Audi is planning to release a powerful full-electric vehicle by 2019. This car will have a sporty look and performance to match. It will do 0 to 60 in just 4.5 seconds and has an approximate driving range of 300 miles on a full charge. It’s going to be a capable EV and a good second step toward creating a capable lineup of electric vehicles.
How the Range is Possible
In order to make the 300 mile range possible, Audi is equipping the vehicle with a 95 kWh battery pack that will hold up over an extended period when it’s finally charged up all the way. That’s a pretty serious battery pack, and it’s going to add some weight to the ride, but the Audi should still feel quick and powerful during regular operation.
Brimming with Futuristic Tech
The latest full-electric Audi coupe is going to come stocked with plenty of cool tech features that will make owning the vehicle even more rewarding. It’s going to come with a set of Matrix LED lights as well as laser lighting and OLEDs to create brilliant light on the outside of the vehicle and to offer communication with other drivers around the vehicle to keep it safer when inn congested driving conditions.
The car is going to get rid of blind spots as well. That’s because a series of real-time cameras will show you exactly what’s on the other side of the vehicle so you can move from lane to lane with confidence that you aren’t going to have any problems.
Audi’s Electric Future
The two full electric vehicles planned within the next couple years from Audi won’t be it for the company. The automaker has big plans to implement even more electrified vehicles in the coming future to go along with Volkswagen’s plans to move toward an EV future. Audi wants to fit at least a quarter of its lineup with batteries by 2025, and release at least three electric vehicles by 2020.
EV fans will soon have plenty of luxury options to choose from, and eventually it’s likely that much of Audi’s lineup will either be a hybrid or full electric vehicle. That’s pretty exciting for anyone that’s sick of inefficient vehicles, and it’s a good direction for Audi to move toward to help modernize the brand more.
Audi continues its commitment to innovation by launching its first plug-in electric vehicle pilot program with the Audi A3 e-tron in cities across the United States. In the following video, David Caffrey, one of Audi’s senior designers explains how Audi is tackling the next phase in the evolution of the Audi e-tron brand.
