The Audi AI:TRAIL quattro is, as stated above, a fully electric and has very good off-road capabilities. The four-seater is surrounded by glass and has no real dashboard to increase the field of view when off-roading.

“With the AI:TRAIL, we are showing an off-road concept with an emissions-free electric drive for an innovative driving experience away from paved roads,” said Marc Lichte, Audi’s Head of Design. “Consistent with this, we designed a monolithic basic vehicle body with maximum glazing to create an intense connection to the surroundings. A concept for sustainable mobility on demand.”

Audi didn’t disclosed the battery size of the AI:TRAIL but the range is 400 to 500 kilometers on roads or mild off-road terrains. In rougher terrain, though, the range drops to 250 kilometers.

While the Audi AI:TRAIL is not geared to hit the Autobahn, it still has plenty of power to match its off-roading capabilities. The concept, equipped with four electric motors, as power output of 320 kW(435 hp) and 1,000 Nm (737.6 lb-ft) of torque. That being said, the has a maximum speed of 130 km/h.
