2014 Audi A1 e-tron

we have report about Audi A1 e-tron that range extended electric car from German automaker. is no doubt that this is only a prototype and it is not production but we can expect to see it soon.

The Audi A1 is a car sold in Europe, based on a platform to that of the equally Volkswagen Polo.

It s sold in three-door and five-door Sportback variants, and usually comes a range of four-cylinder gasoline and engines.

The e-tron is rather

Audi has binned the reciprocating engines in favor of an 85 kW (114 221 pounds-feet electric motor. combustion hasn t disappeared though under the trunk is a small Wankel rotary acting as a range-extending generator.

The theory is that the Wankel s size makes it ideal for a car like the A1; its small capacity and engine speed reduces the consumption rotary units are known for; and as a rotary it s far smoother and therefore less than a regular piston

We did try and take a peek at the rotary beneath the trunk floor, but a (and firmly screwed-down) cover thwarted our efforts.

We able to test that for the briefest of moments as we switched on the the faintest of hums emanating the rear of the car for ten seconds or so.

The car s conventional-looking allows you to utilize rotary from the start if needs be, for hypothetical zero-emissions cities may require you to hold the battery s charge for entering city

With the lever in D , it s just any other electric car:

The instant torque and compact makes it a breeze to drive in too. Allied with steering, it encourages you to dart for you d think twice about in a equivalent.

0-62 mph acceleration is as 10.2 seconds, but as with electric vehicles, it feels a quicker on the road mainly as its acceleration is unhindered by gearchages.

behind the steering wheel let you your level of braking in four levels, from at all to quite strong regeneration. It s in the setting the A1 e-tron s unfinished status is betrayed. The transition acceleration to deceleration happens a jerk, and not for the want smoother even the most delicate of on the accelerator pedal results in lurching as the regen kicks in.

This is reduced in the lesser but even then, smooth wasn t easy. And stepping from the mark is a little too.

One of the A1 e-tron s cleverest is its ability to talk with the around it.

A form of technology ll no doubt be appearing across cars in the coming years, the knows just what the traffic signal is about to do, and it on the small instrument screen in of you.

Thus, if you approach a green but the car knows you won t make it through it turns red, it alerts you you to slow down early to some energy.

Likewise, sitting at a red light it displays how long the light has to go, so you can sit back and until the final few seconds.

flawed, and missed

It s a real that Audi hasn t with the e-tron as any more a test vehicle found in across Germany.

The rotary engine is an endearing concept, as from an engineering standpoint as it is for its smooth, quiet characteristics.

As a it s a nice little car to drive, if the rotary car s development was cut down in its and means the car isn t quite as smooth to as other electric cars we ve

Previously, cost was cited as the for the A1 e-tron being canned. At $50,000 per vehicle, it simply t have been a viable car for to produce.

However, speaking Audi at the event it was also that internal disagreements led to the being canned. What disagreements might have we can t be sure, but they ve killed a little range-extended electric

More promisingly, it s unlikely has simply discarded what it s from the A1 e-tron, and just the R8 e-tron supercar, those will be heading towards production electric vehicles the A3 e-tron.
