Audi Activesphere Concept, a chameleon crossover


NEW - The fourth model in its 'Sphere' concept series takes the form of a 4.98m crossover that can transform into a pick-up.

What will remain of this concept?

No one knows, but this is not the first time that a manufacturer has presented a vehicle capable of changing silhouette according to needs.

Here, the Audi Activesphere concept, the fourth in the “Sphere” series after the Skysphere roadster from 2021, the Gransphere sedan and the Urbansphere from 2022, can go from crossover crossover with a coupe to a pickup.

A silhouette acclaimed by Miami surfers, where this style prototype comes from.

Indeed, the lines of the Activesphere are the work of the Audi-based design office in Florida.

This is how, in its smooth and monolithic forms, this recreational vehicle camped on 22-inch wheels can be transformed into a pick-up with the simple press of a button.

It can then transport electric bicycles and water or winter sports equipment.


Based on the VW Group's premium PPE platform, the Activesphere concept is powered by two electric motors, making it a four-wheel-drive vehicle.

Total power comes out at 325 kW (442 hp) and torque at 720 Nm. The electric machines are powered by a 100 kWh battery placed under the floor, between the two axles.

Operating with 800 volt technology, it allows very fast charging, up to 270 kW.

Provided it has efficient infrastructure, the Activesphere concept would be able to recover 300 km of autonomy in 10 minutes, or half of its total autonomy.

The first Audi developed around the PPE platform is scheduled for the end of 2023.
