Audi’s 48-Volt Technology – Using The Full Bandwidth Of Electrification

September 03, 2014 / by / 0 Comment

The new 48-volt technology from Audi has made things even more powerful and efficient. Most cars are seen to use a 12-volt system to supply power to their electrical systems. However, with an increasing number of electric elements being added to new vehicles, it seems 12 volts is not going to be enough. Audi seems to have realized this fast enough and introduces the electrifying 48-volt technology.

The supplemental 48-volt electric system is being tested by the auto giant on the RS 5 TDI and hybrid versions of the A6 TDI.  For the German automaker, this is an important building block in the electric technology and electrification strategy that will raise the power and efficiency of its cars. Their drive principles strategy will make use of the full bandwidth of electrification and the 48 volts electrical system in the vehicle will certainly play a central role. The move will also pave a way for new technologies to make the cars more powerful sporty and efficient.
