The new module – whose electric motor and power electronics are liquid-cooled – weighs less than 80 kilograms. It also features a new transmission-integrated electric parking lock function. Through the intelligent combination and integration of the system’s individual components, it was also possible to remove numerous connectors and cables, cutting costs even further.
The updated Audi A5 models (combined fuel consumption in l/100 km: 5.4–3.7 (43.6–63.6 US mpg); combined CO2emissions in g/km: 143–98 (230.1–157.7 g/mi)) are available in Europe with an output range from 120 kW (163 hp). This includes the S models with their powerful V6 engines. The engines satisfy the limits of the Euro 6d-temp emissions standard.
The technical highlights include a range of 405 kilometres (provisional figures) and the rapid charging of the high-voltage battery from 10 to 80 per cent in less than 45 minutes. Customers can also choose between two different wheel bases.
With target figures of 2,000 PS of power and 1,700 Nm of torque, the Lotus Evija is the world’s most powerful production road car. Key to that exceptional power output is the 2,000 kW lithium-ion battery, supplied with its management system by Williams Advanced Engineering.
The battery pack is mid-mounted immediately behind the two seats and supplies energy directly to four powerful e-motors. This highly efficient system is the lightest, most energy dense, electric power package ever fitted to a road car. With a target weight of just 1,680 kg, it will be the lightest pure electric hypercar ever to go into series production.
The all-new e-2008 SUV is powered by a 100kW (136bhp) electric motor and 50kWh battery. Under WLTP testing, the 100% electric zero-emission SUV will achieve 193 miles of range.
The 50kWh battery is positioned under the floor of the all-new e-2008 SUV, so there’s no compromise to boot or interior space whichever powertrain is selected.
