Systematically designed from the inside out, Audi is presenting the Audi urbansphere concept car. Designers and engineers have created the Audi urbansphere primarily for the traffic in bustling cities, like Singapore.
In these areas, where personal space is in particularly short supply, the concept car offers the largest interior space of any Audi model to date. In addition, it intelligently coordinates this with technologies and digital services that appeal to all the senses, and thus offers a new quality of experience.
The development process took place in close collaboration between Audi’s design studios in Beijing and its headquarters in Ingolstadt. For the first time, potential customers in China also took part, contributing their own desires and experiences to the development process (known as “co-creation”).
The result of this process can be seen in the Audi urbansphere concept, above all in the interior. As such, the spacious automobile acts as a lounge on wheels and mobile office – the vehicle serves as a third living space during the hours spent in traffic. To this end, the Audi urbansphere combines the luxury of complete privacy with a comprehensive range of high-tech features on board, even during the daily rush hour.
Level 4 automated driving technology transforms the interior without a steering wheel, pedals, or displays into a mobile interactive space that opens up to the offerings of a comprehensive digital ecosystem.
When will the concept become reality? Not in the near future, we reckon. But if you are keen to utilise an Audi for quick city runs, we might have to contend with renting an Audi (the zippy A1 Sportback available at just over 2 grand per month), which makes plenty of sense.
