It’s Here: The 2018 Audi A8 Will Be Brand’s Intelligent Centerpiece

The latest Audi vehicles have showcased the brand’s move towards a more tech-centric brand of premium performance, and the 2018 A8 is here to seal the deal. Unveiled today, the fourth-generation flagship is pioneering a mild hybrid powertrain fueled by a 48-volt electrical system, and cutting-edge driver assistance and safety tech.

Not only will this electrical system power help the engine, but also the car’s new Audi AI feature. This new system will be able to monitor a driver’s behaviors and style, and offer suggestions based on them. We’re also told it will aid the suspension—which can be retuned based on sensors that scan the road several times a millisecond—which will provide the smoothest possible ride. As for semi-autonomous features, the A8 will have a traffic jam pilot system that can take over throttle, steering, and braking for a driver at speeds of up to 37 mph.

More information is sure to be released closer to the A8’s street date later this year, or early next year. If you want to explore the tech on our latest models, contact our Audi dealership in Wilmington, NC as it’s convenient.
