Audi has revealed the interior design of the upcoming Q4 E-Tron electric car, which includes new technologies for Audi cars.

Audi for the first time on Tuesday is focusing on a new augmented reality screen in front of the driver, which offers a wider field of view as well as more accurate and advanced animation.

Here are some examples of apps from Audi:

  •     The augmented reality system places a red line on lane markings to warn the driver if the driver is driving too far to the side.
  •     When using adaptive cruise control, animations follow the vehicle ahead.
  •     Navigate step-by-step by placing the light blue arrow in the driver's field of vision.

According to Audi, the new augmented reality system will extract more than 1,000 signals from sensors during the entire electronic warfare in the fourth quarter. Even while driving on uneven roads, it can accurately recognize the positioning and position of augmented reality elements.

The Q4 E-Tron also has (optional) the largest touch screen Audi has installed in one of its cars, with an 11.6-inch diagonal and a 10.25-inch screen behind the wheel.

Audi replaced the physical steering wheel buttons in the Q4 E-Tron with backlit touch buttons.

There are haptic feedback to simulate the feeling of a button press and haptic feedback can be swiped to navigate menus on the driver's screen.

The German luxury carmaker also showed off a camouflaged version of the exterior design of the Q4 E-Tron, which will be fully released in April, and has released other major specs for the car.

The Q4 E-Tron is the third model in the all-electric Audi series. However, it will be the first product to be based on the modular MEB platform from Volkswagen's parent company.

The platform supports Volkswagen ID electric vehicle group and the upcoming Q4 E-Tron Sportback Edition.

Audi said Tuesday that the Q4 E-Tron will be 4.59 meters long, 1,865 meters wide and 1,613 meters high, making it the largest of the compact SUV segment.

Although Audi has not released a mileage estimate since the Q4 E-Tron Concept launched in 2019, the smaller size and use of the MEB platform could mean the car is not as heavy as the original E-Tron.

According to Audi, the wheelbase of the fourth generation E-Tron is comparable to that of a mid-size SUV, while the interior is the same as that of a full-size SUV. MEB platform that makes up the chassis.

Audi sold around 47,000 electric vehicles via the E-Tron SUV and E-Tron Sportback in 2020, which is roughly 3% of the company's total sales.
