While we were celebrating Independence day, Audi put the production-ready e-tron on stage. The Royal Danish Playhouse in Copenhagen was the setting and the press release shows us the interior for the first time. While the exterior is still wrapped in e-tron specific camouflage, their first electric car is loaded with luxury.
Two 7″ OLED screens are the centerpiece of the Audi Virtual Cockpit. It uses HD cameras instead of side mirrors, and they work with front and rear ones to create a 360-degree view to help with parking and safe maneuvering. Three views are available: highway, turning, and parking. Entertainment is handled by 16 Bang & Olufsen speaker that are sound-staged for a proper 3D audio effect. The center console also incorporates mood lighting, and it has open sidewalls between the driver and passenger seats.
Speaking of the seats, they are weather refined Valcona hides with contrast stitching and piping. The entire body shell arrives loaded with insulation that is tuned to eliminate any sounds of the electric driveline. With a wheelbase of 9.6 feet, it will be a smooth & capable family hauler. Hopefully, it will incorporate the 800v fast-charge feature that Porsche is placing at all their dealers, so as soon as we have more info you will see it here first.
