Do you like the idea of renting a new Audi? Do you live in the San Francisco Bay area? If so, Audi is beta testing a pilot program that will allow you to experience one of their new cars without a purchase agreement. In a press release dated April 27, Audi formally announced a pilot program for iOS users that will allow them to match specific vehicles to their needs: Audi On Demand.
This is the second innovative pilot program to come from Audi recently; on April 22, they announced a delivery program through a collaboration with DHL Parcel and Amazon. Through this program, your Audi vehicle can be selected as a delivery location for online orders, and drivers will be granted temporary access to your trunk to deliver packages wherever you’re parked.
Audi On Demand is a new and unique way to expose potential buyers to the brand and allow for more than a simple test drive. Audi builds highly technical vehicles with features that are not always fun to explain on paper. Truly, the best way to experience a Quattro in person is to spend time behind the wheel.
To access one of these Audis, all you need to do is download the app from the Apple App Store and select your vehicle. Daily pricing ranges from $440 a day for the RS5, to $1,295 a day for the R8 Spyder. Once you’ve selected and ordered your vehicle, a concierge will deliver it to you, then come pick it up when you are finished.
Cruise Fisherman’s Warf in a V10 R8, or head down to Monterey in an S7, the choice is yours. Yes, the RS models are included in the portfolio, along with the new A3 Sportback e-tron ®. This represents a game changer in the luxury car market, and we can only hope the program is expanded across the US.
