Our combination for an innovative path to the future.
New power for new paths.
Audi represents Vorsprung durch Technik. That means thinking today about the future of mobility. But it’s not just a question of design or performance – it’s also a question of how to power our cars to get from A to B. And from today to tomorrow.
We are pushing forward innovations in this area: not simply by building efficient engines, but also by developing alternative drive and mobility concepts. By also seeking inspiration from nature for new sources of power that allow us to travel new paths. An innovative contribution to this goal is made by our Audi g-tron models – in combination with Audi e-gas. One example is the Audi A5 Sportback g-trona5tron2: 80% less CO2/km with Audi e-gas technology purely in gas mode (CNG) on a well-to-wheel assessment (a calculation of emissions that includes both the production of fuel and the running of a vehicle) compared with the Audi A5 Sportback 2.0 TFSIegas5 with 140 kW. As a g-tron customer, you can refuel as usual at any CNG filling station. AUDI AG ensures that the total amount of gas consumed by the vehicle, calculated on the basis of legal standards for measuring fuel consumption and emissions as per NEDC/WLTP and statistical data on the annual mileage of Audi g-tron models that were ordered during the period 7 March 2017 to 31 May 2018 is replaced by Audi e-gas – for a period of three years after first registration as a new vehicle (the amount of CO2 saved is also calculated on this basis and may be lower in actual practice when running the vehicle). The Audi e-gas is fed into the European natural gas network, replacing fossil natural gas.
Another step towards our vision of premium carbon-neutral mobility.
A comprehensive approach.
With the Audi g-tron models and Audi e-gas as fuel from our own production sites and from partner facilities, the approach we are taking for our drive solutions isn’t just a matter of efficient engines, but also of the ecology of the entire energy system. A matter of enabling mobility that’s innovative before the vehicle has even driven a single metre. That’s the idea behind “Vorsprung starts before you drive”. And behind the combination of Audi g-tron and Audi e-gas. Find out more about our holistic drive concept here.
