Audi lunar Quattro is preparing for a mission to the Moon. Since 2015 Audi has been working with a team led by Robert Bohme, founder and CEO of Part-Time Scientists, on developing the rover.
The lunar Quattro rover is featured in the recent sci-fi film “Alien: Covenant”. The film part is just a stepping stone towards it’s actual mission to explore the “eighth continent”. With Audi’s support, the Berlin start-up Part-Time Scientists has the goal to be the first private company to achieve a mission to the Moon.
Audi’s focus of the collaboration is on offering all-wheel drive expertise (quattro technology), expertise in lightweight construction, experience in developing vehicles with electric and plug-in hybrid motors (e-tron), and with design optimization for the development of the rover.
