2017 Frankfurt Motor Show: The Audi Aicon concept car

By CARSIFU | 14 September 2017

FRANKFURT: Design study, technology demonstrator, mobility concept: the Aicon shows Audi's idea of autonomous luxury sedan of the future.

As a design study, the four-door 2+2 boldly leaps ahead to show the exterior and interior design of the next decades. The technology demonstrator combines innovations relating to the drivetrain, suspension, digitalization and sustainability in a visionary manner.


And as a mobility concept, the Audi Aicon shows the world of tomorrow, in which the advantages of door-to-door individual transportation are combined with the luxurious ambience of a first-class airline cabin; possessing no steering wheel or pedals, but fully loaded with luxurious and ergonomic accommodation and the full range of infotainment technology.


In contrast to a robot taxi, which is pure functionality, the autonomous Audi Aicon concept vehicle has presence, and its exterior hints at the spacious comfort afforded the passengers and the upscale technical aspirations.

From the exterior, the Audi Aicon is the very definition of presence, with its sheer size – an exterior length of 5,444mm, a width of 2,100mm and a height of 1,506mm placing it firmly in the top tier of automobiles. In fact, the wheelbase measures 3,470mm, about 240mm more than with the long-wheelbase version of the new Audi A8.
