Audi E-Tron Sports Back Concept
The E- Tron will make an electric mobility that is not just sustainable but exhilarating charged with electrifying designs, breathtaking driving and innovative technology to give you almost limitless freedom. The concept car was first revealed at the Shanghai auto show in 2017.
The Audi e-Tron sport back concept technology study uses three powerful electric motors; One on the front and two on the rear axle. The electric motors are highly efficient over a wide engine speed range, including low and intermediate load. This results in a satisfying driving pleasure above all with a high range.
The electric motors produce a total of 320kwh (429 horsepower) with a boost mode that elevates that output to 370kw (496 hp). The concept car is capable of pulling a 0-62 mph of approximately 4.5 seconds. This is made possible by the liquid-cooled 95kwh lithium-ion battery, which powers up a 311 miles/ 500km of driving range. The cars top speed is 210km/h (130.5 mph).
The combining charging system with two connectors enables charging with AC and DC. The DC current has the charging power of 150kw meant to charge its large battery that is able to store up energy, meant to cFevover up to 400km (248 miles) in just 30 minutes.
Audi also installed an induction charging system. With this innovative charging socket, the e-Tron sports back concept can easily charge with the contactless inductive charger. This is achieved by the car sitting a charging pad with integral coil on the floor where the car is to be packed and connecting it to the power supply.
The focus is on not just powerful performance, but also maximum efficiency. Before even starting out, the driver can have the Audi e-Tron Sports back concept compute a drive train strategy to minimize energy consumption. Up to moderate braking, the electric motors are solely responsible for decelerating the vehicle. The hydraulic brakes only come into play for heavy braking. The driver can adjust the degree of recuperation in stages. At the lowest setting, no energy is recovered at all in certain situations. Instead, the isolated drive allows the coupé to coast without any retardation torque – one of the most effective strategies for increasing the range.
The concept features Audi's single-frame grille, with an illuminated four-ring logo. The front of the car is shaped for optimal airflow, and the dip in the hood also gives it a uniquely sporty look. Audi was the first in the world to adopt full LED headlights and gave matrix LED technology, laser lighting and led the brand towards its significant breakthrough.
Narrow light strips on both sides below the front lid – the daytime running lights – became the eyes on the face of the car. Thanks to a combination of LEDs and a micro mirror-studded surface plus complex control technology, a large number of animated movements and signatures are possible. When the e-Tron Sport back starts and also when the doors are opened, the system uses switchable segments to generate dynamic visual welcome signals.
Its 23-inch wheels are imposing, giving the car a muscular stance. Side mirrors are replaced by slender cameras, which improve airflow and provide a better view of the car's surroundings, helping to eliminate blind spots.
