Audi has introduced the hummingbird as a metaphor for the new Audi A6 Avant’s ultra-lightweight construction, symbolising agile and efficient performance. In the commercial released in the UK a metal-framed hummingbird flies nimbly through a surreal landscape populated with trees, flowers and fauna made from petrol pumps, road signs and traffic cones. The metal-framed bird boasts design elements that echo the A6 Avant, right down to its breast, which replicates the distinctive Audi grille.
