The latest showstopper from the Audi bandwagon has arrived.

It’s called the R8 e-tron piloted driving concept sports car and it’s based on an Audi combustion engine model, the R8, recently unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show in March.

“We are very happy that we can show you the brand new Audi R8 e-tron piloted driving,” says Audi PR Manager, Josef Schlossmacher.

This is a brand new car which is targeting very far into the future. It’s our newest sports car, the basic model, with a combustion engine, the Audi R8 was just unveiled at Geneva Motor Show at the beginning of March.

Schlossmacher claims the car is totally emission-free, but unlike many electric cars, this model goes the distance.

On one single charge - which takes around two hours - it can drive over 400 kilometres (approximately 248 miles).

It can also do speed.

Schlossmacher claims the car is capable of hitting 0-62 miles-per-hour in 3.9 seconds and has a high speed of 155 miles-per-hour.

Also on display is a prototype of Audi’s new wireless charging system.

Audi aren’t the only car manufacturers exhibiting at CES Asia. Ford, Mercedes Benz and Volkswagen are also showing off their latest auto-related technology.
