Future mobility at the Audi museum mobile
Ingolstadt – The Audi museum mobile in Ingolstadt is offering a preview of future mobility. The special exhibition “Audi future lab: mobility” which runs from December 6, 2012 to March 17, 2013 showcases the brand’s initiatives in the areas of future engines, future energies and urban future. The exhibits show the drive systems and fuels of the future as well as mobility solutions for the world’s metropolises.
The Audi future engines exhibit area showcases drive technologies under development at Audi. Along with TDI and TFSI engines, which will remain the supporting pillars of the brand in the medium term, this thematic area focuses on electrification of the powertrain within the Audi e-tron concept. This is a field in which the company is primarily concentrating on plug-in hybrid technology.
Audi places a strong focus on developing new sources of energy for sustainable future mobility. These fuels are the subject of the Audi future energies exhibit area. Alongside specialist partners, the brand is building up fuel generating capability in the Audi e-gas project. At the same time, it is involved in projects to bring the new bio fuels, Audi e-ethanol and Audi e-diesel, both of which are CO2 neutral, to market readiness.
The Audi urban future exhibit area illustrates how intensively the company is observing and evaluating societal megatrends. This theme relates to Audi Design as well as to the Audi Urban Future Initiative – a global network of experts that is generating new ideas for mobility in the world’s large metropolitan areas.
The Audi museum mobile explores all three themes in the form of attractive exhibits. They include three futuristic vehicles: the Audi R8 e-tron technology platform, the Audi R18 e-tron quattro – a Le Mans race car – and the new Audi A3 Sportback TCNG which runs on Audi e-gas. The Audi urban concept Spyder and Audi e-Bike Wörthersee studies offer glimpses of the youthful, smart mobility of tomorrow.
