    Audi Electric Activesphere

      Audi activesphere, the future of rugged autocross or just another rugged looking luxury electric auto?

    2023 promises to be an exciting year at the global auto companies are lining up many new EV releases.

    Audi since August 2021 has been introducing concept autos to the sphere family. The activesphere concept will be the fourth model in this sphere family of premium mobility.

    Audi activesphere concept is focused on the active lifestyle person allowing them maximum variability for both on and off pavement. Full details about the activesphere will be given at the reveal at the begining of 2023.

    Audi showed off the sphere family during the Monterey Car Week in California on August 18th to 21st, 2022, showing the first three concepts, Audi Skyphere, Audi grandsphere and Audi urbansphere.

    One consistency that is seen here in the Audi Sphere family is the fast back rear that we have seen on the Cadillac family of EVs.

    All of those concepts are ugly and what is with the flying buttress C-pillar on the Audi and the Cadillacs, looks chunky and heavy.

    As far as the active sphere goes, Audi definitely needs more crossover copes for active lifestyle people, I suggest they do a QC1, QC2, QC3, QC4, QC5, QC6, QC7, QC8, and QC9 so they can have 9 Q-coupe versions of their current Q suv's.  This way they can have 18 SUVs each 3 inches and $3,000 different in price.

    Yet they have style and stand out compared to the Jelly Bean Blah ugly nature of Mercedes EQ series. I have low expectations for the EQE when they show it off in a few months. Another Jelly Bean Ugly SUV

    • https://newparts.com/articles/gm-3-6-v6-problems-and-known-issues/   I thought this was somewhat interesting when reading about the history of the 3.6
    • So we're all moved into the new server, but part of the process didn't fully work and I need your help to track some things down. The URLs for a number of pictures didn't update to their new locations.  Your job, when you spot one of these, is to use the Report Post/Article/Gallery button so I can fix it.  If we get a lot of these, I'll think up of some prize for the person with the most reports.  It can be missing emojis, missing pictures in threads, or missing pictures in an article.  The fix for most of these is super simple, but I need to crowdsource finding them. I'm leaving the 2025 Acura MDX  and 2025 Infiniti QX80 articles up as an example to look at. But you can also see it in this screenshot below, where it shows: 2025 Acura MDX Interior infotainment screen and dash Thanks for any help you can offer.  
    • I would look at an Ohio chapter if you want to join.  You're probably too late for seed distribution this year, I got mine right around this time last year.  My membership is expired as it was paid for through my prior employer, but it is something I'd like to join again.
    • Where did you get the seeds? From the chestnut preservation folks, or just a wild chestnut tree?   A woodworking freind of mine knew of a giant one on private land in Michigan about 30 years ago. I wonder what happened to that tree.  I want to try an electric rental.  Contacting them., thank you. 
    • Once they get in the ground they will grow very rapidly until the blight gets them. These two seeds are from different, naturally blight resistant trees. They’ll be planted near each other in the hopes that their seeds will also be blight resistant and if I’m still here in 10 years and the blight hasn’t gotten them, I can share the seeds with others.    This was once the most populous tree in North America, numbering in the hundreds of millions, and the blight wiped it out in a matter of three decades. Now it is rare to see one more than 10 years old in the wild and the ones that are out there are protected and studied.  I believe there’s less than two dozen wild ones in PA now.
