Audi’s new electric mountain bike is inspired by its e-powered rally car

Audi has unveiled an electrified mountain bike befitting of its rally car roots, drawing from the brand’s e-powered motorsport pedigree.

The two-wheeled vehicle, dubbed the e-bike Wörthersee, is a high-performance alloy frame that houses a sophisticated electric motor. This motor drives the rear wheel, generating up to 60Nm of torque and 40kW of power, allowing for speeds of up to 45km/h. The battery pack is fitted to the downtube of the bike and is capable of providing a range of up to 80km.

The Wörthersee e-bike also features a range of technical components, including a Fox 36 Float E-MTB fork, a SRAM Eagle 1×12 speed drivetrain, Magura MT7 hydraulic disc brakes, and a RockShox Reverb Stealth dropper seatpost. With the integration of these components, riders are provided with a smooth and responsive ride, allowing them to navigate the terrain with confidence.

The bike is finished with an array of striking features, like the Audi Sport chequered flag livery and the Audi rings, which are integrated into the frame and seatpost. The bike also comes with a dedicated Wörthersee-branded LED headlight and taillight, as well as a multifunctional display and integrated electronic lock.

The e-bike Wörthersee is a testimony to Audi’s commitment to innovation, merging the brand’s motorsport-inspired engineering and design with modern, high-performance components. This electric mountain bike is an exciting and powerful offering that promises to be a reliable and thrilling ride for any enthusiast.
