For Audi, efficiency is the sum of numerous individual steps all leading to one major goal: the combination of low fuel consumption with comfort and an enjoyable driving experience. From the further development of innovative engine technologies to high-efficiency drive train and transmission components, intelligent lightweight body construction to low-drag aerodynamics, the engineers at Audi are working hard on every component and system in the vehicle to reduce consumption and emissions. But there are still many other variables to consider. The efficiency of the auxiliaries, optimizing the rolling resistance of the tires, intelligent energy management and modern, comprehensively networked driver assistance systems also play a significant role here.
