2015 Frankfurt Motor Show: Audi e-tron Quattro Concept image
The much-awaited Audi e-tron Quattro Concept has debuted at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show.
The model is an all-electric SUV aimed towards the luxury class which will give birth to a production version in early 2018, as the company is announcing. The one-off vehicle is making use of a lithium-ion battery which has been integrated into the floor of the passenger compartment. This is providing the range for more than 500 km (311 miles) and it can be charged through DC or AC electric systems. This also has the Audi Wireless Charging technology.
The new Audi e-tron Quattro Concept stands at 4.88 meters in length, 1.93 meters in width and 1.54 meters in height, getting a coupe-like shape. The cabin is completely new and it is bringing a fully digital instrument cluster, two touch screen displays with black glass, a subtle aluminum frame and much more. Under its hood we can find a total of three electric motors, one of them driving the front axle and the other two being mounted on the rear axle.
The total output produced stands at 435 HP (320 kW) but this can be boosted to 503 HP (370 kW) and more than 800 Nm (590 lb-ft) of torque. In this case, it can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 4.6 seconds and it will go up to an electronically limited top speed of 210 km/h (130 mph). Additional details on the new concept car signed by Audi are limited at this point but you can check it out in the photo gallery posted below.
