Audi Displays Type C e-tron at International Toy Fair
Last year Audi became the first automaker to display at the International Toy Fair. But as fun as their cars can be, it wasn't their full-size automobiles that were on display at the Nuremberg expo: it was their range of toys, of course, including a children's pedal car styled after the iconic Auto Union Type C "Silver Arrow" grand prix car, only about half the size.
This year Audi came back with an electric version bearing the same "e-tron" label as its full-size electric concepts. The "Type C e-tron study" packs a 1.5-horsepower electric motor to drive the little car up to 18.64 miles per hour with a range of over 15 miles on a single charge, which takes two hours on a standard 230-volt European socket. Best of all, while it's designed for children, it can accommodate an adult up to 5'11".
Unfortunately it appears to be just a concept at the moment, but with enough enthusiasm Audi could very well put it into production, perfect for scooting around the grounds of a private estate or gated community.
