The new Audi e-tron is the first 100% electric SUV of the Ingolstadt-based brand. It’s quite unique and competes head-to-head with the new Jaguar i-Pace (which just got the prize of Car of the Year 2019). Audi promoted its new vehicle in a very clever and spectacular way at the Munich airport. While on business trip in Bavaria I was pleased to discover a temporary installation outside the airport terminal.
Audi had installed a sort of indoor parcours for their new SUV where prospective customers could try the vehicle in real conditions. As you can see on the pictures below a small “hill” had even be installed to test the crossing capacities of the Audi e-tron.
Next to the parcours Audi was also proposing passengers in transit to play immersive video games and exhibited the concept car that gave birth to the Audi e-tron.
I can’t tell what the return on investment could be on such a project but for sure it caught the attention of the many passengers that were in transit and who found a nice way to spend their time while waiting on their plane.
