The Art of Moving Forward:

In the final edition of our collaboration with Audi, we take a look back to ask what we’ve learned about the very notion of progress. We catch up with some of the car giant’s top minds and ask leaders from the worlds of design and urbanism how progressive design stands to affect the future.

Further information on official fuel consumption figures and the official specific CO₂ emissions of new passenger cars can be found in the guide “Information on the fuel consumption, CO₂ emissions and electricity consumption of new cars”, which is available free of charge at all sales dealerships and from DAT Deutsche Automobil Treuhand GmbH, Hellmuth-Hirth-Strasse 1, 73760 Ostfildern-Scharnhausen, Germany (www.dat.de).
