Audi is preparing to launch a new “Sphere” concept, following the introduction of the Sky Sphere and Grand Sphere. So far, both Sphere concepts have been incredibly impressive showing off the future concepts of certainty types of vehicles, rather than specifics. However, they do offer visions of the future and the latest is going to be the Audi Urban Sphere concept, set to debut April 19.
Details are still scarce, but a teaser photo reveals some sort of autonomous hatchback-shaped pod with an emphasis on relaxed interior design. You can see stylishly sculpted seats but no steering wheel, a hatchback shape, and some sleek looking interior ambient lighting.
Short overhangs and a small cargo area in back are also obvious in the teaser image and considering it’s called the “Urban Sphere” we fully expect it to be some sort of autonomous commuter pod. In video, Audi described the Urbansphere as a “private space in an urban environment.” It outlined the model as being “digital,” “social,” “involving,” and “perfectly centered around you.”
When it debuts, it will be the third and last Sphere concept from Audi, showing off the future of what the brand wants to be and some of the concepts Audi wants to implement in many of its cars in the coming years.
