In snow, ice and frosty minus figures in Swedish Lapland, prototypes of the first purely electric series model from Audi, accompanied by the relevant developers, demonstrate that the vehicle can deliver a reliable and inspiring performance even under extreme conditions.
Testing under extreme conditions
More than 20 prototypes of the first purely electric series model from Audi have found their way to Lapland this winter. It is the third and final winter season. An exciting journey for the developers who, against a natural backdrop, test the various requirements in extreme cold on the tracks of the vast terrain one last time before the vehicle’s market launch. The development of the hardware has been completed. Now it’s all about the finer details. The settings in the software. Despite this – or maybe because of it – there is a mixture of euphoria and tension in the air. The demands on the quality of the vehicle are high. In a compact window of time, every day is used efficiently.
During this phase, the isolation of being in the middle of nowhere in Sweden brings with it a number of advantages: the technology of a modern vehicle is now highly complex, and all components must work together in unison. In order to achieve this goal, exchange and cooperation between the relevant departments is important. Lapland offers the optimal conditions for an efficient cooperation – starting with the test drive and ending with analysis of successive drives as a countercheck.
Dynamism and sporty performance
