The World Economic Forum is Getting Greener – Audi Leads
- Audi shuttles comfortably undercut strict CO2 regulations
- A1 e-tron and electric sports car study give a glimpse of the future face of mobility
- Davos premiere for the Audi Lounge
From January 26 to 31, the world’s leaders are coming together at the 41st World Economic Forum to talk about a better future – and Audi is taking them there. As the exclusive shuttle partner for the event, the Company is deploying a total of 86 Audi A8L models, together with twelve armored high-security vehicles. Besides this, the car manufacturer is also presenting its own visions of the future of electric mobility in Davos.
Anyone who wants to drive into downtown Davos over the next few days to visit the World Economic Forum won’t get far without an efficient car, as the barriers will only go up for cars emitting less than 200 g CO2/km (321.87 g/mile). Compared to last year, the limit has been cut by an additional 30 g CO2/km (48.28 g/mile). No problem for the Audi fleet, as the long-wheelbase version of the flagship A8 easily undercuts this mark with 176 g/km (283.24 g/mile).
The Audi Pavilion has become an established feature in Davos. Here, against the idyllic backdrop of Lake Davos, Audi will be offering a taste of the future: the A1 e-tron and the electric sports car study that was premiered at the Detroit Auto Show are resounding proof that electric mobility and driving pleasure do not have to be a contradiction in terms.
The Audi Driving Experience will also be in attendance at the Audi Pavilion this year: here, visitors to the World Economic Forum will be able to put their driving skills to the test on snow and ice, and improve their abilities at the wheel. The company is providing 15 Audi A8 4.2 TDI cars for the driver training courses.
Meanwhile, politicians, leading executives and scientists wishing to unwind at the end of all the grueling rounds of talks and receptions can now do so for the first time in the Audi Lounge. This is sited in a highly prominent location, in the reception of the “Steigenberger Belvédère” hotel, where Audi is exhibiting one of its design highlights, the A7 Sportback 3.0 TFSI.
