The German based automaker Audi has recently introduced an updated version of the A1 e-tron.
The updated version of the Audi A1 e-tron now has an improved electronic stability control system and five different levels for the optimized energy recuperation system. Audi is currently testing 80 units of the model which should be driven for more than 1 million kilometers. The testing program has some side projects too, like the Intelligent Charging system, which is allowing drivers to locate and reserve an intelligent charging station and to view the charging status by using a smartphone application.
The Audi A1 e-tron in question is coming with a more powerful electric motor, which is producing 115 HP (85 kW) and it has a peak torque of 300 Nm (221 lb-ft). This represents 13 HP (10 kW) and 60 Nm of torque (44 lb-ft) more than the previous version, enough for a 0 to 100 km/h sprint in 9.8 seconds and an electronically limited top speed of 130 km/h (81 mph). The electric motor is taking its juice from a 13.3 kWh lithium-ion battery, offering the car a total range of 50 km (31) miles on electricity alone. The rotary engine generator will be activated once the battery is low and it will provide it with a 250 km (155 miles) range.
