(Canadian International AutoShow, February 2018) - The fourth-generation Audi A8 is the first production automobile in the world to have been developed specifically for conditional automated driving at Level 3.

The Audi AI traffic jam pilot takes charge of driving in slow-moving traffic at up to 60 km/h on highways and freeways. The system is activated using the AI button on the center console. The A8 is powered by a 3.0 TFSI engine that produces 340 hp. Power is transferred via an eight-speed tiptronic transmission that delivers fast and smooth gear shifts. The electronically controlled automatic transmission is paired with quattro permanent all-wheel drive.
