Audi has released live images and video of its new urban concept and concept spyder, from Frankfurt. The concept’s roof can be slid right back allowing the driver and passenger to get to their seat. The spyder, on the other hand, simply has a flat window strip wrapping around the cockpit.

Power for the baby concept comes in the form of two e-tron motors fed by a single lithium-ion battery. Complete recharging takes around 20 minutes via a 400 volt three-phase current, and approximately one hour from a 230 volt household current. Then there’s Audi Wireless Charging (AWC), which needs the driver to simply park over a specific parking spot – fitted with an integrated a coil and an inverter (AC/AC converter). This transmits a magnetic field across the gap which induces an alternating current to the car’s secondary coil, ultimately feeding the vehicle’s lithium-ion battery.

The lightweight (480 kg/1,058.22 lb) concept’s body is constructed from carbon fibre-reinforced polymer, while the occupant cell is a mix of CFRP and aluminum. The battery, which stores 7.1 kWh, drives the rear wheels via a pair of e-tron electric motors. Producing 15 kW (20 hp) in total, the urban concept is capable of hitting 100 km/h (62.14 mph) in 16.9 seconds. Top speed is limited to 100 km/h (62.14 mph). Range is 73 km (45.36 miles).
