Audi activesphere concept – this is the name of the fourth model in the family of concept cars that Audi has been introducing since August 2021.
The Audi activesphere concept, which is set to debut at the beginning of 2023, claims to offer maximum variability for an active lifestyle – both on and off-road.
Audi’s sphere concept cars collectively showcase the vision of the premium mobility of tomorrow. This technical layout gives rise to entirely new designs, especially of the interiors and the offerings for those on board to use their time productively or just relax.
Not only do they all have electric drives, but they’re also designed to be capable of automated driving.
The activesphere coupe-crossover is the latest in its family of ‘sphere’ concepts.
The first of the sphere concept lineup was revealed in August 2021 with the Audi skysphere concept, which is a spectacular two-door convertible whose lines lead directly to the Audi design of tomorrow.
The skysphere is powered by rear-wheel drive electric powertrain with 465kW of power and 750Nm of torque, good for a four-second sprint to 100km/h. The battery capacity is more than 80 kWh, giving the car a range of more than 500 kilometers.
The second sphere concept was the Audi grandsphere concept, which previews an upcoming luxury electric flagship.
The Audi grandsphere concept’s two electric motors are capable of delivering a total output of 530 kW and a torque of 960 Newton meters. It features a 120kWh battery with a claimed electric range of over 750km according to WLTP testing.
The third sphere concept was the Audi urbansphere concept developed for use in traffic-dense Chinese megacities, although the concept is also suitable for any other metropolitan center in the world.
The technology platform of the Audi urbansphere – the Premium Platform Electric or PPE – was designed exclusively for battery-electric drive systems and therefore takes full advantage of all the benefits of this technology. The key element of the PPE is a battery module between the axles, which – as in the Audi grandsphere – holds around 120 kilowatt hours of energy, good for an electric range of over 750km according to WLTP testing.
