Audi e-tron quattro concept electrifies 2015 IAA

Snapshot: Will receive a production version at the beginning of 2018.

The Audi e-tron quattro concept has finally received its world premiere this week at the Frankfurt Motor Show and as expected it is based on the second generation MLB architecture which has already served as foundation for the new Q7. The design of the car is actually very interesting as aside from being different than the current crop of Audis, it manages to combine rugged cues with a sporty look enhanced by that sloped roofline.

If you don’t consider the exterior design to be appealing, wait until you hear what’s lurking underneath the body as the Audi e-tron quattro concept uses three electric motors, with one of them powering the front axle while the other two drive the rear wheels. As the model’s name suggests, this is an all-electric concept with a permanent quattro all-wheel drive system that receives a permanent power of 435 bhp or 503 bhp & 800+ Nm when the overboost function is activated.

Just as important is the battery pack which has been integrated in the concept’s floor and enables the vehicle to travel for more than 500 km before the battery is depleted. Charging it to a 100% level takes approximately 50 minutes when using a 150 kW power source while wireless charging is also possible thanks to inductive charging.

In terms of performances, the all-electric concept from Audi runs the 0-100 kmph sprint in just 4.6 seconds and will hit an electronically-governed top speed of 210 kmph. That sleek body has a low drag coefficient of 0.25 while inside the cabin is packed with touchscreen displays that have replaced just about all conventional controls.

Audi has already confirmed the e-tron quattro concept will morph into a production car at the beginning of 2018 and it is believed the model in question will be sold as the “Q6”.
