Audi Grandsphere Concept
Audi debuts the grandsphere concept at the IAA 2021, a new all-electric luxury sedan featuring a new design that ultimately reimagines the interior, the passenger compartment, as the center of the vehicle by prioritizing ultimate comfort in its first-class cabin for owners looking for a luxurious ride.
The grandsphere is equipped with Audi’s next level of automated driving, Level 4, in this mode, the interior turns into a spacious sphere of experience without a steering wheel, pedals or displays. This mode provides the front seats with more open views of the road and access to Audi’s digital infotainment system.
The Audi grandsphere concept illustrates the brand’s claim that it defines the progressive luxury of the future: for Audi, that includes the option of new high-class experiences, enabled by digitalization, as well as a holistic approach to greater sustainability with the goal of carbon neutrality in the future.
In the cabin, control panels are even integrated into the armrests on the doors. That way, the car always offers passengers invisible touch surfaces using an optic indicator to show its position. At the same time, there are VR glasses in the armrests on the left and right doors that can be used in conjunction with infotainment options. In the front is also a compact onboard cooler with two glasses designed for a bottle and soft drinks.
Under the hood, the grandsphere packs powerful performance with it’s electric drive system which reaches acceleration from 0-62 mph in just over 4 seconds. The drive system uses 800 volt charging technology which supports fast charging. In less than 25 minutes, you can charge the from 5 to 80 percent. The drive system provides a top range of 466 miles depending on the power output.
