Audi H-Tron Quattro: Electrical and fuel cell: Audi will bring SUV without conventional drives from 2017-quattro
Marcel Sommer The Audi H-Tron Quattro Concept is supposed to come 600 kilometers.

The German manufacturers have fallen behind in terms of fuel cells. Audi now wants to catch up and, according to a media report, his study from 2017 "H-tron" Let reality become reality with new drive concepts.

At the Detroit Motor Show in January, Audi showed his concept study H-Tron Quattro, a large SUV with fuel cell. Two other alternative drives are also planned for the car. Like Audi’s chief engineer Stefan Knirsch the British magazine "Top Gear" has betrayed, a first version of the car is said to go into series production in 2017. "This vehicle will not come onto the market with conventional drives", So crunch in an interview with the British.

Plug-in, purely electrical and with hydrogen

There will therefore be three versions of the car:

  • A purely electrical version, as a competitor to the Tesla Model X;
  • As a plug-in hybrid, i.e. with a diesel or petrol engine that is supported by electric motors- this version should probably be the one that goes into series production in 2017 based on existing hybrid technology;
  • as fuel cell SUV, i.e. electrically powered and with a fuel cell that generates its energy with the help of hydrogen.

Toyota and Hyundai were faster

In the interview, the Audi chief engineer also made it clear that the fuel cell version is probably the last of the three SUVs that Audi is launching. Before that, the corresponding infrastructure for hydrogen filling stations must be created. So far there is not even a dozen publicly accessible hydrogen filling stations in Germany. For example, more commitment in this area show California or Japan.Audi has now been left behind by many competitors in terms of technology leadership, especially with electrical drives. Fuel cell technology is available at Audi and throughout the Volkswagen Group and has been tried for years, but there are no series models yet. Instead, Toyota stole the show with the Mirai and especially Hyundai with the first hydrogen SUV IX35 Fuelcell.
