Audi is taking its involvement in Europe’s biggest startup conference to the next level: At this year’s Web Summit, which will start this Tuesday in Dublin, the company is participating in the central pitch competition as one of the jurors. At this event, young entrepreneurs compete with each other by pitching their digital business ideas and introduce themselves to potential investors, international groups and media representatives. AUDI AG will in addition be presenting its activities in the arena of piloted driving in a keynote speech and exhibition.
This Audi drives on rails: A 1,000 horsepower plug in hybrid locomotive manufactured by Alstom replaces the plant locomotives previously used at the Audi plant in Ingolstadt as of today. This means that components and finished Audi models will now reach the plant’s loading stations in a more climate friendly way.
