The Audi A4: even sportier and even more cutting edge

The A4 represents the core of the brand – after four years in the making, Audi has made the successful midsize model even tauter and sportier. Its exterior is integrated into the brand’s new design language; the large MMI touch display offers the kind of operating experience customers will be familiar with from their smartphone. Many engine options now come with mild-hybrid systems (MHEV) – efficiency and comfort benefit from this broad-based electrification. This also applies to the Audi S4 TDI (combined fuel consumption 6.3 – 6.2 l/100 km (37.3 - 37.9 US mpg)*; combined CO2 emissions 166 – 163 g/km (267.2 – 262.3 g/mi)*, with a V6 TDI under the hood for the first time, a 48-volt main electrical system and an electric powered compressor (EPC), which lends its beefy acceleration even more spontaneity. This combination of power, torque and efficiency makes it unique in the segment.

Audi networks with traffic lights in Europe

Audi is introducing the vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) service “Traffic Light Information” to Europe. From July Audi will network new models with the traffic lights in Ingolstadt/Germany; further European cities will follow from 2020 onwards. Then cars will be more likely to catch a “green wave” in the city: Audi drivers will see in the cockpit what speed is required to reach the next traffic light on green. If that is not possible within the permitted speed limit, there will be a countdown to the next green phase. Driving in cities will thus become more relaxed and efficient. In the USA, Audi customers have already been using this service since late 2016. Audi is the first manufacturer worldwide to network its series-production models with traffic lights in cities.

Benchmark for long-distance journeys: the charging power of the Audi e-tron

With the e-tron, Audi is making electric mobility a reality for long-distance driving – thanks in part to charging power that is unique among the competition. The e-tron is not only the first mass-produced car that can be charged with up to 150 kW of electricity at a fast charging terminal. The high charging power over a large portion of the charging procedure sets a benchmark and shortens downtime. Sophisticated thermal management of the battery ensures the performance capability at cold and hot outside temperatures.
