From Ultra To E-Tron - Audi At 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show
|   Sunday, September 27, 2015
In the 2015 edition of the International Motor Show (IAA) in Frankfurt, Audi presented numerous new products. The focus was on the new Audi A4 range and the Audi e-tron quattro concept - a sporty SUV with pure electric propulsion.

The company offered visitors information about the future of the four main themes of the brand - Audi Sport, quattro, Audi Technologies and Audi ultra - and presented the full range propulsion concept.

Audi continues to increase TDI and TFSI engines efficiency with new technologies.
The brand is exploiting the potential of conventional engines. The models with the lowest CO2 emissions in each range wear the emblem ultra. The new Audi A4 2.0 TDI ultra debuted at this year's edition IAA.

The new generation Audi A4 impresses thanks to the balanced and sporting driving experience, comprehensive selection of infotainment solutions and intelligent assistance systems, as well as the adaptive cruise control including Traffic Jam Assistant. Drivers are assisted by up to 30 optional systems.

The midsize model reaches top values in terms of efficiency. The A4 Sedan is extremely aerodynamic and has the best Cd value of its class, which means 0.23. The concept is supported by lightweight construction and ultra-efficient engine as well as the 2.0 TDI with 110 kW (150 hp). This engine reduces fuel consumption for the limousine to 3.7 liter per NEDC cycle, and CO2 to 95 grams per km. The new 2.0 TFSI ultra is equivalent to that above in all respects. Thanks to an innovative combustion process, the gasoline engine with 190 hp consumes just 4.8 l / 100 km and emits just 109 g CO2 / km.

For Audi the future is sporty, charged with emotion and extremely effective. Thus, the Audi e-tron quattro concept provides a look into the future on the first series production electric vehicle of the brand, which will enter the market in 2018. It is based on the second generation of modular longitudinal platform offering a considerable degree of freedom in configuration.

The sporty SUV design is based largely on aerodynamic requirements - with a Cd value of just 0.25, the vehicle sets new references in the SUV segment. Electric propulsion comes via 3 electric motors which provide up to 370 kW and is in accordance with the e-tron quattro concept. Li-Ion battery technology located in the floor provides a range of over 500 km, thus providing daily utility. Innovative technical solutions on how to operate the infotainment system also offers a high degree of comfort. Audi e-tron quattro concept is equipped with piloted driving system.

Audi Q7 e-tron quattro is the first plug-in hybrid with a TDI engine and quattro drive from Audi. With an output of 275 kW (373 hp), it accelerates from 0 to 100 km / h (0 to 60 mph) in 6.0 seconds and can be driven up to 65 km in pure electric mode.

Regarding the Q5 and A8 model range, the brand has two new models, which express the top sportiness in each of the two segments: the Audi SQ5 TDI plus with the 3.0 TDI twin-turbo engine gives a power of 250 kW (340 hp) and the Audi S8 plus offers 445 kW (605 hp).
