The video also features the Audi e-tron SUV, the brand’s first all-electric vehicle, unveiled in the U.S. last fall.
When Captain Marvel returns to Earth after years away, a government agent recaps all she’s missed, including advances in the war on gluten, technology and the formation of the Avengers. In her efforts to embrace the future, Captain Marvel is introduced to the all-new Audi e-tron SUV and takes it for a spin – where the agent notes: “Speed limits are still a thing.”
