Audi RS e-tron GT - electric quattro and recuperation

quattro reloaded: the electric all-wheel driveThe e-tron GT quattro and the RS e-tron GT generally drive with electric all-wheel drive, only the "efficiency" mode of the Audi drive select driving dynamics system prioritizes front-wheel drive. In the event of slippery road surfaces, high power requirements or fast cornering, the electric motor in the rear is also engaged here for propulsion - and about five times faster than with a mechanical quattro powertrain. The electric all-wheel drive controls the distribution of drive torque between the axles permanently and fully variably in cycles of a few thousandths of a second. The quattro principle of four driven wheels, which Audi introduced to the market more than 40 years ago, is presented here in a new, fascinating level of technology. When the driver releases the right pedal, the drive shifts into sailing mode - the Gran Turismo glides elegantly and efficiently. In the "dynamic" mode of Audi drive select, on the other hand, the car recuperates under thrust.
