“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.

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.
