2013 Audi F12 e Performance Prototype Audi launched its 2013 F12 e performance prototype

Audi, with its headquarters located in Germany, revealed its F12 e performance prototype after three long years of work that went into it. Bosch and several institutes at the RWTH Aachen University joined hands in order to come up with the prototype of the car.

The Prototype is said to be a ‘major advancement for electric mobility’ since the modules can be used in various EV’s. With its three electric motors that can be controlled separately the car is based on the R8 and features a 38+ kWh battery. At high speed both the rare motors are activated to produce an output of 204 HP (150 kW) and 550 Nm (406 lb-ft) of torque while at low speed the front axle motor powers the vehicle all by itself.

In-spite of the completion of the prototype, some of the components like carbon fiber reinforced plastic housing for the rear battery can eventually make it into production.

The team united lateral thinking and creativity. Christian Allmann says “From the very beginning, our initiative was the largest interdisciplinary research project in Germany for electric cars.”

The project with a budget of €36 million came out in flying colors at the end of these three tiring years of work.
