Audi Drives the 40th World Economic Forum

The 40th edition of the World Economic Forum will be supported on the road by a fleet of no less than 270 Audi and Volkswagen vehicles, sent to the event which will start on January 27 to become a means of transportation for the delegates. Audi will offer 86 Audi A8L 3.0 TDI sedans for the chauffeur service for the guests in Davos, including twelve armored.

In addition, 70 vehicles - 3.0 TDI quattro, 2.0 TDI quattro and 2.0 TFSI quattro versions of the Audi Q5 - have been available for the Swiss police for the duration of the World Economic Forum. In all, out of the 270 German cars in Davos, 190 are Audis.

The Audi fleet sent to Davos, where the Forum will be held, are all badged with the so called “Green Eco” sticker, a mark which allows only vehicles who eat up less than 9l/100 km (26 mpg) to gain access through the checkpoints in Davos. According to Audi, their fleet averages 8.5l/100 km (27 mpg), just under the limit.

In addition to the cars offered to delegates, Audi will also showcase the new A8 and e-tron electric concept car at the mobile Audi Terminal at Lake Davos. The cars are the same which have been displayed at NAIAS for the last two weeks.

Next to the Audi Terminal, the carmaker set up a test drive area, where those brave enough can drive one of twelve Audi A5 3.2 FSI quattro models over the layer of ice and snow covering Lake Davos.
