The Audi roadmap for the future Audi is developing the best form of electrification to suit each of its future vehicle types and drive concepts – with an eye on customer wishes, markets, complexity and thrill factor.
High-powered discussion What will electromobility look like ten years from now and what opportunities and risks will it present? Audi development engineers discussed the outlook with experts from TU Munich.
It doesn’t always have to be high-voltage The existing 12-volt vehicle electrical system and the new 48-volt system in particular offer Audi a wide range of options for making driving even sportier, more comfortable and more efficient.
Making it modular In terms of high-voltage technology, Audi is working on complete lithium-ion battery systems with a capacity of up to 95 kWh. Development work is based on a highly effective modular concept.
Fast, clean, convenient From high-amperage direct current for electric cars to alternating current with AWC technology for plug-in hybrid models – Audi will start bringing new charging solutions to market in 2017.
What does the Audi roadmap look like? Is there an alternative to lithium-ion batteries in sight? What is the link between Audi e-gas and clean electricity? Electromobility raises many questions – and many answers.
1.8 liters of diesel per 100 kilometers The Audi Q7 e-tron 3.0 TDI quattro dashes from 0 to 100 km/h in 6.2 seconds, but consumes less than two liters of diesel per 100 kilometers. The big SUV sets new benchmarks.
Green electricity is the driving force Power from renewable sources can supply more than just electric motors. It is also the driving force behind Audi’s clean alternative fuels, known as Audi e-fuels.
CO2-neutral driving on gas Driving with the Audi A4 Avant can be completely CO2-neutral. It can run on Audi e-gas, which is made from hydrogen and carbon dioxide – using electricity generated from wind energy.
Five-cylinder TFSI with electrical compressor Flared body panels, a mighty rear spoiler and an output of 441 kW (600 hp) – the Audi TT clubsport turbo presents its rivals a rear-end view after just a few meters.
