Wide-ranging character: from comfortable highway tourer to dynamic offroader
In addition to the ESC, the characteristics of the Audi e-tron prototype can also be adapted to various types of terrain using the standard dynamic handling system. Whether relaxed cruising, dynamic cornering or excursions off the beaten track, the driver can choose between seven profiles depending on the driving situation, road conditions or personal requirements. Besides the drive system characteristic and steering boost, Audi drive select also influences the standard adaptive air suspension with controlled dampers. On the highway, the body is lowered by as much as 26 millimeters (1.0 in), which improves stability and the aerodynamics. Offroad it can lift the body by 50 millimeters (2.0 in).
