Audi is using this year's Pebble Beach Automotive Week in California to showcase its vision of the future — and it's not autonomous.
The brand late Thursday unwrapped the PB18 e-tron concept car, an electric racer for use on or off the track. It features a movable seating area that can position the driver either on the side or in the center of the vehicle.
Audi called the project "Level Zero," a nod to the five levels of automation, since a driver is needed to fully operate the vehicle at all times. It's based off the standard architecture of a midengine sports car, but is powered by a solid-state battery and three electric motors that can go from 0 to 60 mph in just over 2 seconds.
It has an electric range of just over 310 miles and can be charged without a cord.
