Audi Back to Drive the World Economic Forum

Just like it happened last year, German manufacturer Audi will be the official vehicle provider for the guests attending the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, starting today, January 26.

The car maker will deploy to the region no less than 86 Audi A8L models, 12 armored high-security vehicles and some of the models which will make up the car maker's electric future, for all decision makers attending the event to see.

As a major success for those fighting for a greener future, traffic in the Davos region will be closed to all vehicles that do not meet the emissions requirements imposed by the organizers. That means that if you drive a vehicle which emits more than 200 g CO2/km (321.87 g/mile), you'll have to ditch it and move on your own feet. The new limit is 30 g CO2/km (48.28 g/mile) stricter than that imposed last year.

Aside for bringing the cars to Davos, Audi will fill the region with its four-ringed logo. The car maker will host several events in the city, including a Pavilion near the Lake Davos. Here, people can experience the A1 and a sports car, both in their e-tron incarnations.

For those daring enough, Audi will be offering the chance to drive on ice and snow, as part of the Audi Driving Experience. Fifteen Audi A8 4.2 TDI have been specially brought there for all to, for instance, stop protesting and start driving.

For the VIPs, Audi has prepared the Lounge in the reception of the “Steigenberger Belvedere” hotel, where an A7 Sportback 3.0 TFSI is being displayed.
