When you are looking at purchasing your next Audi vehicle you will more than likely come across the Audi Vorsprung trim lines. If you recognise the name, it’s because it comes from the Audi Slogan ‘Vorsprung Durch Technik’; German for ‘progress through technology’ which is apparent when you are viewing Audi vehicles, considerably so with the Audi Q5.
When Audi were developing the e-tron, it was tested to extremes: in their wind tunnel, the e-tron was able to withstand gusts of wind up to 300km/h, stronger than a category 5 hurricane which consists of winds over 251km/h.
Audi has recently introduced their Predictive efficiency assistant which enables your vehicle to reduce fuel consumption of up to 10%. Using data from the navigation system to enable the car to slow down in an anticipatory manner.
Each Vorsprung vehicle offers Adaptive Cruise Assist, employing an array of sensors and cameras to help monitor up to 250m ahead allowing you to automatically keep your distance whilst in traffic. The assistant can accelerate, brake and steering input to assist you in a variety of driving situations.
The Audi e-tron can exceed 62 miles of range in less than 10 minutes when charging on a 150 kW KC charger. Additionally, the e-tron can achieve 80% charge in 30 minutes and a full charge in 50 minutes which is at least as fast as the latest smartphones.
Even when taking into account an Audi coat of paint, Vorsprung is in everything that they do. Ultra-thin, ultra-sparkle – using the latest technologies. At just one tenth of a millimetre, the paint on an Audi is no thicker than a human hair. Regardless of this, car paint must continue to be resistant to environmental influences and wear – and has remained so for decades on the roads.
Using radar sensors Audi have made leaving a junction far safer. Using Cross Traffic Assist technology your vehicle can automatically apply the brakes if it senses anything about to cross your path.
No matter the length or the weather you use your car in, the Audi scent specialists known as the ‘Nose Team’ have considered those humid days when choosing the materials, they have added to your car. Even under extreme conditions you Audi will always been smelling fresh.
Audi is in constant pursuit of progress. For more information on Audi Vorsprung you may contact your local Vindis Audi centre, alternatively you could visit us and view our current vehicles you can see our locations HERE.
All vehicles that are sold by the Vindis Group are subject to an administrative / preparation fee of £90 inc VAT. For new vehicles this charge covers the cost of mechanically preparing the vehicle for delivery, the administration of new ownership documentation and final preparation for customer handover.
For used vehicles, this charge covers a full history and provenance check prior to being advertised for sale ensuring no financial risk or charge has been levied against the vehicle, that the vehicle has never been written off or stolen and final preparation for customer handover.
Vindis Group believe this level of preparation is crucial in ensuring we provide the highest level of customer satisfaction, for which the Vindis Group is renowned for.
For this reason, and in response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, as of 6.00pm 23/03/2020 we made the decision to temporarily close all Vindis showrooms to members of the public. Whist we know this may cause some disappointment, our priority is to protect the well-being of our employees and customers in line with the latest Government guidance. For customers due to take delivery of your new vehicle we will be in contact and will aim to complete your transaction in a safe and compliant manner.
For those customers that are booked in for Aftersales care, all bookings other than those for Key Workers (as identified by the Government’s latest listings), urgent MOT’s and breakdowns are in the process of being cancelled; and each existing booking will have been confirmed with our team in advance of your visit to site. For other routine service and maintenance items, we will be in touch to re-arrange your booking for as soon as we re-open.
In order to facilitate the above, and in order to protect both you and our staff, our dealerships will be locked for the foreseeable future, and so upon arrival, please follow the instructions on the door in order to gain access. Additionally, it is vital that we ask that you do not attend any of our sites without having had a clear and specific communication that you qualify under one of the above guidelines, and we thank you in advance for complying with this difficult and possibly disruptive decision. Please also note that we have amended our service opening hours during this period to 08:30 – 17:30 Monday to Friday and closed during weekends.
Finally, although our showrooms are closed, should you wish to contact us we would be delighted to help you remotely in anyway possible; the best methods in which to contact us is either via email or through the live chat function found on our main Vindis Group website.
