Audi e-tron extreme - Technology demonstrator test on legendary “Streif”

Description

In late January, Audi sent its first fully electric-powered SUV onto the slopes where the world’s best ski racers battle for victory in the Hahnenkamm Race. The specially equipped Audi e‑tron climbed the “Mausefalle” on the legendary “Streif”. With an 85 percent gradient, it is the steepest section of the spectacular downhill course. With an 85 percent gradient, the “Mausefalle” is the steepest section of the famous “Streif” downhill course in Kitzbühel. To climb this passage, the Audi e‑tron technology demonstrator was equipped with a special quattro powertrain with two electric motors on the rear axle and one electric motor on the front axle. The technology demonstrator achieved a total boost output of up to 370 kW and wheel torque of 8,920 Nm (6,579.1 lb-ft). This ensured full performance on the steep gradient. Audi also modified the software with respect to drive torque and torque distribution for the special conditions on the “Streif”. 19-inch wheels with spikes developed specifically for this driving event provided the necessary grip on snow and ice.

  • Audi e-tron prototype extreme - Recuperation test at Pikes Peak

    At 4,301 meters Pikes Peak looms high in the southern Rocky Mountains. The best place to test the unique and most innovative recuperation concept of the Audi e-tron prototype. The scenario: each kilometer downhill brings around an additional kilometer in range. So on its 31 kilometer downhill drive the electric SUV feeds so much energy back to the battery that it can cover approximately the same distance again. Unrivalled!

  • Audi e-tron Technology Tutorial - Route Planner

    Another element of Audi connect is the e-­tron route planner. The customer can use it either in the in-car MMI system or in the myAudi app. In both cases they are shown the appropriate route with the required charging points. Besides the traffic situation, the computation also considers the battery’s charge level. The projected arrival time includes any required charging time. The e-tron route planner includes DC charging stations along with most AC charging stations throughout Europe.While driving, detailed information about the remaining range is displayed in the Audi virtual cockpit and in the top MMI display. The driver receives staged warnings if this drops below 100 and 50 kilometers (62.1 and 31.1 mi), respectively, and the closest charging station is displayed. In addition, the driver can select range mode in the MMI system to maximize the remaining range. This restricts the top speed to 90 km/h (55.9 mph), adjusts the settings for comfort functions such as heating/cooling or turns off seat heating.Charging planning is continuously updated to the prevailing conditions. For example, an alternative suggestion is made if a targeted DC quick-charging station can no longer be reached. While actively charging, the battery’s current charge status and the remaining charging time is shown on both the in-car display and in the myAudi app. Customers can also opt to receive push notifications as soon as they can continue their journey.
