The Audi e-tron hydrofoil developer team visited us for a tour in Berlin where we could compare the jet-powered e-Foil from Audi with the eFoil from Lift. The Lift eFoil is a mass production electric hydrofoil shipping since summer 2018 while the e-tron hydrofoil is a prototype. So this comparison is not about the details, but about the different concepts….
The Audi e-tron electric hydrofoil with jet propulsion is a project from Audi’s engineer Franz Hofmann and Christian Roessler from Technical University of Munich. It was showcased at Kiel Regatta & LA autoshow in 2018 and the CES consumer electronics show in Las Vegas in January 2019.
