Here comes the e-version! Audi is presenting at the Geneva Motor Show 2010 e with the A1-tron, a study, which is driven by a 45 kW electric motor with a range extender.
With the new Audi A1 surges forward into the small car segment: As early as July 2010 the little Audi is in the starting and dares to attack Mini & Co., the campaign thus crowned with success, of course, it takes an environment-friendly electric power – after all BMW with the Mini E has already submitted. Therefore, the Audi strategist at Geneva Motor Show alongside the production version of the A1 and the A1 s study show tron, Audi’s “Mega City Vehicle”, in German: a compact electric car with premium character. This means that Audi uses e-tron on the model family, whose first representative was presented as a super sports car in 2009 on the ILO. In Detroit, the Ingolstadt showed a stripped down version with two instead of four electric motors, while driving the new Audi A1 is taking a new path.
The Audi A1-tron hums a 45 kW electric motor (short-term peak power: 75 kW), a front mounted transversely and drives the front wheels. Switching is done automatically, the sprint to 100 is completed in 10.2 seconds, top speed is to Audi with 130 km / h. In the first 50 miles of the A1 runs completely electric, then a Nitro jumps added as a range extender – the concept we already know from the Chevy Volt and Opel Ampera. The special feature of A1 e-tron: this is no ordinary reciprocating engine is used, it is a toughened rotary with 254 cc chamber volume, which rotates at a constant 5000 rpm. He drives a generator that recharges the batteries of the A1 with 15 kW. From the Wankel concept, Audi expects a very low vibration, while the drive is housed in the rear of the machine to be barely audible.
