Audi reveals its transformable Activesphere Concept
Audi has finally unveiled the last entry in its ‘Sphere’ concept car lineup, the Activesphere. It is a coupe-like crossover SUV designed by the marque’s design branch in Malibu.
One of the main features comes in the shape of a transforming rear end, which forgoes the traditional tailgate for a drop section and a sliding glass section. The whole enables you to turn the SUV into a pickup truck of sorts to haul equipment and sports gear without sacrificing the comfort of the people inside.
There is also a transparent section instead of the radiator grille, 22-inch wheels with sliding aerodynamic trims, as well as glass inserts in the roof and the lower doors.
The cabin seats four and has zero displays in view. Hold your excitement, though: Audi imagines the driver and the passengers all wearing VR headsets all the time. The driver can only see the digital dash with the headset on, and the passengers get their individual infotainment units. Voice commands are used to control everything from navigation to climate.
Powering the design study on wheels is a dual-motor powertrain rated at 442 PS (436 hp / 325 kW) and 720 Nm (531 lb-ft) of torque. The battery holds 100 kilowatt-hours of juice for 600 km (373 miles) of range.
