Report: The next-gen Audi A8 delayed to 2017 for autonomous driving R&D

The next-gen Audi A8 is reportedly being delayed until 2017 because Ingolstadt needs more time to perfect their autonomous driving tech.

Audi’s been promising the A8 to be one of the first cars available with a fully-autonomous drive system. But due to some drawbacks with the design of the electrics the reveal of the carl’s been delayed.

That sounds perfectly ok to us because the last thing anyone would want is an autonomously driven car that’s technically flawed.

The report hails in from AutoCar, who learned about the delay when speaking to Audi spokespeople.

Think Audi’s going to beat everyone to the punch?
