Audi concept cars, driving into the future

As a design concept, the four-door 2+2 boldly leaps ahead to show the exterior and interior design of the next decades. The technology demonstrator combines innovations relating to the drivetrain, suspension, digitalization and sustainability in a visionary manner. The Aicon is designed for purely electric operation to cover distances between 700 and 800 kilometers.
Audi Elaine is Audi’s first full electric autonomous piloted driving concept SUV that represents Audi’s solution to urban and sustainable living. Audi Elaine is an electric-powered SUV coupe that in a few short years will make highly automated driving possible – at times even without a driver on board. The driver parks the Audi in a designated area – the “handover zone” – and exits the vehicle. From there, the car drives automatically and unoccupied into a multistory parking garage offering a variety of services, such as a car wash, a package station, a gas station or a charging post. Thanks to Audi AI, the car does all of this itself.
Sharing the limelight is the Audi e-tron Vision Gran Turismo, the first concept car to be deployed from the playstation to real-world race tracks as a fully functional vehicle.
