With an ambitious goal of phasing out the production of combustion cars by 2033, pioneering innovation is second nature at Audi. We sat down with  Audi to discover what drives the brand’s undeniable passion.

It’s no secret that Audi is driving positive change in the world of electrification, pursuing ambitious goals to reduce carbon emissions while maintaining the striking design, next-level driving dynamics, and unmatched power-you-can-feel that define the Audi DNA.
 
We cherish our enduring partnership with Audi, as their pioneering innovations in the space of sustainably focused mobility champions our mission to safeguard the 1 world. Together, we’re helping to drive sustainability forward with the fully electric, zero-direct emission Audi e-tron, the official vehicle of 1 Hotels.
 
We sat down with Audi to learn about the roots of our collaboration, how Audi prioritizes greater sustainability, and what makes the e-tron such a unique electric model. You can experience the incredible power of the Audi e-tron by taking a chauffeured ride, test-driving it for yourself, or embarking on curated Audi Excursions at any of our US properties, and enjoying a chauffeured ride in the UK and Canada. 


GET BEHIND THE WHEEL OF SUSTAINABLE MOBILITY WITH AUDI

Audi and 1 Hotels have been long-time partners. How did this sponsorship come to fruition?

Collaborating with 1 Hotels strengthens the Audi mission to work with like-minded organizations that stand for living progress and creating a more electrified and sustainable future. Both brands share a commitment towards electrification, more sustainable mobility, investing in community projects, giving back to society and the environment, and trying to use resources responsibly as part of a larger effort to become net-carbon neutral.

How is Audi driving sustainability?

At Audi, the future is electric. We are working towards creating a more sustainable future, which includes our commitment to phase out the production of combustion cars by 2033. To meet these ambitious goals, we’re continuously innovating and exploring a variety of approaches to help us get there. 

How does the Audi e-tron help support your sustainability efforts?

In 2018, we launched the Audi e-tron, our first fully electric vehicle. Since then, Audi has expanded our line of electric vehicles to five models, with more to come. The Audi Q8 e-tron and the Audi Q8 e-tron Sportback are manufactured at Audi Brussels, which is the world’s first carbon-neutral high-volume production facility in the premium segment.*

What makes the Audi e-tron unique?

Our electric models have engaging performance, sophisticated design, and intuitive technology—all while offering innovation, comfort, and efficiency. The latest iteration of Audi’s flagship electric SUV—the Audi Q8 e-tron has been refined with increased driving range, faster and easier charging capabilities, and improved driving dynamics from the previous generation Audi e-tron.**

Recently, 1 Hotels rolled out Audi Excursions, which allow guests to explore our cities through a curated itinerary while traveling via e-tron.

What is the range of a 2024 Audi Q8 e-tron when fully charged? 

The 2024 Audi Q8 e-tron has an EPA-estimated range of  285 miles**, which allows you to explore the beautiful and dynamic places around the 1 Hotels properties on any of the thrilling Audi Excursion drives.

What other e-tron models are available at 1 Hotel Properties?

Other e-tron models available include the entry model to Audi’s electrified portfolio, the Audi Q4 e-tron, and the Audi Q8 e-tron.
