The new Audi A8 has an active suspension system that can read the road ahead to ensure occupant enjoy an unruffled ride. The vehicle features a futuristic new camera-linked adaptive suspension. Plus the 2018 Audi A8 features several global automotive firsts to improve comfort and passive safety while maximizing dynamism. It has an electromechanical suspension system powered by a 48-volt main electrical system. Its dynamic all-wheel steering creates a perfect balance between agility and stability and gives the vehicle an even smaller turning circle than the A4.

This innovative new Audi A8 will make its world debut on July 11 in Barcelona at the inaugural Audi Summit. It’s the most advanced model the company has ever launched. The all-new Audi A8’s active suspension uses advanced camera technology connected to each wheel’s individual electric motor. This lets each wheel adapt to road surface changes precisely. This provides the vehicle with the most finely differentiated balance it’s ever had.To see it in person and get a feel for an Audi A8, check one out at Tucson Audi.

This is possible because of the A8s new 48-volt electrical system-powered active suspension. It’s the first time it’s been used as the primary electrical system.

The all-new active suspension is a fully active suspension system that’s electromechanical. It drives each wheel individually plus it adapts to the road conditions. Each wheel’s electric motor is powered by the electrical system. The additional components of the system include gears, a rotary tube, an internal titanium torsion bar, plus a lever which uses a coupling rod to exerts as much as 811.3 lb-ft of pressure on the suspension.

The system is predictive and preventative. The front camera detects upcoming roadway bumps and adjusts the active suspension. Before the car hits the bump, the system causes the actuators to transmit the appropriate amount of travel and control the suspension actively. This enables the suspension to react at the right time and eliminate jolts and vibrations. This complex process takes mere milliseconds. The camera provides road surface information about 18 times a second.

The electronic chassis platform reads the road surface information then controls all suspension components in near real time. In conjunction with the A8’s fine-tuned air suspension, this innovative suspension concept provides a completely new driving experience and a high level of comfort no matter if a dynamic driving style is used. The active suspension influences and minimises the rolling movements when cornering as well as pitching movements when accelerating and braking.

The active suspension combined with Audi’s pre-sense 360˚ safety system takes the passive safety on the A8 to a new level. Using sensors networked into its central driver assistance controller, the system detects collision risks around the car. If side impact is imminent at over 15mph, the suspension actuators quickly raises the car’s body as much as 80 mm in a half second. This directs the collision to stronger areas of the vehicle like its floor structure or side sills. This as much as 50% of the load the occupants experience.

The new Audi A8 will be released in the UK in late 2017.
