Audi conducts city tour of Dakar Rally race car ‘RS Q e-tron’ in 3 European cities

Audi conducted a city tour in major European cities such as Madrid, Paris, and Stockholm where you could see the Audi RS Q e-tron competing in the Dakar Rally. After receiving favorable reviews from a city tour held in Hamburg, Germany a year ago, this time a city tour was held in the capitals of Spain, France, and Sweden, with Carlos Sainz of the Audi factory team participating in the Dakar Rally. Lucas Cruz hit the streets of Madrid, Spain, Stéphane Peterhansel and Edouard Boulanger hit the streets of Paris, France, and Matthias Ekström and Emil Bergkvist hit the streets of Sweden. The innovative RS Q e-tron, which reduces carbon emissions, was introduced in Stockholm.


The Audi Factory team demonstrated the Audi RS Q e-tron, a prototype electric drive system, driving at the most beautiful landmarks in three cities. Various attractions, including the royal palaces of Spain and Sweden, the Eiffel Tower and Sacré-Coeur Basilica in Paris, were included in the driving course, and in some places, a drift demonstration was held where you could feel the output of the Audi RS Q e-tron, reaching 263 kW (358 horsepower). It was presented and attracted the attention of many people. The drivers of the Audi factory team had a great time signing autographs for the audience. Rolf Michl, head of Audi Motorsport, said, “This three-country tour was an event that put a kind of exclamation point on it.” In addition, he said, this tour was “an opportunity to showcase Audi’s innovative technology to many people as it passes through major cities, unlike rally competitions that start on a race circuit or in the Dakar desert where spectators gather. The Audi RS Q e-tron is an opportunity for many people.””It contains an inspirational and popular message.”


Audi is a pioneering brand that has been promoting electrification in the motorsports field since 2012, and the RS Q e-tron proves that even eco-friendly vehicles can achieve success in desert rallies through an electric drive system and energy converter. It was developed to do this. The energy converter consists of an internal combustion engine and a generator, and starting this season, Audi is using sustainable fuel that reduces carbon dioxide emissions by about 60%.

Meanwhile, last year, the Audi Sport team won the overall championship at the Abu Dhabi Desert Challenge. In addition, he has recorded six stage wins in the two Dakar rallies to date, and has ranked in the top three a total of 28 times throughout the race. Audi plans to sequentially release videos and photos of this RS Q e-tron city tour through its official channels. Videos and photos of the Madrid tour will be released on September 20th through the Audi Sport media channel and, and videos of the Paris tour and Stockholm tour will be released on September 27th and October 4th, respectively..
