How Electric Cars Bend Air To Increase Range!

Imogen and Jack travel to a top secret wind tunnel at Audi’s HQ in Ingolstadt to find out how they use aerodynamics to increase range.

Improving range still tops the agenda as a way to convince drivers to go electric. But the question is, how do car companies do it?! Better batteries are one solution, but what role can aerodynamics and drag play in the plight for more efficient electric cars?!
