Audi New e-bike Worthersee Concept
At the Worthersee tour in austria, Audi will present its new high-performance e-bike for sports and trick cycling.
This prototype lithium-ion bike has been constructed from a lightweight 3.53-pound carbon fiber-reinforced polymer (CFRP), has been crafted with “sport, fun, and tricks” in mind and comes with a variety of powered and non-powered riding modes. It can be powered in three ways: “Pure” mode manual pedaling, “Pedelec” mode pedaling supported by the electric motor with up to 80 km/h (50 mph) and provides a range of 50 to 70 kilometers (31 to 44 miles), or “eGrip” mode which runs solely on the electric motor with a top speed of 50 km/h (31 mph).
The lithium-ion battery requires 2.5 hours to fully charge.
Featuring the Audi core competences of design, ultra, e-tron and connect, its carbon fiber- reinforced polymer frame features a low center of gravity and a compact overall volume. The electric motor which is located at the lowest point on the frame generates a maximum output of 2.3 kW and 250 Nm of torque.
Other features on The Audi e-bike Worthersee include a touchscreen computer interfaces with smartphone via WLAN to enable a whole host of advanced features, Homogeneous LED light strips, 26-inch wheels with an innovative “Audi ultra blade” design and broad flat spokes for an optimized transmission of pedal power, and so on.
