Hey All

Is remote parking a e-tron GT thing only or is it available on e-trons too? I just noticed it on a GT spec sheet. Not new for other marques I know but a first for Audi?

Driver assist systems

Aside from the maneuver assist, the (remote) park assist plus, which the driver activates at the push of a button, is one of the highlights of the “Park” assist package. It detects suitable parking spaces and can maneuver the Audi e-tron GT1 into and out of a parallel or bay parking space at the push of a button. The driver is responsible for the maneuver. They can remain inside the car or get out beforehand – in this case, they start and supervise the parking maneuver via the myAudi app. By keeping the corresponding button pressed, the e-tron GT1 will roll into the space, in multiple maneuvers if necessary. Once it has reached its final position, it switches off the drive, activates the parking lock, and locks the doors. The “City” assist package includes the following safety systems: Audi pre sense rear, side assist, exit warning, intersection assist, and rear cross-traffic assist.

All systems use the central driver assistance controller (zFAS), which uses the sensors’ data to continuously compute an exact model of the vehicle’s environment. This way, they can react precisely and promptly to objects, such as by initiating braking. Depending on the selected options, the zFAS receives the data to do this from up to five radar sensors, five visual cameras, the thermal imaging camera for the night vision assist, and 12 ultrasound sensors.

edit - just looked online and its been in the A8 for a few years and will be in the Q8

Nope. For some reason they didn't see fit to include it on the e-tron. We get massage seats but not something actually useful like that.

Nope, nothing like this on 2019 models. Parking Assist in the 2019 is really just a bunch of sensors and camera angles to help you maneuver. I'd be interested in how well this works with parallel parking on an incline. Given the way this car can free-roll in some situations, I'd wonder how well an automated parking system would work.

We have it on the other car from this century and have never used it. I would like the auto lane change that I think that we should have.
