Based on its dimensions, the Audi A6 Avant e-tron concept clearly represents the upscale segments – 4.96 meters (16.3 feet) in length, 1.96 meters (6.4 feet) in width, and 1.44 meters (4.7 feet) in height, the same as the current models in the Audi A6/A7 series. With its dynamic proportions and elegant lines, including the Avant back end typical of the brand, it’s obvious at first glance that this vehicle was conceived in a wind tunnel. Aerodynamics has always played a key role in Audi’s long history of success in the luxury class. The cW value of the Audi 100 / C3 – the aerodynamics world champion of all classes in its day – is legendary: with its cW value of 0.30, Audi was already far outperforming its competitors as early as 1982, and continued to do so for many years thereafter. Now the electrically powered family of the Audi A6 e-tron concept is writing a new chapter in this success story, proving once again that the brand always combines form and function in perfect symbiosis. The Sportback’s cW value of just 0.22 is unprecedented in the electrified C-segment. With its expansive roofline, the Avant’s cW value is just 0.02 units above that. In layman’s terms, this means the car exhibits minimal aerodynamic drag – which initially translates into lower energy consumption and therefore extended range. At the same time, the fine-tuning in the wind tunnel has once again resulted in an organic design with exceptional elegance and harmony down to the last detail. Large 22-inch wheels and short overhangs, the flat cabin, and a dynamic roof arch give the Avant proportions that are distinctly reminiscent of a sports car.
The new Hyundai Kona Elektro - New design highlights advanced electric drive
The redesigned Hyundai Kona Elektro is characterized by the redesigned front section with a closed grille and the integrated charger. The new LED daytime running lights and the also new LED headlights with MFR technology (Multifaceted Reflector) emphasize the modern look. Vertical air inlets in front of the wheel arch linings improve aerodynamics and reduce turbulence in the front wheel arch area. Horizontal, satin-finished accent strips visually enhance another functional air inlet in the lower bumper. Hyundai offers 16 exterior colors for the revised Kona Elektro, including eight new ones. Depending on the equipment line and the desired exterior color, the customer can choose between the color-contrasting roof finishes in Phantom Black or Chalk White
