After all, production is set to begin in 2020 at the Böllinger Höfe plant near Neckarsulm, Germany, the same place where Audi produces the R8. What we do know is that Porsche is making a propulsion system which will provide identical results regardless of the power levels in the battery, and the system might end up in this new and awesome electric Audi. This time with a flat-floor architecture that provides for exciting proportions and a low center of gravity.
Audi says it will go into production in 2020. Dubbed the Ionity Network, the system will have 400 electric stations in Europe by 2020. They underscore the large, calm design of the interior with its predominantly horizontal basic architecture. The broad lines and the numerous functional elements of the body as well as the air vents of the wheel arches and the solid rear diffuser emphasize its origins in the wind tunnel. It's really the best-looking Audi, with a low profile, aggressive hunches over the wheels and clean interior. The required drive energy comes from a lithium-ion battery with an energy content of more than 90 kWh, which takes up the entire underfloor area between the front and rear axle with its flat design. Their dynamic design provides optimum ventilation of the brake disks while also reducing drag.
Here's how to disable adblocking on our site. Now for the less well known stuff. Last year Audi sold over 1. Audi promised that it'd offer over 20 electrified cars by 2025, so expect a lot of news like this to come. Hell, Audi may go as far as replace the slow-selling R8 supercar with the electric coupé sedan. Heck, some have even suggested it will somehow replace the R8.
Audi says it will charge from zero to 80 percent in 20 minutes. Audi is working on a three-motor system with an electric motor at each rear wheel, which allows for advanced torque vectoring capabilities. It's two inches shorter than the current A7 at 4. What do you guys think? In addition to the swept-back roofline, the design shows bulging wheel arches, low flaring side skirts, and several pinched body creases. While the guts will be shared with Porsche awesome , the interior will be all Audi.

In its top-notch form, the E-Tron Quattro features two screens in the central stack infotainment screen and climate control screen , one screen behind the steering wheel Virtual Cockpit , and two screens on the doors above the door handle instead of rearview mirrors. Total system output is 590bhp, good for 62mph in 3. Of course, some design cues will be scaled down, adapted for the sedan shape, but the basic design logic will remain the same.
The platform, with its floor-mounted battery pack, helps weight distribution and keeps the center of gravity down. In a highly-guarded event where Robert Downey Jr. Audi is on new vehicle architectures to accommodate new electric vehicles. Here a charging pad with integral coil is installed permanently on the floor where the car is to be parked, and connected to the power supply. The electronic control system coordinates the drive between the axles as well as between left and right wheels.
Recently, Federal Minister of Economic Affairs and Energy Peter Altmaier criticized German automakers for making boring-looking electric cars. In seven years time it reckons a third, some 600,000, will be electric. The range will cover every relevant market segment from the compact to the full-size class. The vehicle supports fast charging up to 800 volts. Sure, some unique elements have to come into play.
In addition, there will be a range of models with classic body layout such as Avant and Sportback. Sustainable contemporary feel: the interior Four doors, four seats with 2. A 90-plus-kWh lithium-ion battery pack will give it enough juice for an estimated 248-mile range on a single charge, though that number would be lower should one attempt to test out Audi's claim of a 0-62 sprint in about 3. But it was the car, not the hallowed actor, that stole the show. As a result, energy is fed back to the battery in practically all normal braking maneuvers. Interior The highlight of the Audi E-Tron Quattro is the interior.
