Audi hasn't revealed the actual range or charging times for the AI:ME, but it says that car isn't meant to do high speed highway runs or extreme acceleration. The company says that the AI:ME's production equivalent will be mostly running between 20 kmph and 70 kmph and the range of the car will be kept as such. The overall design is futuristic, with suicide doors at the rear and no B-pillar. The headlamp and tail-lamps are LED units and the cabin inside carries a minimalist theme too. The Audi AI:ME follows the Audi Aicon and the Audi PB18 concepts which were showcased in 2017 and 2018 respectively. Completing its quartet of electric concept vehicles, Audi will showcase a fourth concept car in September 2019 at the Frankfurt Motor Show.
