Audi Shows Off Fully-Restored DKW Electric Van (1956)

January 26th, 2015 | 0 Comments | News

The DKW was one of the four original brands that eventually formed Audi. In 1956, it became a vehicle called the Schnellaster Kastenwagen, which roughly translates as Rapid Transit Van, a vehicle driven by a 42 hp two-stroke 896cc three-cylinder engine displacement.

However, DKW also made around 100 fully electric versions of the vehicle, which were sold primarily to the German power company at the time. Of these, only two are known to be on the left, one of which is the fully restored example you see in the gallery after the jump virtual.

Actually, it has been restored by the Audi own, and you certainly will end up a museum piece, although you can move yourself around – the power is around 7hp, the maximum speed is 40 km / h (25 mph) and its range is trading at about 80 km or 50 miles.
