Audi Urbansphere concept

Here is a completely new concept for Audi, called the urbansphere concept. This concept was created above all starting with the passenger compartment. It is a veritable living room, desired by engineers and designers as the perfect machine for traversing major Chinese cities.

And this concept doesn’t do things in half, because the cabin will be the largest of all the Audis produced to date. With Level 4 Autonomous Driving, the front seats can do without a steering wheel, pedals and devices. It is enough to turn the cabin into a real third place of life.

Measuring 5.51 meters in length, 2.01 meters in width and 1.78 meters in height, the concept has a large wheelbase of 3.40 meters. On-board life isn’t the only element thrown in: the urbansphere concept is also capable of taking its passengers home, booking a restaurant, parking itself or even managing its own freight. Essentially, it replaces the driver that would have been assigned to all of these functions.

Four places are offered despite the massive size: it is enough to have a particularly large area. The rear seat backs can be tilted up to 60 degrees, while the leg rests are extended at the same time. A necessary evil to attend a conference or a movie shown on a giant screen that could occupy the show booth!

From the outside, the Audi urbansphere concept looks like a very large pickup truck. At the front, its single-frame grille highlights the “Digital Light Signature of Nearby Lights”. As shown in the image below.

On a technical level, this concept uses the Premium Platform Electric’s PPE platform. The battery unit placed between the two axes is generous, at no less than 120 kW. It is enough to power the two electric motors, which develop a power of 295 kW and a torque of 690 Nm. A level of force is clearly useless to move in big cities with heavy traffic…

However, it is always interesting to see how manufacturers envision the future, even with cars with exotic concepts.
