Headlights? Where We’re Going We Won’t Need Headlights

To paraphrase Dr. Emmet Brown from the classic film Back To The Future, on Tuesday of this week at the Frankfort Auto Show in Germany Audi exhibited a bizarre all-electric concept vehicle, the E-Tron AI:Trail Quattro. A futuristic off-road SUV with no headlights.

Well, it does have five drone-borne lights which light the way from overhead.

I am not kidding.
