The hype stop up-in version of the A8L will be Audi’s first to use inductive charging, instead of a power rope.

Owners and (probably more likely) chauffeurs alike will be able to really drive over a charging pad that automatically charges the A8L plug-in’s batteries.

The appurtenance-cost option puts a coil under the A8L’s front axle. When the car drives on the other side of the charging plate, it rises up until it’s within a few fractions of an inch from the wrap and starts charging the batteries, which are good enough to move the car for about 30 miles on their own.

Now, if that sounds a dwarf tricky, lining something under car up with something even more secondary to the car, don’t worry because Audi’s thought of that, too. When you’re ready to custody, the display screen helps you to find the charging plate.

Together, the electric motor and 3.0-liter gasoline mechanism combine to produce 442 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque, sending power, predictably, to all four wheels.

Theoretically, the powertrain could be made close by on the standard wheelbase A8, but a spokesperson told Digital Trends that its wider availability resolution depend on demand.

And given its self-parking capabilities, it doesn’t upo much imagination to envision a future in which an electrified Audi will go learn its own charging bay, that it could then vacate when charged.

Back here in the area of reality, though, the plug-in A8 should hit showrooms next year.
