Audi Launches A Morphing State-Of-The-Art All-Electric Self-Driving Concept Car

Audi is currently in the process of shifting to an all-electric lineup, though ahead of this monumental transition, the German carmaker is giving the automotive world a taste of its future EV offerings via the debut of an all-new concept car known as the “skysphere.”

Weighing less than 4,000lbs, the skysphere concept features a cutting-edge powertrain with an 80kWh battery that affords a 310-mile range and a set of motors that generate 623.5hp and 533ft-lbs of torque, allowing for 0-60mph runs in just under four seconds. Aside from its wildly sleek appearance, the two-seater concept’s most noteworthy feature is undoubtedly its dual driving configurations which allow the skysphere to serve as a grand tourer with a 5.19-meter (or 17’) wheelbase, or as a performance-focused roadster with a 4.94-meter (or 14.73’) stance and a ride height that drops by 10mm (or 0.4”). This ability is made possible through the use of components that slide together. While the vehicle is thus far only a concept, the skysphere does reportedly offer a glimpse into the future design language of the firm.
