The Audi A8 hybrid concept car is a full hybrid car that can either be powered by a gasoline engine or a powerful electric motor. Its utilization of dual power units, namely an electric motor and a 2.0 TFSI engine combine to output 245PS and 480Nm of torque. The car performs just as a traditional six-cylinder engine one does.
The downsized design of this hybrid version of Audi A8 is aimed to improve fuel economy of the car. On the average it only consumes 45.6mpg, which is equivalent to 144g/km of CO2 emissions. This feature alone shows that it has substantial fuel consumption benefits. It’s environmental-friendly and touted as the car of the future, since our quest is to significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
This Audi concept car utilizes an equidistant hybrid configuration – a satisfactory and economical principle that eliminates unnecessary loss of power and friction. The electric motor is integrated between the 8-speed tiptronic transmission and 211 PS 4-cylinder gasoline engine to further provide 211 Nm of torque, as well as 45 PS to the drive-line. Overall, using requisite knowledge and skill in the auto industry, the Audi A8 hybrid concept car is designed to perform in the best possible manner with very minimal waste of effort and time.
One can rightly say that the Audi A8 hybrid design is a complete hybrid car, owing to the fact that it can either be propelled by the combination of its electric motor and gasoline engine or separately by one of them. In the unmixed electric drive mode the H8 hybrid can attain 64 kilometer per hour and cover more than a kilometer worth of distance.
A8 Hybrid Adheres To Standard Technology
It has the A8 standard built-in MMI Touch, which brings to drivers innovative ways of handling the MMI navigation system, without needing to turn their attention away from the road head of them. The integration of a touchpad into the center console enables its driver to choose an album to play, as well as write characters for entering telephone numbers and addresses. The MMI Touch identifies well over a million characters, including, but not limited to Korean, Cyrillic, Japanese, English, Chinese and French. Just like in the regular A8 cars, this system is still controllable with voice.
The Efficiency of A8
The body is built with Audi Space Frame (ASF) and aluminum, to make sure it is far stronger and lighter than a conventional chassis. In reality the A8’s Audi Space Frame is 45% stiffer and 6.5kg lighter than the older model. It raises efficiency, performance and safety to a higher degree, by careful use of hand to weld aluminum and magnesium. While its lightweight ensures that the best performance is attained, the ASF makes it possible to lower to a high degree CO2 emissions and fuel consumption. The highly rigid body provides unmatched safety to its occupants.
Audi A8 Safety Measures
It’s bundled with a pre-sense technical tool, which identifies imminent dangers ahead of time and rolls in adequate intervening measures. The purpose of this tool is to thoroughly prepare the car and its occupants for dangers ahead of them. Pre-sense steadily networks several passive and active safety systems into an integrated single one, to achieve the desired result.
