Why is there no jack for hybrid??

Car has been dependable, but can't understand why they cut out the simplest of tools. This car originally came with run flats. They get flats too and when driving across Texas there are some remote areas!! Bought an extra wheel and tire for insurance, then realized the car has no jack. Unbelievable Audi!! Last flat with run flat car went 5 miles at low speed before tire was destroyed. Thanks for the help AAA!!!
