Audi A8 2017 Weight Alterations
As for the Audi A8's new weight, the company is allegedly using lightweight materials to achieve the car's weight goal. It was said that the vehicle is likely using carbon fiber, aluminum and magnesium to make sure that the Audi A8 is as light as it possibly can. The aluminum part will be on the A8's base while the carbon fiber and magnesium will be for the other components of the vehicle.
Nevertheless, all these lightweight parts will likely make up for the additional weight that the Audi A8 is coming with. Apparently, there are several things that will affect the car's overall weight. For instance, the full-length panoramic sunroof of the model is already an undeniable weight factor for the vehicle. Additionally, the autonomous technology of the 2017 Audi A8 will also affect the car's weight. There will be more cameras and electronics and this will not make the model any lighter. Furthermore, the Audi A8's use of a 48-volt electric for the sensors also adds into the car's weight.
Moreover, the Audi A8 will also have a plug-in hybrid variant. This will carry heavy batteries, thus increasing the vehicle's weight even further. Nevertheless, the company's use of strategic materials will help make the Audi A8 2017 as light as possible. Do note that despite the heavy parts of this car, it is actually one of the most high-tech models in the market. The Audi A8 2017 is able to take full driving control without driver supervision.
