Audi has released official images of the interior for their upcoming Q6 e-tron, showcasing a primarily digitalized cabin, inclusive of a front passenger screen and an AI-powered vocal assistant.
Earlier this summer, the automotive world was abuzz with the first glimpses of the exterior of the Audi Q6 e-tron, intriguingly cloaked in camouflage. This model stands as a significant milestone for Audi, as it’s the first to be constructed on the groundbreaking Premium Platform Electric (PPE) architecture, a joint development with Porsche. Furthermore, the Q6 e-tron becomes the pioneer in integrating the E3 electronic architecture for its core systems.
The Ingolstadt-based automaker now gives enthusiasts a closer look at their next-generation electric SUV. As anticipated, the interior exudes digital luxury, anchored by a sweeping screen that extends from the driver’s side to the dashboard’s center.
Audi emphasizes that the new model’s interior is meticulously crafted to optimize ergonomics. The digital Audi Virtual Cockpit spans an impressive 11.9 inches, complemented by a 14.5-inch central multimedia screen endowed with OLED technology.
But that’s not all. Front passengers are treated to a dedicated 10.9-inch screen, allowing them to enjoy movies without diverting the driver’s attention. Enhancing the high-tech ambiance, the Q6 e-tron will optionally feature a heads-up display with augmented reality. Additionally, the multimedia system runs on Android, and the new electric SUV introduces the Interaction Light ambient lighting system, which displays three distinct functions based on ambient light color: vehicle status, safety (dynamic signaling lights are also visualized inside), and battery charge level.
Moreover, the Q6 e-tron is set to impress with an AI-based vocal assistant. Over time, this assistant adapts to the driver’s communication style, represented by an avatar displayed on the central screen. The center console boasts a wireless charging pad for smartphones and two physical charging ports. The absence of a central tunnel means more legroom for rear passengers. Storage-wise, the boot offers a 526-liter capacity, expandable to 1529 liters with the seats folded, while a front trunk provides an additional 65 liters.
Environmentally-conscious materials have not been overlooked. The Q6 e-tron interior boasts Dinamica microfiber elements, stretch blend fabric, and econil. Of course, traditional materials, such as Nappa leather, birch wood embellishments, and aluminum, add a touch of classic luxury.
The eagerly awaited Audi Q6 e-tron is set for its official debut in 2024.
