2021 Audi e-tron GT Prototype Sporty And Technological Electric Sportback

2021 Audi e-tron GT Prototype Sporty And Technological Electric Sportback... The Audi e-tron GT is the brand’s first fully electric car to be built in Germany. The Gran Turismo will start rolling off the production line at Audi Böllinger Höfe at the Neckarsulm site at the end of 2020. Large areas of the body of the all-electric Gran Turismo are constructed from ultra-high-strength steel and aluminum. The inline measuring procedure for the bodies is also new. It guarantees even greater accuracy and can respond very quickly to minute deviations. Experienced workers fit the add-on parts and check the finish of the completed body. The expressive design of the Audi e-tron GT places unusually high demands on production quality – the side wall frame, for instance, has a remarkably large draw depth of 35 centimeters (13.8 in) between its highest and lowest point. The expanded assembly line includes 36 instead of the previous 16 cycles. The e-tron GT shares it with the R8 – this integration of two technically completely different cars is unique in the Volkswagen Group. Both models are moved using the same driverless transport vehicles and an electrically powered monorail system. At one station of the line, humans and robots work side by side. A 3D printer is also on hand to produce customized assembly aids at the employees’ request. Once completed, every car is driven for 40 kilometers (24.9 mi) on public roads, which also includes sections on the highway and in urban traffic. As with every electric car, the e-tron GT also features the statutory acoustic vehicle alerting system (AVAS), although embedded within a broader acoustic spectrum. A loudspeaker fitted in the front of the vehicle emits the AVAS sound. For customers ordering the optional sound package, a second, large loudspeaker is added in the rear. In parallel, two loudspeakers in the interior provide an emotional sound experience. Two control units continuously remix the e-tron GT sound based on variables such as speed or accelerator position. The Audi drive select system allows drivers to set whether and how intensively they wish to experience the sound. Whether it’s quality, design or technical characteristics – the Audi e-tron GT is a car packed with all the passion of Audi. This also applies to the sound of the electrically powered Gran Turismo. Engineers Rudolf Halbmeir and Stephan Gsell conceived and designed the progressive electronic sound – on the computer, in the sound laboratory, inside the moving car, and in customer studies.

The Audi drive select system allows drivers to set whether and how intensively they wish to experience the sound. Customers of the Audi e-tron GT can decide for themselves whether and how they wish to hear the e-sound. Standard equipment includes the statutory warning sound at low speeds, known as AVAS (Acoustic Vehicle Alerting System). It is emitted by a loudspeaker positioned in the front area of the car. At high speed – from 20 km/h (12.4 mph) in the EU and from 32 km/h (19.9 mph) in North America – it becomes gradually quieter and is inaudible at 60 km/h (37.3 mph). Even in this standard version, the statutory sound components are embedded within a broader sound palette that exceeds the legal requirements. The optional sound package delivers a far more emotional sound experience. Two control units and amplifiers positioned in the luggage compartment generate the exterior and interior sounds. In this configuration, the front exterior loudspeaker is joined by a counterpart in the rear end along with two loudspeakers in the rear doors for the interior sound. Their comparatively large dimensions allow them to accurately reproduce frequencies down to 65 Hz. In the Audi drive select dynamic handling system, the driver can set how the e-sound is delivered. In efficiency mode, it is restricted to the AVAS warning sound. In the comfort profile, the rear exterior loudspeaker comes into play – delivering full and sophisticated exterior sound and remaining active up to the top speed. In dynamic mode, both exterior loudspeakers become louder, and the interior sound is added. The e-tron GT is the first electrically powered Audi model in which customers can configure the listening experience themselves – from the silence of the electric drive all the way to the fascinating sound backdrop..
