Audi achieves pioneering with e-tron quattro drive

— Trendsetter four-wheel drive also in LMP1 sport

— New of e-tron quattro four-wheel system for 2014

— 34 of four-wheel drive expertise in and motorsport

Audi has set another in motorsport. After the brand rally racing with four-wheel drive in the nineteen-eighties and shaped touring car racing this system in the nineties, drive has been making its way LMP1 sports prototypes as The Audi R18 e-tron quattro now to extend ‘Vorsprung durch with a system featuring an development.

In 2012, Audi became the manufacturer to win the Le Mans 24 Hours and the FIA Endurance Championship (WEC) a four-wheel-drive LMP1 sports Equipped with the innovative quattro four-wheel drive, the R18 has won ten WEC to date including the 2012 and Le Mans 24 Hours plus the WEC Champion’s titles in the same In 2014, for the first time, two LMP1 challengers on the manufacturers’ are also relying on LMP1 prototypes with four-wheel

Innovations only become achievements when they’re used and others start to them, says Head of Motorsport Dr. Wolfgang Ullrich. like no other manufacturer, has achieved such feats since the debut of quattro drive in 1980.

In the DTM, as Audi was the first team in to use four-wheel drive in racing, like in Super Touring starting in 1993. In the past two on achieving the string of success in the the brand proved that quattro — the combination of a system with four-wheel — offers significant

Up to now, Audi had been to use four-wheel drive only 120 km/h. But four driven promise to deliver traction particularly at low speed, for instance the driver accelerates on exiting a corner. This year, speed-related rule no longer

A fundamentally new Motor Generator (MGU), together with a sits in the monocoque at the level of the axle. Two drive shafts the system with the front Under braking, the kinetic of the race car is converted into current which flows an optimized flywheel energy device located in the cockpit to the driver.

During acceleration, the recovered is converted again by the MGU and powers the wheels.

We’ve developed the hybrid drive from again for 2014, explains Dr. Mühlmeier, Head of Technology at Sport. Specifically, it’s even lighter and more than before.

As of 2014, a e-machine connected to a front-axle is longitudinally mounted.

Furthermore, front-wheel drive components are integrated into the monocoque of the R18 quattro. The recuperated energy is in a newly designed flywheel storage system.

While the quattro systems of factory-fielded rally models and cars between 1980 and used a mechanical connection in the of a drive shaft between the and rear axles, the power to the front and rear wheels in the quattro four-wheel drive is governed strictly by an electronic unit.

In addition, due to the new efficiency a modified strategy for the engine and system will be used in The e-tron quattro four-wheel with its sophisticated energy is characterized by optimum efficiency.
