Report: Audi A8L Introduces Wireless Charging


By: Sebastien Bell
The plug-in version of the A8L will be Audi’s first to use inductive charging, instead of a power cord.
Owners and (probably more likely) chauffeurs alike will be able to simply drive over a charging pad that automatically charges the A8L plug-in’s batteries.
The extra-cost option puts a coil under the A8L’s front axle. When the car drives over the charging plate, it rises up until it’s within a few fractions of an inch from the coil and starts charging the batteries, which are good enough to move the car for about 30 miles on their own.
Now, if that sounds a little tricky, lining something under car up with something even more under the car, don’t worry because Audi’s thought of that, too. When you’re ready to charge, the display screen helps you to find the charging plate.
Together, the electric motor and 3.0-liter gasoline engine combine to produce 442 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque, sending power, predictably, to all four wheels.
Theoretically, the powertrain could be made available on the standard wheelbase A8, but a spokesperson told Digital Trends that its wider availability will depend on demand.
And given its self-parking capabilities, it doesn’t take much imagination to envision a future in which an electrified Audi will go find its own charging bay, that it could then vacate when charged.
Back here in the realm of reality, though, the plug-in A8 should hit showrooms next year.
