Well, Audi apparently did well this year despite all that stuff with the Dieselgate scandal. To make the connection with the people better than ever before, they have filmed a minute long commercial in which they wish us happy 2017. Yes, they have said it like that because, well, 2016 will be better as intense. Audi’s progress is intense. Looking from their perspective, Audi will have more than a few impressive and interesting events held in 2016. New cars will reach roads, EVs will start to shape up their lineup even more and the new Audi A4, the one they reveal here, is a great cause for happiness. This is a car whose character is perfectly matched with their “intense” nature.
If you ask how intense – well, to the Moon intense. In 2016, they will make the biggest step any car company ever did- they will land a rover on the Moon. Yes, the Moon lander will have an Audi logo on it and it is a part of the Google Lunar XPrize competition. The German team of scientists teamed up with Audi in their efforts to launch and land a Moon lander on the Moon. In order to make all this possible and win one of the awards Google is giving away, the Moon lander will have to cover some space on the surface, make some scientific research, send live stream link to Earth, send a bunch of data and prove that even small teams with limited budgets can aim for the Moon.
