Audi is one of the leading German automakers that is in the process of expanding its range of electric cars instead of giving love to some of its ICE-powered cars that are crying out for a facelift. The problem is that EV batteries are heavy, so something like the h-tron Glaciah concept shown here gives us hope that Audi’s future cars may not run on batteries. The concept’s front end resembles the 2021 Audi Skysphere. The boxy design philosophy, combined with low overhangs, gives the h-tron a futuristic appearance. The headlight clusters are not typical LEDs, but micro LEDs embedded in the hood for a more seamless view. Also, the headlights have variable graphics, similar to the Skysphere. The intake grille is covered, but has a honeycomb mesh design, and there is an illuminated Audi logo on the top.

From the sides, the boxy design continues and we found that the H-Tron has a similar side profile to the Q4 e-tron Sportback. However, the wheels are huge and even the ground clearance seems to be above average. In addition, the front, rear and windows are tinted. The rear shows the slim LED light bar and the Audi logo integrated into the taillights. The lower bumper is designed to lower the drag coefficient.

A more aggressive RS version of the h-tron has also been considered. Unlike the standard h-tron, the RS has more dynamic exterior styling elements. Thanks to a trapezoidal theme, the front bumper has more prominent side vents for better airflow, and even the headlights look sharper. With all these images, the h-tron concept looks like a great urban commercial vehicle that could also run on hydrogen fuel cells.
