Report: Audi will offer a self-driving car, R8 e-tron is still alive

At  Audi’s annual press conference, Ulrich Hackenberg, Audi board member for Technical Development, mentioned that the new Q7 will be up for replacement later this year, that the new A8 would offer “piloted driving” (in other words, a self driving car for low speeds), and that a 2 liter diesel powered TT will be available in Europe later this year.

With a CO2 rating comparable with many hybrid cars, the 2015 Audi TT diesel Ultra will put out 110g/km of CO2, this will allow the car to fit in a lower tax annual carbon tax in the UK.  Hackenberg did not mention a specific time frame, but that further development is in the cards for the R8 e-tron. The electric supercar, based on the Lamborghini Huracan, got a significant boost over its previous range and not only can lap the Nurburgring in 8:09, but also can offer up a 279 mile range
