The brand claim “Vorsprung durch Technik” encapsulates the cutting-edge technology that is at the very heart of the Audi brand. Not just in the domain of sportiness, but also when it comes to a form of future-proof mobility. Audi consistently applies various efficiency measures within the framework of an all-embracing concept. As the developer of numerous innovations, we have made a lasting impact on automotive engineering.
Audi Space Frame ASF®The space frame body is the perfect basis for outstanding driving dynamics and agile handling coupled with low energy consumption. The Audi Space FrameAudi Space FrameThe Audi Space Frame is a high-strength aluminium frame structure into which all panels are integrated so that they also perform a load-bearing function.Audi Space Frame ASF® consists primarily of enclosed aluminium profiles and large, multifunctional castings. In the case of the Audi TT RS, potential savings afforded by ASF compared with a conventional steel design amount to 80 kg.
FSI® engineWith FSIFSIGetting more out of every drop of petrol.FSI ® technology, fuel is injected directly into the combustion chamber. This achieves more effective cylinder filling and compression ratios than on engines with conventional injection. The result is lower fuel consumption yet equally good performance.
Energy recoveryThe energy recovery system converts kinetic energy into electrical energy during phases when the car is coasting or braking. When the car accelerates again, the battery directs the temporarily stored energy back into the vehicle, to relieve the load on the alternator and thereby save fuel.
LED technologyThe LEDs used in the side turn indicators and rear lights are made to last the lifetime of the vehicle. Not only that, but the saving in power consumption that they offer is as much as half compared with conventional bulbs.
