Audi is developing its electric RS Q e-tron prototype, which it plans to use to compete in the 2022 Dakar Rally. Following tests in Germany and Spain, the Audi Sport crew relocated to Morocco, where the prototype saw the desert and sand dunes for the first time. In this scenario, all three official teams took part and will confront the most challenging rally raid in the globe.
According to the automaker, they encountered severe climatic conditions in Morocco, with temperatures reaching well over 40 degrees. Furthermore, the crew had to cope with sandstorms that impeded testing as well as minor issues caused by the searing heat.
