The trio includes a coupe, a sedan, and an SUV.
Audi has revealed some stunning concepts and production cars recently. Examples of these include the A6 e-tron Concept and the sexy e-tron GT. But the German marque has something even more dramatic on the way, or should we say, three somethings.
In a video on LinkedIn, Head of Design, Marc Lichte, and Senior Vice President of Audi Brand, Henrik Wenders, teased a trio of exciting Audi concept cars. They are known as the Sky Sphere, Grand Sphere, and Urban Sphere, and all will be revealed sometime over the next year.
Wenders says that the three concepts will "reinvent mobility as we know it today". Lichte said that the cars will "recognize" you and your preferences, possibly hinting at advanced face recognition technology that will adapt the car to different driver profiles.
The first concept, the Sky Sphere, is described as a driver's car that is also autonomous. This one's profile showcases a long, sleek coupe with a stretched hood and very shallow glasshouse. The next model is the Grand Sphere, which is said to offer a "high-class experience for all the senses." This model also has a coupe-like roofline but looks like it has a larger cabin and four doors instead of two.
The third and final concept is called the Urban Sphere. Based on the teaser, it looks like a large SUV, possibly something to take over from the Q7. This one is described as being "a private space in an urban environment" and "perfectly centered around you." The word "social" was used so we assume that this model will offer lots of reconfigurable seating options. Possibly also autonomous, this sounds like a vehicle you could potentially work from or even sleep in. There's no indication of exactly when we'll see these new vehicles but Audi seems very excited about them. As Audi phases out combustion engines, its next chapter seems to be about not just zero-emissions driving but also extraordinary design.
