No wonder Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a part of the new Audi concept name. It is the AI that will be responsible for every second of a person's stay in the car or nearby. It could have illuminated the track with headlights when the driver approaches, adjusted the lighting and music to the driver’s mood, order the delivery of snacks with the help of drones. Who knows, maybe?

Any serial embodiment of the AI:ME prototype does not reveal anything specific, so it is only a visual concept of future road cars.

According to the designers, the compact city car of the future does not need huge batteries that provide a week's drive range. There is also no need in high acceleration. To withstand significant overloads in turns is not necessary either.

The Audi AI:ME is powered by a 65-kW battery with an unmarked drive range and electric motor on the rear axle with a power output of 170 hp. The electric hatchback fitted with such powertrain is said to adapt to the most typical cycle of operations in metropolises, where it is always possible to charge the battery and fit in the speed range from 20-70 km/h.

Having a length of 4.3 meters, the concept belongs to the class of compact cars but the wheelbase of 2.77 meters allows it to have a spacious interior of a higher class cars.

Audi refers to the concept car interior as a «third living space». Given the amount of time we spend in cars, this makes sense. That's why there are ultra-comfortable armchairs with textile upholstery, as in home furniture; a huge amount of free space; a set of dishes with magnetic holders and a wide range of online services: Audi AI:ME passengers can use not only voice control, but also VR glasses with augmented reality system. The OLED monitor, which stretches along the entire front panel, is also responsible for the visual display. The interior’s walnut wood finishing and living vine plants are also associated with an ordinary living room.

The Audi AI:ME is equipped with a fourth-level automatic control system and able to drive almost completely by itself.
