This is how Carlos Sainz’s car will be in the Dakar 2022

The German brand Audi presented this Friday the Audi RS Q e-tron with which they will compete in the Dakar rally 2022 the Spanish Carlos Sainz, three times champion, the Frenchman Stéphane Peterhansel, with fourteen titles to his credit, and the Swedish Mattias Ekstrom.

At the digital launch event, the German manufacturer unveiled the prototype combining for the first time an electric drive train with a high-voltage battery and a high-efficiency power converter.

The battery of this vehicle, built in less than 12 months, will be accompanied by a four cylinder combustion engine which will act as a generator to avoid having to plug the car in the desert.

This project, developed in record time, has already been tested in Germany and will travel next week for its tests in Spanish territory.
