The Audi A1 e-tron in "Electromobility Showcase" projects

Posted on 10. Jun, 2013 by in Volkswagen Canada

Audi and a A1 e-tron are participating in a German sovereign government’s Electromobility Showcase initiative. To try a intensity of a new expostulate system, a code with a 4 rings has deployed 80 cars in 6 apart projects. A dilettante for civic centers, a electric-powered compress indication also includes a operation extender for additional range.

Compact, agile, intensely careful and with 0 internal emissions, a Audi A1 e-tron represents a new, intelligent form of civic mobility. In 2012, early models lonesome some-more than 50,000 kilometers (31,068.56 miles) in an Audi swift hearing in Munich. Valuable insights into charging and pushing function were gained, and a participants in a hearing were really satisfied.

The subsequent era of a Audi A1 e-tron is some-more powerful. The electric engine drives a front wheels around a single-speed gearbox and produces 85 kW of rise appetite and limit torque of 300 Nm (221.27 lb-ft). The scurry from 0 to 100 km/h (62.14 mph) usually takes 9.8 seconds; a acceleration ends during a governed tip speed of 130 km/h (80.78 mph). The developers have serve softened a electronic stabilization control (ESC) and a preference of a 5 recuperation levels.

The T-shaped lithium-ion battery in a Audi A1 e-tron stores 13.3 kWh of appetite for an electric operation of roughly 50 km (31.07 miles). It can be entirely recharged in around 3 hours on a 220 V domicile outlet. An intensely compress and lightweight single-disc rotary engine in a back of a automobile extends a operation to a sum of 250 km (155.34 miles). The operation extender, that has a cover ability of 354 cc and produces 25 kW (34 hp), drives a generator to recharge a battery. It is not mechanically related to a front wheels.

Audi is deploying 80 A1 e-tron models in a Electromobility Showcase. In a 6 particular projects in that Audi is holding part, a participants will substantially expostulate around one million kilometers (621,371.19 miles). In any instance a code operates with internal partners.

Audi is rising a “Intelligent Charging” plan with 5 cars during a Ingolstadt domicile in June. The concentration here is on a complement for determining a charging and communication infrastructure. 13 intelligent charging stations – 5 in a participants’ garages, 4 in Audi parking garages and dual charging stations downtown operated by Audi’s plan partner Stadtwerke Ingolstadt – promulgate with a hearing participants’ smartphones. Participants can demeanour adult and haven a closest hire or remotely check a battery’s charge.

In a initial proviso of a “E-NUE” plan in Nuremberg, Audi is providing N-ERGIE Aktiengesellschaft with 5 Audi A1 e-tron models for both business and personal use by a employees. Audi will yield one Audi e-tron to any of 5 additional companies in a Nuremberg area in a second plan phase. These cars are also dictated for both business and personal use.

The “Commuting and Charging” plan in Berlin with 25 of a compress electric cars is structured similarly. The users are commuters vital or operative nearby Potsdamer Platz. Audi offers them a customized use concept.

The activities in Berlin and Nuremberg are starting this summer.

Audi is addressing a special organisation of business with a “E-Plan” plan about to start in Munich. The association is loaning an A1 e-tron to 15 private participants staying in a pre-WW II area of Schwabing, where they have to park on a travel and are so contingent on a open charging infrastructure.

“sun2car@GAP” is a name of another plan rising in Garmisch-Partenkirchen in late summer to investigate how a Audi A1 e-tron can work together with private appetite generation: The homes of a participants are versed with photovoltaic systems. The wall box for a car, that is commissioned in a garage, adjusts a charging routine according to a volume of sunshine, a time and a priority of a users. A serve aspect is a simulative union of used automobile batteries as still storage. Audi will be deploying 10 of a A1 e-tron in “sun2car@GAP”.

In Apr 2012, a German sovereign supervision chose 4 regions in Germany as “electromobility showcases” and subsidizes choice expostulate complement investigate and growth in suitability with a fortitude of a German Bundestag. The sovereign supervision is providing a sum of €180 million in appropriation for a showcase program. The large-scale informal proof and hearing programs will exam a interface between electromobility and a appetite system, car and travel system.
