Audi’s Urban EV Sheds Its Roof
In Spyder form, the car features a wrap-around windscreen and vertically opening driver and passenger doors. Like the coupe, it’s based on an all-new platform made from carbon fibre reinforced polymer (CFRP) to reduce weight and improve performance. Power comes from two electric motors, supplied with electricity from a lithium ion battery pack.
Aimed at providing a mix of performance and inner-city practicality, the passenger sits slightly further back than the driver allowing ample shoulder room and a narrow bodyshell. At each corner, the concept rolls on large, open wheels with an advanced suspension setup tuned to give sporty handling.For more of the latest industry news, click here.
