2019 Audi A8 Can Drive Itself, Has AI, and Other Cutting-Edge Goodies

While competing luxury flagships dial up their version of cutting-edge tech, Audi seems poised to knock them out of the park with the most complete, nigh-autonomous intelligent model yet. Meet the fourth generation 2019 A8, which offers everything from mild-hybrid functions to the brand’s first ever AI.

To those having flashbacks to 2001: A Space Odyssey (or the Terminator movies), don’t fret. The Audi AI system debuting on the A8 will merely observe, and make suggestions based on your habits. It will be powered by the same 48-volt mild hybrid system that will save drivers on gas, while also powering four-wheel steering and fully adaptive suspension. Traffic jam pilot will also debut, allowing the A8 to drive itself under a certain speed. When it comes to the U.S. next spring, it will offer a TSFI V6 with 340 horsepower, although more engines are expected to join it.
