Audi has designed a new concept for megacities with dense traffic

Car manufacturer Audi unveiled a connected mobility concept at Auto China 2016 in Beijing. Designed to help navigate urban areas, it offers sporty and multifunctional mobility for mega-cities with dense traffic and road restrictions.

The vehicle features an electrically-powered longboard made from carbon fiber and aluminum integrated into the rear bumper. It charges automatically while stored inside, has a battery range of more than 12 kilometers and can reach speeds of up to 30 km/h.

The car’s infotainment system can link to the user's smartphone calendar and calculate the fastest mobility mix based on real-time traffic data. If the longboard option is faster, the system will recommend a nearby parking space where the driver can leave their car.
