During the 2016 Beijing Motor Show, Audi finally launched its latest Connected Mobility Concept based on the Q3, which comes with smartphone integration. But guess what, it also gets an electric longboard in the rear bumper. The longboard primarily serves as an alternative mode of transportation, making mobility more creative and convenient.
The Q3 Connected Mobility Concept basically looks like the Q3 crossover— both exterior and interior. No modifications have been employed aside from the enhanced connectivity and mobility. Through the Audi MMI connect app, the Q3-compact-crossover-inspired concept can be synced to a smartphone calendar, enabling the vehicle to know where the driver is going. In addition, it can also be linked to the vehicle’s infotainment system. Moreover, the concept can determine the fastest routes. When the fastest route no longer needs the vehicle, the driver can easily hop on the longboard and scoot the rest of the way after the app has found a perfect parking spot for the Audi.
The 3.44-feet electric longboard can run up to 7.40 miles and accelerate up to 18 mph on a single charge-up. Moreover, the scooter has a spot for the smartphone on the handlebars to make it more convenient for the user to access the Audi MMI connect app. When not in use, the electric long board can be placed back at its rear bumper storage tray, where it automatically recharges.Read the entire article 2016 Audi Q3 Connected Mobility Concept Comes with Electric Longboard
