2017 Audi h-tron quattro concept and Engine
Audi landed at Detroit with the h-tron quattro concept, a sporty SUV with technology Piloted and driving hydrogen-powered: the car aims to develop the study of the A7 Sportback h-tron already presented in Los Angeles, offering a ‘ autonomy of 600 km and refueling times around four minutes.
Aerodynamic research. The h-tron quattro concept is distinguished by the very close relationship with the e-tron quattro concept, the pure electric displayed in Frankfurt over the line, both cars share the MLB Evo platform, taking advantage of an assembly of the floor while using virtually identical a different technology. The Suv hydrogen is 4.88 meters long, 1.93 wide and 1.54 high, while the drag coefficient is 0.27, obtained by using elements to enhance the flow of air and employing cameras in place of mirrors mirrors. For the headlights were used both laser technology is the Matrix OLED diodes, used to indicate the mode of autonomous driving.
2017 Audi h-tron quattro Fuel cell and battery
Under the vehicle body, realized with light materials, the h-tron quattro concept presents the fifth generation of the fuel cell technology developed by Volkswagen Group: the SUV is powered by a fuel cell composed of 330 individual elements and housed in the front part, able developing 110 kW (150 hp). In addition, the car uses a lithium-ion battery 1.8 kWh, which was adopted to provide up to 100 kW when necessary and to provide for energy recovery during braking. Fuel cell and battery power two electric motors, one on the front axle (90 kW, 122 hp) and one at the rear (140 kW, 190 hp). Car, clearly-wheel drive, the Audi declares a pair of 560 Nm, 0-100 under seven seconds and a top speed of 200 km / h. Completes the intelligent management of traction, while the efficiency is accredited to 60%, “higher than any internal combustion engine”. Among the solutions adopted to achieve the goal we remember the solar roof, able to generate up to 320 watts, equal to one thousand kilometers more of annual mileage.
Kg to 100 km. For hydrogen (produced in the plant in Werlte like other synthetic fuels Audi), the h-tron quattro concept offers three tanks multilayer at a pressure of 700 bar, placed under the passenger compartment – for four people – and the boot 500 liters: The total capacity of the tanks is not specified, but being at home is enough to travel 600 km. In the NEDC cycle, the h-tron four concepts consumes a kilogram of hydrogen per 100 km, while for refueling enough about four minutes.
2017 Audi h-tron quattro Autonomous and evolved
Inside, the concept features an instrument panel dominated by three OLED displays: there are plenty of gestural commands, while the rear seat passengers are provided the known tablet Audi. The h-tron quattro concept uses the latest technology Piloted driving based on brainy zFAS, equipped with radar, ultrasonic sensors, laser scanner and a new type of camera. This is the same autonomous driving that will be used on the new A8, output in 2017: the system is able to travel alone up to a speed of 60 km / h.
