With the Frankfurt motor divulge fast approaching and rules for autonomous cars reaching milestones, it’s a perfect heyday for Audi show off its leadership in the world of self-driving cars.

As such, Audi is bringing three autonomous cars, each more autonomous than the conclusive, to the show floor next week.

The first is the brand new A8, which we have seen first. This model is the world’s first volume-produced level 3 autonomous car thanks to a way that Audi calls AI traffic jam pilot. The system allows the car to take throughout at speeds of up to 60 km/h (37 mph) on divided highways. The driver must still be prepared to take over driving duties, but is not required to constantly keep a hand on the steering neighbourhood, as in other cars on the market.

Audi is also bringing an SUV Coupe concept based on the e-tron Sportback concept that features consistent 4 autonomous drive. This one features something that Audi calls highway aeronaut that allows the car to take over at speeds of up to 130 km/h (80 mph) and automatically alteration lanes thanks to its clever use of car-to-x technology. The tech allows the concept to talk to infrastructure and other cars to inherit information about driving conditions, road closures, traffic and more.

Conclusively, Audi will bring a level 5 concept. This d-segment car (think condensed executive cars like the A4 or A5) with four electric motors good for 700-800 km of stretch on a charge (nearly 500 miles). The concept looks far into the distance of autonomous tech (the driver is tuneful much unnecessary), but also offers an insight into what Audi is belief of next for its electric vehicles.

It’s not all autonomy and electricity, though. Audi will also be unveiling a up of compressed natural gas powered cars (the A4 Avant g-tron and the A5 Sportback g-tron). More excitingly, despite the fact that, Audi is finally admitting that Audi Sport will reveal an RS Avant car.

I wonderment, oh I wonder, what that could be…
