Performance is also impressive. An electric motor in the front and rear axle makes the Audi four-wheel drive, and the two motors produce 720PS and 960Nm of torque. The 0-62mph dash takes around four seconds, while the top speed will be limited to preserve the battery.
The Audi gets a five-link front and multi-link rear suspension, along with an active suspension system first seen on the current Audi A8. The active suspension can read the road ahead – using a camera mounted in the windscreen – and can lift individual wheels over bumps to smooth out the ride. Meanwhile, information sent from the car’s sat-nav can adapt the suspension to deal with inclines and corners.
