Audi Urban Concept Revealed
What we have here is an interesting concept coming from the Ingolstadt-based car manufacturer Audi. This week they’ve released the first sketches with this cool-looking Urban Concept which has a seating configuration of 1+1. This would have to be an extremely light concept car developed mostly for large congested cities and Audi said that they’ve built it from zero, without getting their inspiration from other cars. Their main objective with the Urban Concept was to create a small, efficient and lightweight vehicle.
The concept features free-standing wheels that have surrounding protective plates which incorporate LED light strips. The two passengers of the vehicle sit very low and the cabin offers a sporty position. In addition, the driver of the Urban Concept has the possibility to adjust not only the steering wheel but also the pedals.
Audi created a roof for this car that slides to the rear when opened for allowing access inside the cabin. What this means is that the passenger enters the vehicle through its tailgate. As far as the cockpit is concerned, the German engineers decided to use carbon fiber-reinforced polymer in order to keep the weight down to a minimum.
This very interesting concept from Audi is powered by an electric motor and a pack of lithium-ion batteries, but they didn’t mention any other juicy details.
