New Audi A8 is 'most technological yet'

Top five features of the 4th generation Audi

The Audi AI remote parking pilot and the Audi AI remote garage pilot autonomously steer the A8 into and out of a parking space or a garage, while the manoeuvre is monitored by the driver. In 2018, Audi will begin production of cars that will have piloted driving functions such as parking pilot, traffic jam pilot and garage pilot.

Audi's level three autonomous driving system manages starting, accelerating, steering and braking.

All these engine variants work in conjunction with a belt alternator starter (BAS), which runs a 48V electrical system. The 48-volt system powers a number of functions increasing fuel efficiency, including an extended start/stop function and an energy recovery output of up to 12 kW.

For the 2018 model year, the A8 will start by being first sold in the German market.

Audi A8 is powered by V6 turbo engines, a 3.0 TDI and 3.0 TFSI. They will quickly be joined by a new 4-litre eight-cylinder TDI diesel of 435hp while a 6-litre W12 will also be on offer. The interior is undoubtedly new though - gone are the numerous buttons and knobs, replaced by a new generation of the Audi Virtual Cockpit as well as a pair of touchscreens on the center console, taking care of the climate controls and the 10.1-inch MMI infotainment system.

Hotovely said she made clear that in any future agreement, the settlements will remain. He will also pay a courtesy call on Israel's President, Reuben Rivlin.

Likely to be most anticipated, however, will be the A8 L e-tron quattro, a plug-in hybrid version combing a 3-litre TFSI petrol engine and electric motor for 449hp and 700Nm of torque.

The new Audi A8, which made its world debut at the Audi Summit in Barcelona, has a new design language, a touchscreen operating concept and a systematically electrified drive. That's most likely based on Europe's NEDC range standard, and it would be less when being rated in the USA under the Environmental Protection Agency's standard. The lithium-ion battery will be good for 31 miles (50 kilometers) of electric range and can be recharged wirelessly.

It will be able to be charged by Audi Wireless Charging.

The automaker is known for its sports appeal, which is showcased on the exterior design of the new A8.
