Audi’s new car marks an automotive revolution. Part pickup, part sedan and part sports coupe, this concept car can be transformed into an infinite number of vehicles for a multitude of uses.

 

Between a coupe, an SUV, a pick-up and a sedan, this new concept car of the brand with the four rings is like a kind of modern day Transformers. Unfortunately, it can’t turn into a robot but it can do a lot of other things. Imagined by Audi, it was not designed in Ingolstadt, Germany, but in the Californian office of the manufacturer, in Malibu.

 

This is the fourth concept that the German brand has developed on American soil. The collection began in 2021 with the Skysphere model, then with the Grandsphere sedan, followed by the Urbansphere minivan. Active sphere, which takes the same suffix as its predecessors, becomes the first SUV in the range.

A unique design

 

The design of this new car? Audi owes it to two Frenchmen, Gaël Buzyn and Charles Lefranc. Two raw talents whose work gave birth to this curious machine, at the crossroads of several types of cars.

 

The activesphere is unique. It is a new type of crossover that intelligently combines the elegance of an Audi Sportback, the functionality of an SUV and true off-road capabilities,” says the brand in a statement.

 

With its smooth, edge-free lines and diverse functionalities, this sporty coupe-berlin can be used as a city car for city walks and, at the same time, can be transformed into a 4×4 to face the wind and the tide. Its dimensions are almost 5 meters long, 2.7 meters wide and more than 1.5 meters high.

 

It has 440 horses powered by a 100 kwh battery and four wheel drive. There is also a variable ground clearance of 40 mm on demand, while the rocker panels transform according to the functionality that the user wants to give them.

 

And for even more innovation, the rear of the vehicle changes in a few seconds from a perfectly designed stern to a pickup that can accommodate suitcases, bicycles or any other large objects: “It’s a car entirely dedicated to the outdoors” says French designer Charles Lefranc.

 

An interior like you’ve never seen before

 

 

To access the interior of the car, another originality, you just have to open one of the doors with antagonistic opening (reverse opening). When the driver sits down, there is no steering wheel in front of him, at least not in autonomous driving mode. Another new technology and not the least, if the driver wants to see the road, know the speeds or other elements, he only has to equip himself with 3D glasses, which will be like Jarvis for Iron Man, his daily assistance.

 

 

And because Audi thinks of everything, the passengers can also have the right to these glasses, in particular to adjust the air conditioning or watch a movie. Didn’t we forget to mention that this new concept can also be transformed into a cinema?

 

If some people are not fans of new technologies and prefer to share a convivial moment, it is possible to remove them and find a traditional interior with a steering wheel, by pressing only a virtual button.

 

 

What’s the best thing about this car? Even if there is more than one, it is also the abundance of light. To take full advantage of it and for more safety, the autonomous mode is recommended. A true open-air car, the roof is panoramic, the bottom of the doors are glazed and even more exceptional, the front grille is also transparent.

 

For the moment, the German brand has only announced the design and the conception of this new vehicle. If all goes well, the production of the latter should start before 2027.
