Audi Said Planning H-Tron Reveal

Audi purportedly will show a hydrogen fuel cell concept car called the H-Tron Quattro.

Published: 22-Dec-2015

The German performance car division of the Volkswagen Group rolled out its first hydrogen fuel cell concept car at the 2014 Frankfurt Auto Show. Dubbed the A7 h-tron Quattro, it represented the company's hedge on the future of electric-drive propulsion systems: a sort of 'just in case' alternative to battery technology.

Now the German publication, Autobild, is reporting that Audi will bring the next iteration of its FCEV efforts to Detroit next month of the North American International Auto Show. This time they will be incorporating their fuel cell technology into a sporty SUV concept called the Q6 h-Tron Quattro. Specifics on its performance capabilities are not publicly known at this time, but we do know that the battery version is equipped with a whopping 95kWh lithium battery that can be fast-charged in 50-minutes from a 150kW DC charger. Range is reported to be more than 500 km (310 mi). Top speed is 201 km/h (130 mph) and 0-100 km/h (62 mph) is a Tesla Model S-class of 4.3 seconds.
