It is reported to be more than double the range of the high beams beyond 43mph. At the back of the vehicle, as the driver comes nearer or departs from the car – there are LEDs with OLED technology that create a unique animation.

Car suspension motion can scan the road ahead: Audi system uses electric motors to make adjustments, contrary to hydraulics. Cameras are used to view the road ahead. However on the other hand, a computer tells the suspension based on the faults it ‘notices’.
