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.
I don’t usually write about cars in my blog, but this one just made me look twice. All-electric, off-road, aircraft yoke instead of steering wheel, glass-wrapped cockpit, high-clearance wheel-base, able to ford 1.6 feet of water and NO headlights.
Well, it does have five drone-borne lights which light the way from overhead.
I am not kidding.
True, the likelihood of this radical SUV showing up in a showroom near you is almost zero, but it does underscore one thing: Either, Audi is really trying to think outside the box, OR their design team has just too much time on their hands. You be the judge.
