Audi e-bike: A bicycle that runs at 80 kmph
Audi unveiled an extremely
emotion-inspiring sports machine, the Audi e-bike Wörthersee at
Wörthersee in Carinthia, Austria. The prototype cycle combines an
electric drive and muscle power. Head of Design Wolfgang Egger comments:
“As a high-performance e-bike for sports and trick cycling, it features
the Audi core competences of design, ultra, e-tron and connect.” The
Audi e-bike Wörthersee puts in its first major appearance at this year’s
Wörthersee Tour, the 31st meet for Audi, VW, Seat and Skoda fans; trial
biker Julien Dupont and downhill specialist Petra Bernhard will
demonstrate their stunts and streetbike skills.
The uncompromising dynamism of
the bike prototype is fully visible at first sight. “When developing the
Audi e-bike Wörthersee we drew on motor racing design principles for
inspiration,” explains Hendrik Schaefers, one of the designers at
Concept Design Studio Munich. “The e-bike appears incredibly precise,
highly emotional and strictly functional. Indeed, the design effort
focused on its function as a sports machine.
