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!
