Auto Union Type C e-tron

Audi has revealed photos and details with their Auto Union Type C e-tron, which is a small scale electric drive study which is going to be showcased at the 62nd International Toy Fair in Nuremberg in February.

Powered by a 1.5 HP electric-motor which extracts power from a lithium-ion battery, the Auto Union Type C e-tron is able to produce 40 Nm of torque (29.5 lb-ft) continuously, and brief peaks of 60 Nm (44.25 lb-ft). These figures enable this prototype toy to reach speeds of up to 30 Km/h (18.6 mph), while its driving range is close to 25 Km (15.53 miles).

The Auto Union Type C e-tron can recharge in approximately two hours at a standard 230 V household socket, and even though its designed for kids, this aluminum and carbon-look material made toy is also able to fit adults of up to 1.80 meters (5'11") in height.



The Auto Union Type C e-tron price was not specified.

Audi press release :

A small-scale e-tron study: Audi at the International Toy Fair in Nuremberg

    * Prototype with electric drive travels at up to 30 km/h (18.64 mph)

    * Audi's second appearance in Nuremberg

    * From racing bodysuit to exclusive soccer table from Audi design

AUDI AG will be showing a selection of its products again at the 62nd International Toy Fair in Nuremberg. Last year Audi became the first car manufacturer ever to present a selection of model

cars and new products from the Audi children's world to visitors on its own stand in Nuremberg. The highlight in 2011 will be the "Auto Union Type C e-tron study" with electric drive. The International Toy Fair will take place from February 3 to 8.

Audi will be continuing the subject of electric mobility in a fun way at the Nuremberg fair: The brand with the four rings is presenting a unique specimen, which is as innovative as it is exclusive, on its 75 square meter (807.29 square feet) stand - the Auto Union Type C e-tron study. This is based on the limited-edition pedal car model which is sold through quattro GmbH, a subsidiary of AUDI AG. The body of the hand-finished unique specimen is made of aluminum and carbon-look material and is suitable for children and adults of up to 1.80 meters (5'11") in height. The 1:2 scale study is 2.32 meters (7.61 feet) long and 97 centimeters (38.19 inches) wide.

The electric motor drives the rear wheels, is charged by a lithium-ion battery and, with an output of 1.5 hp, reaches a torque of 40 Nm (29.50 lb-ft) - and briefly as much as 60 Nm (44.25 lb-ft). This enables the car to reach a top speed of 30 km/h (18.64 mph). The study is also equipped with a reverse gear.

Depending on how it is driven, the little Audi e-tron has a range of around 25 kilometers (15.53 miles). It can then be charged at a standard 230 volt household socket. Depending on the battery charge status, this takes about two hours.

The exclusive soccer table from Audi design will also be making an appearance in Nuremberg. Alongside its emotive styling, this toy is also noted for its Vorsprung durch Technik. Its materials, finish and technical workmanship satisfy the highest standards. Aluminum and high-strength plastic are added to the wooden core by hand. The table, incidentally, is absolutely suitable for professional tournament use. Its combination of functionality and design is unique in table soccer. Only 20 tables will be built initially, with each small-series soccer table costing €12,900.

quattro GmbH is showing prototypes of a rather different kind in the area of baby and children's products: The racing bodysuit, the power/brake socks, the pit stop baby bottle and the mini sound absorber kit (pacifier) were all inspired by the world of motorsport. Audi is also showing a study of the successor model to the current "Audi Junior quattro" ride-on toy car in Nuremberg.

Audi will of course also be presenting its high-quality range of classic car-related toys: remote-controlled models, plush cars and the Audi motorsport bear. The Wörthersee models of the Audi A1 to a scale of 1:87, among others, will be displayed in the model car paternoster.

Industry professionals, journalists, commercial resellers and large-volume buyers can view the world of toys offered by Audi by visiting the exhibit stand. Through its presence at the fair in Nuremberg, Audi is looking to draw attention to the wide range of toys offered in its portfolio. The International Toy Fair in Nuremberg is one of the world's leading professional exhibitions for toys and leisure products. About 2,600 exhibitors will display their wares from February 3 to 8.
