Audi Electric Supercar
This course challenges students to design an efficient New Propulsion performance vehicle for an identified brand.
Building on the methodologies from Transportation Design Foundations, students will be challenged to define a new aesthetic based on optimizing the efficiency of the vehicle’s performance.
To further their knowledge, students will begin to research, understand and incorporate into their designs emerging technologies, processes, and materials that support an efficient performance execution narrative.
From Kyle: The most challenging part of designing a supercar was giving it a purpose or making it practical with such an open project brief. Especially when a supercar is probably one of the most least practical things someone could buy. The motive behind the car stemmed from Seattle's poor air quality, giving a customer a sustainable supercar while keeping the thrill of the drive. As well as sticking closely to Audi's design language and brand identity.
