We’ve already done a story covering some of the innovative features that are coming with the 2018 Audi A8 but the word is out that it’s getting yet another feature that many car owners are going to want, self parking. No it’s not the first car to ever offer self-parking as a feature, but it is the first Audi vehicle and we’re sure that it’s pretty much perfected as well. The A8 should be able to handle a wide range of parking conditions, and that will make doing things like parallel parking in the city, or getting into your garage at the end of the day a bit easier. The vehicle is even capable of backing into a parking space, making it easier for poor parkers to get their vehicle situated when backing in is called for.

Remote Self Parking

In the ad by Audi the A8 sedan is told to park itself by a simple button press on the keyfob and then it capably pulls itself into the garage without hitting anything at all. It’s not a brand-new feature that you can’t find on any luxury cars today, but the 2018 A8 will be the first Audi to receive the feature and something for Audi fans to celebrate.

In order to make self parking possible the A8 comes with the full suite of sensors and radar systems that are used with things like adaptive cruise control, lane assistance and emergency braking systems. The car will of course come with some added safety features as well and should be more convenient to own than many other A8 models in the past.

Complementing the 48V Setup

These new tech-heavy improvements just compliment Audi’s move to the 48V electrical system throughout the A8. Not only will the car be able to park itself and be safer than ever before, but it will also have regenerative braking and special electrical systems that make it more efficient and capable than ever before. The latest A8 is going to be a revolutionary product that’s worth the purchase because of all the added capabilities worked into it.

While Audi is already hard at working teasing the 2018 A8, it won’t be revealed until July 11 at the Audi Summit in Barcelona Spain. That’s when you’ll learn about all the different features offered and why so many people are going to want the A8 when it finally comes out.
