When it makes its debut later this year, the electric crossover Audi Q6 E-Tron will usher in a new era for the brand’s interiors.


After previewing the outside of the Q6 E-Tron in July, Audi revealed the interior of the vehicle on Sunday, giving consumers a sneak peek at what’s to come. Following current industry trends, a curved panel houses both the 14.9-inch infotainment touchscreen and the 14.5-inch electronic instrument cluster side by side, giving the impression of a single, enormous screen. The front passenger has a 10.9-inch display screen with a media player and a “electronic blind” to prevent driver distraction.

The screens run a brand-new infotainment system based on Android developed by Cariad, the software section of Audi’s parent company, the Volkswagen Group, with its own app store. According to Audi, it has a voice assistant that is equipped to comprehend human activities and provide ideas.

A head-up display has augmented-truth features that display data and facts including speed, traffic signs, and navigational guidance. Photos that are shown appear to be floating up to 656 feet in front of the car and to interact with their environment.

Additionally, the Q6 E-Tron will feature a lightbar that runs along the bottom of the windscreen. It can sign data like charging standing and is known as the Conversation Light-weight, or IAL, and it functions very similarly to an ID.In Volkswagen EVs, the bar is lightweight.

Audi offered some eco-friendly materials, including recycled polyester, but there will also be more traditional materials like wood and leather. Additionally, a 22-speaker Bang & Olufsen audio system with four speakers built into the headrests of the front seats will be available. Audi’s claims can give the impression that a person is in a zone reserved for passengers.

The Premium System Electrical (PPE) platform, which Porsche and Audi jointly developed, serves as the foundation for the Q6 E-Tron and the next Macan Electrical. The forthcoming A5 E-Tron, hinted at by the A6 E-Tron Idea, is also brand-new and operates on the same technology.

According to Audi, EVs will be able to charge from 10% to 80% in around 30 minutes or less when using the PPE and 800-volt charging. The manufacturer has also made it seem like bidirectional charging will be prioritised in these designs for emerging technologies.

The larger E-Tron, meanwhile, gets a complete makeover for 2024 that includes a rebranding as the Q8 E-Tron, sportier tuning, and a greatly increased driving range of up to 300 miles.
