The new Audi h-tron quattro SUV Concept has debuted at NAIAS 2016 with an all hydrogen fuel cell power train that promises around 200kW of power.
Audi is looking to overcome the challenge of range limitation that alternative fuel cars face. Refueling takes about four minutes, which is a lot quicker than charging a battery for an electric car and then it’s good to go for up to 600km.
The Audi h-tron quattro concept also shows off the technologies for piloted driving and parking that will go into production with the next generation of the Audi A8 full-size sedan in 2017. The central driver assistance controller (zFAS) computes a model of the car’s surroundings in real time and makes this information available to the assistance systems and the piloted driving and parking systems. The parking system can take over driving tasks during parking or in stop-and-go traffic on freeways at speeds of up to 60 km/h.
