Audi has shown off a new connected mobility concept based on their Audi Q3 in China, the car is designed for megacities with high traffic.
The Audi Q3 Connected Mobility Concept comes with an electric long board which is designed to be used as another mode of transport.
An electrically powered multifunctional longboard, measuring 1.05 meters in length, is integrated into the rear bumper of the car for convenient storage and removal. To ensure permanent usability, the device is charged automatically while loaded in the car. The board’s premium design includes superior materials such as carbon fiber and aluminum.
The car’s infotainment system is linked to the smartphone calendar of the user. Based on the destination and planned arrival time, the system will calculate the fastest mobility mix based on real-time traffic data. In case the longboard option is faster, the system will recommend a parking space nearby so that the driver may continue the commute to the destination with the electric board. The navigation information synchronizes with the Audi MMI connect App on the user’s smartphone that continues to guide the route.
The multi-functional longboard has a battery range of more than 12 kilometers and reaches a maximum speed of 30 km/h. The board can be utilized in three riding modes: In “scooter mode”, the phone is conveniently clipped to the unfolded handlebar to display directions. The speed is adjusted via remote control attached to the right handlebar grip. A backpack can be conveniently clipped onto the steering rack. With the handlebar folded down in “sport mode”, the rider controls the speed via remote control in his hand. In a third mode, the board serves as a transport device for luggage or shopping bags: Connected wirelessly to a smartphone or smart-watch, the board automatically follows its owner.
