Audi A1 e-tron: First hit Munich roads next

Posted by quattroholic at 11:09 PM. November 10, 2010

Audi has new details, photos and video of the A1 today. In a company statement, revealed: In 2011 Audi be joining three project the energy supplier E.ON, the public utility company and Technical University in launching a test with the A1 e-tron. By the of the year the first vehicles be hitting the road in the Bavarian while at the same time 200 new stations will become After the jump.

The A1 e-tron is an electric vehicle, along exclusively by electricity and emission-free. It’s a full-fledged with four seats, and designed for traffic in the world’s mega cities and other areas.

Many details the comprehensive new approach pursued by the with the four rings the A1 e-tron. Carbon fiber visibly put Audi’s lightweight to the test. Solutions such as internet connectivity with navigation and a WLAN hotspot the great little guy to be a vehicle for customers.

The Driving Experience

The first in the Audi A1 e-tron feels like the take-off in a plane. The accompanying a step on the pedal is powerful but the acceleration is practically with only soft and wind sounds to be heard. And the flows without interruption, there are no gear changes and no pauses for shifting.

This and sporty type of motion, the driver to concentrate fully on the affords pleasure in a novel The quiet power alone is for fascination. The lush torque of the motor becomes fully practically from a standstill.

The experience in the A1 e-tron is consequently different compared with a engine vehicle.

The Technological

The Audi A1 e-tron embodies an and sophisticated technological concept. A battery pack provides the for the electric drive. The driver charges the battery pack the grid most conveniently, a home socket.

Full charging suffices for more 50 km in most cases that’s than enough for daily as numerous studies have

In the event that the driver to travel a longer distance, the city vehicle from has a range extender on board a combustion engine that the battery to extend the range 250 km (155.34 miles). The Audi A1 always travels electrically no of mechanical connection exists the range extender and the driven wheels.

The ancillary units of the A1 e-tron are A high-voltage refrigerant compressor according to the current power drives the air conditioning system, for greater efficiency compared conventional concepts. The power operates electrohydraulically as in the series model, and is therefore also energy efficient.

The hydraulic system includes a brake with the vacuum supplied by an operated pump, also

The compact 2-door vehicle all the strengths of the Audi A1 model a small turning radius, clarity and high agility. The gear is carefully tuned, pleasant comfort with a character. Going with the of the future doesn’t entail the sacrifice for the A1 e-tron, especially the interior space and the luggage capacity match those of production models.

The Electric

The synchronous motor of the Audi A1 is mounted transversely in the front, its low installation benefiting the center of It has a continuous power of 45 kW (61 hp), a torque of 150 Nm (110.63 lb-ft) available from a standstill. The performance lies at 75 kW (102 the maximum torque at 240 Nm (177.01

The powerful little guy from thus accelerates in 10.2 from 0 to 100 km/h (62.14 and continues to a top speed of over 130 (80.78 mph).

The torque flows to the front via a single-staged transmission flanged to the motor. The selector lever from the series production following the appropriate adaptation. The are D, R, N and Range on this level the extender is activated depending on the operating strategy; the electronic system cuts in the extender smooth transitions.

The current requirement and the energy level of the are the most important factors.

In the compartment next to the electric is the power electronics, which the electric traction. The DC converter the 14 V electrical system to the high-voltage the switching unit for protecting the components and the charging module are accommodated in the front end.


Shaped like a T, the battery of the Audi A1 e-tron is located the rear part of the center and under the rear seats the position for weight distribution. The battery, operating at 270 volts, has a energy level of 12 kWh, and is to stay within an optimal range.

The socket for the standard plug is located behind the in the single frame of the Audi A1 A fully discharged battery less than three charging from a 230 V grid; a 380 V current reduces the time to than an hour under conditions. A display next to the connection shows the remaining time and the charge state.

This value and the current also appear in the driver’s display of the instrument cluster.

travel the large electric driving the A1 e-tron can convert the energy into electric and feed it back to the electrical by operating briefly as a generator. The return flow begins the driver releases the accelerator.

The of the recuperation is controllable in five by rocker switches on the steering At stage 1 the deceleration is slight, and at 5 considerable. In urban traffic the A1 can recover through recuperation a third of the energy needed for

When the rocker switches lie at 0 and the releases the accelerator, the mega vehicle needs no energy at all it glides.

The Range Extender

A single-disk rotary piston serves as the range extender on the Audi A1 e-tron. It has a chamber of 254 cc (15.5 cu in) and constantly runs at rpm in its optimal efficiency range. The piston engine drives a that produces up to 15 kW (20 hp) electrical power.

The great strengths of the piston engine are its vibration-free and noiseless operation, small and the extremely low weight. Including the the entire assembly group about 65 kg (143.30 lb). weight already includes the power electronics, the intake, and cooling systems as well as the encapsulation and the auxiliary frame.

According to the draft for standardization for the consumption of range extender the rate of fuel consumption by the A1 e-tron is just 1.9 liters per 100 km US mpg) a CO2 equivalent of only 45 g per km g/mile). The fuel is supplied a tank with a capacity of 12 (3.17 US gallons).

The Design

The A1 e-tron is specially painted in Mint, pearl effect, the roof contrast arch is High Gloss Steel. The the rear spoiler and other are made from carbon reinforced plastic (CFRP), Audi’s expertise in lightweight

Missing from the rear are the tailpipes a solution highlighting the width and the emission-free drive. The lettering appears on the front

The Interior and Equipment

In the generously interior of the A1 e-tron the door and the center console are covered by leather in titanium gray. Audi, the operation and the display are entirely uncomplicated.

The equipment all the desires of an urban customer. by a sporty lightness, the interior space and connection options for such as an iPod. Like A1, the Audi A1 e-tron also for space, for music, for communication, for and for quality.

And it stands for a contemporary lifestyle for and form, for freedom and individualism.

The of the mega city vehicle Audi also includes the LED lighting package and the top solution the infotainment systems the powerful MMI plus with 20 GB hard high-definition 6.5-inch monitor and map graphics.

The Audi A1 e-tron connects to the internet through a module, to provide the same features as found in the Audi A8 navigation with map imagery Google Earth and a WLAN for connecting passengers’ mobile equipment, such as an iPad. The connection is fast, secure and of additional charges.
