New A8 breaks cover revealing autonomous driving tech
The most technological advanced Audi A8 has been revealed which boasts new levels of autonomous driving.
Redesigned from the ground up, the all-new Audi A8 has been unveiled in Barcelona this morning (Tuesday 11th July) before a exclusive audience at the Audi Summit.
The mild hybrid with its 48-volt main electrical system allows coasting with its engine switched off and drivetrain decoupled, an extended start-stop mode and a high level of brake-energy recuperation. The forth generation A8 is the world’s first series-produced car developed for highly automated driving. In traffic jams on the highway, it can take over control at speeds up to 60 kilometers per hour, while the driver can be otherwise occupied.
