Audi has announced that it will debut a new performance e-bike prototype at next week’s Wörthersee Tour car show in the picturesque village of Reifnitz, Austria.

Described as a high-end pedelec for sport, fun and tricks, the Audi e-bike Wörthersee features a futuristic carbon fiber frame that houses an onboard computer and a Li-ion battery pack, and carbon-fiber-reinforced plastic (CFRP) wheels – both designed to keep the weight down.

The prototype offers five travel modes, ranging from pedal-power to electric-only, and inclusive of two “Wheelie” modes where the power is automatically controlled to assist the rider while the front wheel grabs some air.
