Audi has held an online presentation of the Skysphere, the first of three electric concepts that provide insight into what the German brand’s electric cars will be like in the future. The novelty received an autopilot and is capable of changing the wheelbase within 250 millimeters.
Stylistically, the Skysphere is fundamentally different from the current Audi production models. There is no radiator grill as unnecessary. Instead, they used a large light panel across the entire width of the body.
A spoiler is located a little lower, and above the panel we note very narrow headlights, unusual for this manufacturer. The rear is almost symmetrical to the front: there is also a light bar and an illuminated brand logo.
Audi Skysphere corresponds to the fourth level of autonomy. When the autopilot mode is activated, the steering wheel retracts under the dash panel and the pedals to the floor. This level of autonomy means that the Skysphere can be driven without a driver in most driving situations. A full-width LCD display is provided in front of the driver and passenger.
Audi Skysphere is driven by an electric motor with a power of 623 hp. and 750 Nm of torque. The concept car is capable of accelerating from standstill to 100 km / h in four seconds. In this case, the weight of the car is 1.8 tons. One battery charge (80 kWh) lasts up to 500 kilometers.
The public premiere of Skysphere will take place in early September at the Munich Motor Show. A little later, the company will present two more novelties of the three announced – the Grandsphere liftback and the Urbansphere crossover.
