Revealed at Auto Shanghai 2019, the futuristic Audi AI:ME is an all-electric hatchback that just might be the perfect city car. The vehicle is powered by a 65 kWh battery pack, paired with a synchronous electric motor located at the rear axle, generating a combined 170 hp. What makes it so good for cruising the streets is its Level 4 autonomous driving system, which enables it to drive itself without driver input. The AI system is “capable of learning and thinking, while also being proactive and personal,” said the company. However, you’ll still find a steering wheel and pedals in case of emergency.

On the inside, you’ll find two seats up front and a single rear bench seat. There’s also a 3D display with VR goggles that enables passengers to watch movies and experience interactive gaming while in the car, while a high-quality audio system, combined with the noise-canceling interior, drowns out traffic noise.
The most interesting feature would be the vehicle’s “green” roof, one in which designers used filigree wooden struts to construct a pergola above the interior roof surface, allowing you to grow live plants. This creates a connection between the driver and nature, while also improving air quality inside the cabin.
