New Audi electric high-performance sports car with electric drive
 Design and technical concept Audi electric car
 As an Audi electric monoposto on the racetrack
For the first time, Audi is presenting a design and technical concept car at Pebble Beach Automotive Week in Monterey, California. The all- electric Audi PB18 e-tron presents a radical vision for the high-performance sports car of tomorrow. Broad and flat, visibly inspired by the wind tunnel and the race track, new Audi electric car very presence signals that it is destined to push boundaries. Its concept and exciting lines were created in the new Audi design studio in Malibu, California – where the brand’s design is consistently being updated for the future. The technical concept of the new Audi electric car PB18 e-tron has benefited from Audi's many years of winning the Le Mans racing series. The experts at Audi Sport GmbH, the high-performance subsidiary of Audi, were responsible for implementation. The abbreviated new Audi electric car name “PB18 e-tron” refers both to the Pebble Beach venue for the premiere and to the technological DNA it shares with the successful Audi LMP1 racing car Audi R18 e-tron.
Consistently focused concepts for use
At first sight, the new Audi PB18 e-tron shows its kinship with another spectacular concept car from the brand – the new Audi Aicon electric car from 2017. This holds true not only for characteristic design elements like the side windows that angle inwards and the extremely extended wheel arches. The two concept Audi electric cars from 2017 and 2018 also share their electric drive with solid-state battery as energy storage.
But new Audi electric car respective, consistently focused concepts for use make them polar opposites. While the new Audi electric car Aicon was designed as a fully automated, long-distance luxury vehicle – a business jet for the road – the creators of the new Audi PB18 e-tron designed it as a radical driving machine for the racetrack and road. Dynamics and emotion top its list of specifications. Parameters like propulsive power, lateral acceleration and perfect ergonomics determine each detail of the new Audi electric car. And driver-orientation is in a completely new dimension.
The internal working title at Audi for the new Audi electric show car project was “Level Zero” – as an explicit way to differentiate it from the Levels 3, 4 and 5 of autonomous driving currently in focus at Audi. In the Audi PB18 e-tron, the driver is the one steering and stepping on the gas or brake pedal. There are therefore no complex systems for piloted driving on board and no comfort features to add weight. In their place are a driver’s seat and cockpit that are integrated into an inner monocoque shell that can be slid laterally. When driven solo, the new Audi electric monocoque can be positioned in the center of the interior as in a monoposto – the perfect location for the racetrack. This is made possible not least by the by-wire design of the steering and pedals; a mechanical connection of the control elements is not needed.
Gael Buzyn is Head of the Audi Design Loft in Malibu – where the Audi PB18 e-tron was born. He describes the most important item in the specifications: “We want to offer the driver an experience that is otherwise available only in a racing car like the Audi R18. That’s why we developed the interior around the ideal driver’s position in the center. Nevertheless, our aim was to also give the Audi PB18 e-tron a high degree of everyday usability, not just for the driver, but also for a potential passenger.”
The new Audi laser high-beam headlight with its enormous range is especially emblematic of the transfer of know-how from motorsport: This technology made its debut in the Audi Le Mans R18 racing car, where the maximum light output at speeds above 300 km/h offered a crucial safety advantage at night as well.
The Audi designers have taken a new tack for air flow through the front hood. The hood dips deeply and acts as a lateral bridge running across the nose, connecting the two emphatically accentuated fenders and also doubling as an air deflector. A design that is thoroughly familiar from racing prototypes.
