We now have an official date and place for the debut of the all-new 2018 Audi A8: July 11 at Audi Summit in Barcelona. So it is probably a good time to go through the ‘preview’ information we have on the grandest Audi of them all, especially as this bad boy seems quite serious about wanting a bigger piece of the luxury segment pie. 

In order to do that the 2018 Audi A8 needs to be more luxurious and more technologically advanced than Mercedes S-Class, and better to drive than BMW 7 Series. The luxury and driving part are yet to be evaluated, but even from the teaser material you can tell in terms of technology the new A8 is going to be at the top of its game. The car benefits from extensive use of Artificial Intelligence in systems as various as automated parking to traffic jam assist.

As for the powertrain, 2018 Audi A8 will introduce the firm’s latest electrification technologies with its mild-hybrid drive vehicles (MHEVs). All model regardless of the engine will boast this system with the A8 getting a beefy 48-volt version. This not only helps with the fuel efficiency, it’ll also enhance the performance of the car.

Audi A8 is also one of the lightest vehicles in its class thanks mainly to a sophisticated spaceframe made from a mix of material. For the next generation of the Audi A8, an intelligent mix of four materials is being used for the first time in the weight-bearing body structure – more materials than in any of the brand’s previous production models. The luxury sedan is thus once again rightfully claiming its role as an innovation driver in automotive lightweight design: Its low weight and impressive rigidity offer greater performance, efficiency and safety.
