Audi shares details about ‘boost mode’ in upcoming e-tron quattro electric SUV
According to the latest piece of information shared by German automaker Audi about its e-tron quattro electric SUV, the forthcoming vehicle will have a ‘boost mode’ which will give it the ability to unleash its full power for short outbursts.
The disclosure about the ‘boost mode’ is the latest detail shared by Audi for its e-tron quattro electric SUV. Over the past few weeks, Audi has been sporadically sharing some new information related to the e-tron quattro, which will be the automaker’s first next-generation all-electric vehicle.
In sharing the details about the ‘boost mode’ in the e-tron quattro electric SUV, Audi has revealed that it has developed the mode specifically for enabling the two asynchronous electric motors of the vehicle to deliver 300 kW for short, 8-second outbursts.
Audi has already disclosed that the two motors of the e-tron quattro help the vehicle to accelerate from zero to 200 km/h (124.3 mph) electronically limited top speed “several times consecutively” without any output loss. The automaker now says that, in the ‘boost mode,’ the e-tron prototype takes “less than six seconds” to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62.1 mph).
Revealing that the e-tron quattro’s ‘boost mode’ is available for 8 seconds, Audi said that the mode can be activated by the vehicle’s drivers “by shifting from drive range D to S and fully depressing the right-hand pedal.”
