi A8 or sport R8, the engineering team puts great effort into creating models that speak to drivers’ unique lifestyles while delivering optimal performance and efficiency.

The Audi h-tron quattro

Recently, Audi was able to share some of their latest innovative designs at the 2016 North American Auto Show, held in Detroit, Michigan. One of the most intriguing models they presented at the show was the Audi h-tron quattro concept. This remarkable vehicle showcases Audi’s plans to combine hydrogen power with Audi quattro technology to provide a new advanced pathway into efficient and capable transportation. Participants responded well to the concept design and the Audi h-tron quattro was also honored with the Eyes On Design Award for its progressive exterior design.

Auto show participants flocked to the Audi showcase area to get a personal taste of the newest innovations in the brands line. One of the popular favorites was the Audi h-tron quattro which also took the award for the “Best Concept Truck” at the auto show. The five-door h-tron quattro was developed to sit between the Audi Q5 and the Audi Q7 to deliver masterful efficiency and maximum functionality. It was chosen by a panel of judges comprised of design chiefs and leaders from throughout the global automotive market and top design schools in the nation. The judges were impressed by its sleek design elements including a low roof line and coupe-like aura. It sits at just five feet one inch and seems to hug the road in a powerful way. The Audi h-tron quattro concept was chosen from a pool of candidates from both production and concept vehicles that made their debut at the North American International Auto Show.

Exceptional Design Fuels Innovative Performance

In addition to eye-catching style, the Audi h-tron quattro also delivers powerful performance thanks to a 110 kW fuel cell combined with a compact lithium-ion battery.   The battery acts as a turbocharger to provide extra power as needed during moments of intense acceleration. The vehicle features a drag coefficient of just 0.27 giving it less resistance and greater efficiency. Thanks to this technology, the model is estimated to have a range of up to 373 miles.

While the Audi h-tron quattro is still just a concept vehicle, drivers can still enjoy leading efficiency and performance technology within the array of 2016 Audi models. From clean diesel to hybrid and electric power options, there is a myriad of choices to select from for those seeking the highest performance levels coupled with advanced efficiency.
