Dynamic, flexible and electric: Audi presents expostulate judgment for e-tron S-models

Dynamism 2.0: a pushing experience

The pushing knowledge of a dual prototypes for a Audi e-tron S-models can't destroy to stir with a turn of dynamism, lively and traction increasing once more. In a S gear, both cars go from a delay to 100 km/h (62.1 mph) in 4.5 seconds – roughly seamlessly and scarcely no sound – thrust does not finish until 210 km/h (130.5 mph), singular electronically. Thanksto a absolute cooling system, a expostulate gives a full boost energy of 370 kW and 973 Nm (717.6 lb-ft) of torque in reproducible form for 8 seconds in any case. The favoured values in a D rigging though boost are 320 kW and 808 Nm (596.0 lb-ft).

In terms of handling, a electric S models can't destroy to stir with their superb lively and traction: They can accelerate from a bend as boldly as a sports car, their expostulate impression is many some-more focused on a back wheels and many some-more sporty in nature. If theESC stabilization control is set to “Sport” and a Audi expostulate name energetic doing complement is set to limit opening with “Dynamic” mode, a expostulate blueprint facilitates a high turn of cross dynamics and, on request, tranquil drifts as well. The pushing function is predicted during all times, and is characterized by an ultra-high turn of reserve and reliability.

The expostulate layout: 3 electric motors in a destiny mass production

The new Audi e-tron S models will be a initial electric cars worldwide with 3 motors in mass production. Their expostulate blueprint is formed on a judgment with dual opposite asynchronous motors (ASM); a e-tron product line was designed in modular form in line with this from a start.

The incomparable electric motor, that powers a back spindle in a Audi e-tron 55 models (current expenditure total in kWh/100 km*: 26.4–21.9 (WLTP); 23.1–20.6 (NEDC), combinedCO2 emissions in g/km: 0), has now been commissioned on a front spindle in an blending settlement and configured for 124 kW of power, or 150 kW in a boost. The smaller electric engine now works in a mutated form in a rear, together with a reflection that is matching in design; together, they offer 196 kW of power, or 264 kW in a boost.

Innovation from a quattro pioneer: twin engine with electrical torque vectoring

The expostulate has been automatic for potency in bland life; in normal pushing mode, usually a back electric motors work. The front expostulate is unpowered though switches itself on – with a motorist hardly seeing – if a motorist needs some-more power. It also switches on predictively if a hold declines. It does so when attrition values are low and during fast cornering. The electric all-wheel expostulate is complemented by a serve technical creation in a form of electrical torque vectoring, that brings a advantages of a required competition differential into a electric era. Each one of a back electric motors sends a expostulate army directly to a circle around a transmission; there is no longer a automatic differential. 40 years following a launch of quattro technology, Audi is so lifting a element of a 4 powered wheels to a totally new turn of technology. The result: some-more flexible pushing and self-steering characteristics, and so a aloft cornering speed.
One serve advantage is a traction. If, during acceleration, a back circle comes into hit with a highway aspect with a low attrition value, i.e. if a highway aspect is lonesome in black ice or has a lax subsurface, a impulse can be distributed precisely and fast between a dual motors. The full impulse is gradually distributed to a circle with absolute traction, while a circle with low traction continues relocating with roughly no moment.
The dual prototypes of a e-tron S models expostulate on 20-inch amalgamate wheels in a 5-V-spokeS settlement as standard. Different wheels adult to 22 inches in stretch are accessible on request. To grasp an S-typical cross dynamism, a tire widths in a sizes 20 inches, 21 inches and 22 inches have all been lengthened to 285 mm (11.2 in). Black stop calipers with a red S rhombus, with 6 pistons during a front in any case, hold a vast stop discs (front diameter: 400 mm (15.7 in)). A serve customary underline is a sporty on-going steering – a ratio becomes some-more and some-more direct, a serve a motorist turns a steering wheel. The front and back axles have been combined as a five-link design. Harmonization of a elastokinematics and of a dampers has also been optimized for a S models. In sequence to even serve revoke a rolling movements during cornering, a stabilizers on both axles have been enlarged.

Up to 150 kW: rise power, even during charging

When a motorist is on a road, a electric S models can be charged with adult to 150 kW of approach stream energy (HPC), such as in a European Ionity network. This means that charging from 5 to 80% usually takes around half an hour. An critical cause for this is a elaborate thermal government complement with a customary feverishness pump, that cools and heats a battery, a interior and a electric motors with 4 circuits. In addition, a Audi models will also be means to assign with adult to 11 kW of swapping stream (AC).

The Audi e-tron Charging Service guarantees accessible entrance to some-more than 140,000 open charging points in 24 European countries on ask – with zero some-more than a charging card. In a initial year, Audi covers a simple price for a movement rate, that also offers entrance to high energy charging columns.

Optical statement: widening a circle arches

The absolute and sporty settlement of a e-tron S models facilities Audi’s on-going settlement vocabulary, that emphasizes a clever contours of a wheels. Details such as a octagonal Singleframe, that is for a many partial hermetic and embellished splendid gray, pierce a settlement into a electric era. At a reduce corner of LED headlights, 4 struts emanate a e-tron-specific signature in a daytime using lights. The S models’ heading purpose can be seen true away. The front and back bumpers are heavily contoured, while a diffuser insert runs roughly a full breadth of a vehicle. The fender is flanked by bigger and some-more fluent atmosphere curtains, that urge atmosphere flow. They extend next a headlights, thereby formulating a energetic coming even from a distance. On both sides, a circle arches are a whopping 23 mm (0.9 in) wider. Silver-colored elements – from a mouth of a front bumper, a Singleframe and a doorway inserts right adult to a diffuser – stress a vehicle’s features. Audi will paint incomparable detachable tools in a resisting tone on request.
Both S models are available, on request, with a digital Matrix LED headlights, a worldwide initial in mass production. Their light is diluted into tiny pixels and can be tranquil with high precision, and this facilitates many new functions such as line and course light. In slight areas, for example, it shows a car’s position in a line and so helps a motorist to sojourn in a center.

Progressive: a interior and equipment

The interior of a destiny e-tron S models has been kept in dim colors. A vast arc connects a displays of a practical outmost mirrors with a hood above a Audi practical cockpit. The instrument row is driver-oriented, a center tunnel’s console rests on open side walls. The leather/Alcantara covers of a electrically tractable competition seats and a rigging selector push underline a rhombus S embossing. The doorway sills and steering circle underline S badges. On request, Audi can offer a super competition chair in leather with a rhombus settlement in black, rotor gray or Aras red, as good as an air-conditioned customized contour chair with seperated leather.
