2020 AUDI AI:TRAIL QUATTRO Concept – 1000NM! THE FUTURE EMISSION-FREE OFF-ROADER!
And so, Audi sent me far out to the Swedish forests on the Island of Gotland, to shoot their brand new concept car, the “Audi AI:Trail quattro”. It previews the future emission-free off-roader.
I felt like James Bond, shooting at a secret location, cause there were like 50 people around me, and to get to that place, they had to take the car on a truck and the security was crazy. The car was presented at the IAA Frankfurt Motorshow today, so my weeks of waiting to present you my photos, are over. As the press release says:
“The study takes the shape of a futuristic, buggy-style four-door vehicle with a fully electric powertrain, incorporating four electric motors for a driveshaft-free all-wheel drive. The show car is 13.5-feet (4.15 meters) long, 7.05-feet (2.15 meters) wide, and rides on massive 22-inch wheels with 33.5-inch off-road tires. The ground clearance is 13.4 inches (34 centimeters) and the vehicle should be able to ford through water more than half a meter (1.6 ft) deep.
Thanks to the use of lightweight materials, the AI:Trail Quattro weighs 3,858 pounds (1,750 kilograms), which is a remarkable result considering the four electric motors and the large lithium-ion battery. The latter provides a range of between 248 and 310 miles (400 to 500 kilometers) on roads or “easy off-road terrain” measured by the WLTP. If you go deep off-roading, where energy consumption is higher, the car will be able to cover approximately 155 miles (250 km) at a single charge.
Each of the four electric motors is installed near a wheel and drives it directly. The combined system output is 429 horsepower (320 kilowatts) with a maximum torque of 738 pound-feet (1,000 Newton-meters). Audi explains that “usually only a fraction of this power is mobilized,” which probably hints at some kind of selective deactivation for one of the axles.”
Anyways, enjoy the crazy vehicle.
