Audi AI:ME Gallery

An autonomous car that has to deal with congested urban environments needs to be something special, and Audi believes its AI:ME concept is just the trick. Sized like a compact, it nonetheless delivers interior space from the class above by virtue of its clever drivetrain packaging. An electric motor mounted to the rear axle means there’s little in the way of mechanical intrusion into the cabin.

It left Audi’s designers with plenty of room to experiment. There’s a steering wheel and pedals, but they retract away when the AI:ME is in Level 4 autonomous mode. After that, you can use Audi’s Holoride VR experience, take advantage of the active noise cancelation to get some sleep, or just enjoy the lounge-style seating.

Audi’s vision for AI:ME is one of access, not necessarily ownership. You’d summon the car from an app, with all your personal settings and preferences preloaded when it arrives. When you reach your destination, there’s no need to park: just send the AI:ME on its way.
