What is technology?
Audi says that 85 percent of the fine dust particles in the air are caused by friction from car tires, brakes and roads. The smallest particulate matter that flies on the road is only 10 micrometers, which can prove to be extremely harmful to health in the long run.
Audi is working on a technology for its cars that will absorb the fine particles emitted by itself as well as the fine particles emitted by other vehicles. For this, the company is installing air filters in several layers with a suction fan above the radiator in front of the car. A switch will be provided in the cabin to turn this air filter on and off.
The company is making changes in the design of the car to fit it in the car. Audi says that after this change, care is also being taken that the prices do not increase too much. This filter installed in front of the car works like a vacuum cleaner.
Currently, Audi is testing it on the e-tron electric SUV. The company has tested this air filter by driving the car for 50,000 kms. According to the company, this air filter is so capable that it can absorb emissions from two other cars along with it. The company says that this car system is easy to maintain and does not require frequent servicing.
