Audi Maximizes the Driving Range and Acoustic Quality of the New e-tron Using ESI Virtual Prototyping Solutions

When driving in town, vehicles accelerate and decelerate often. The energy used by an electric vehicle to accelerate can then be recovered through regenerative braking. But it’s not the case when driving at constant speed. As a result, from speeds of around 70 km/h (43.5 mph), aerodynamics plays a great role in lowering energy consumption, in fact even greater than vehicle weight reduction.

For Audi’s engineers, this different expectation translated into bigger challenges and the need for innovative strategies to maximize driving range.
