The Audi tron family: New technologies for a mobility of a future

With a plug-in hybrid concept, a A3 Sportback e-tron combines a advantages of a explosion engine with those of electric drive. The whole imagination that Audi has built adult in a globe of hybrid record has been channeled into a concept. The together driveline facilities a 1.4 TFSI operative in tandem with a absolute electric motor. The appetite is transmitted to a front wheels around a newly grown e-S tronic. The liquid-cooled lithium-ion battery is located forward of a front axle; it stores 8.8 kWh of energy, adequate to expostulate 50 kilometers (31.07 miles) quite electrically and therefore with 0 internal emissions.

With 150 kW (204 hp) of complement appetite and 350 Nm of complement torque (258.15 lb-ft), a Audi A3 Sportback e-tron is a sporty reward compress vehicle. It accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62.14 mph) in 7.6 seconds and reaches a tip speed of 222 km/h (137.94 mph). The altogether operation is 940 kilometers (584.09 miles) and a electric operation 50 kilometers (31.07 miles). Consumption totalled in suitability with a ECE customary averages only 1.5 liters of fuel per 100 km (156.81 US mpg), homogeneous to CO2 emissions of 35 grams per kilometer (56.33 g/mile). The A3 Sportback e-tron will go on sale from a finish of 2013.

The A3 Sportback g-tron interprets a component of tolerable mobility in a new, pioneering way. Its 1.4-liter TFSI engine runs on Audi e-gas, a fake fuel that in chemical terms is roughly matching to healthy gas and can therefore be distributed as mains healthy gas. This fuel, that a code with a 4 rings produces during a newly finished trickery in Werlte, in a Emsland district, is CO2-neutral. Its starting components are H2O and CO dioxide, and it is constructed regulating exclusively renewable power. The A3 Sportback g-tron will be nearing during dealers before a finish of this year.

Motor foe is a ideal growth lab for new technologies, and a toughest exam sourroundings is a 24 Hours of Le Mans. At final year’s foe on a Sarthe circuit, a R18 e-tron quattro brought Audi a ancestral double feat with a hybrid racecar that highlights only how most appetite an electrified driveline can put on a road.

In terms of a concept, a LMP-1 antecedent is an formidable racing car, though in countless particular areas it harbors intensity that could eventually find a approach into prolongation models The V6 TDI in a 2012 Le Mans leader reserve over 375 kW (510 hp) and 850 Nm (626.93 lb-ft) to a back wheels. The motor-alternator section (MAU) on a front spindle is always good for 150 kW of additional bearing when accelerating out of a bend. Here it uses appetite that it has prisoner during braking operations and stored temporarily in a flywheel appetite storage system. When both electric motors on a front spindle are active, a LMP-1 antecedent becomes a quattro.

As good as a R18 e-tron quattro, final year Audi brought out a second high-tech automobile – a all-electric-drive R8 e-tron high-performance sports car. It sprints from a delay to 100 km/h (62.14 mph) in 4.2 seconds and is governed during 200 km/h (124.27 mph). Its dual electric motors supply a back wheels with a total 280 kW of appetite and 820 Nm of torque (604.80 lb-ft).

With a physique done from aluminum and carbon-fiber-reinforced cosmetic polymer (CFRP), a multimaterial space support of a Audi R8 e-tron is a latest phenomenon of a ultra lightweight construction record of Audi. Every facet of this high-performance sports cars demonstrates a perfect extent of what is technically feasible. All components are evenly configured for limit opening and range. All Audi prolongation developments will now advantage from a imagination acquired around this project. There is for instance a vast T‑shaped battery that doubles adult as a ancillary component and stores roughly 49 kWh of energy, adequate to expostulate 215 km (133.59 miles). The feverishness siphon controls a heat of a interior and assemblies energy-efficiently. The aerodynamics have also been optimized for limit efficiency. The engineers of Audi have lonesome all pivotal aspects of electric mobility with a R8 e-tron.

The Audi A1 e-tron is a record malcontent of wholly opposite stature. It is recognised as a dilettante for civic driving. Its electric engine achieves rise outlay of 85 kW. The battery stores 13.3 kWh, creation a handling operation of 50 km (31.07 miles) possible. For longer journeys a rear-mounted explosion engine, that in a second growth theatre develops 25 kW (34 hp), charges adult a electric engine around an alternator. Audi is participating in a German government’s “Electric Mobility Showcase” commander plan by using a A1 e-tron in 6 regions around a nation in sequence to obtain some-more unsentimental findings.

The A3 Sportback g-tron and A3 Sportback e-tron already uncover how different a Audi operation of technologies for tolerable mobility is. Audi will be bringing serve pioneering cars onto a marketplace in fast succession.
