audi_cmc_1We know that there are some places that are walkable but due to laziness, some people would much rather drive. Not only is this a waste of gas, but it can also lead to other problems such as adding on to traffic, making parking difficult for other drivers, and so on. However Audi has recently unveiled its Connected Mobility Concept car that could solve that.

The car itself looks beautiful, but one of the car’s cooler features is the fact that it comes with a longboard that’s hidden in the rear bumper of the vehicle. As you can see in the photos, this allows the driver to opt to either drive the car or hop onto the longboard for a more environmentally-friend (and not to mention fun) ride.

The goal here is that the car’s navigation system is smart enough where it can calculate where you are and whether or not you’d be better off driving to your destination, or hopping onto the longboard. It will even tell you where you can park your car to begin your longboard journey. The longboard itself is also a work of art and is made from aluminum and carbon fiber.

It also comes with a handlebar so you can ride it like a scooter if that’s your thing. It is electric-powered so you won’t have to push yourself the whole time, and it is estimated to last 7 miles on a single charge and can go up to speeds of 18 miles per hour. If you are wondering why this sounds familiar, it is because Ford unveiled something similar earlier this year with the Ford MoDe:Me eBike.

That being said, this is only a concept and we have no idea when Audi will be bringing this to the market, or how much it will cost, but we know we want one!
