Audi has taken the stage at the Munich Motor Show to provide a sneak peek into the interior of its forthcoming Q6 e-tron. Building upon previous revelations regarding the crossover's powertrain and exterior design, Audi has now offered an in-depth look at the technology-rich cabin that awaits future owners.
At the heart of this high-tech interior is a panoramic display system. Comprising an 11.9-inch digital instrument cluster and a substantial 14.5-inch infotainment screen, this setup is powered by Android Automotive. Beyond the basic functionalities, the infotainment system includes an app store and a digital assistant, represented by an avatar.
Audi's digital assistant goes a step further, continuously learning from the driver's behavior to provide personalized and proactive suggestions. For instance, it can intuitively activate heated seats when temperatures dip below 50° F (10° C), ensuring optimal comfort during chilly weather.
Furthermore, customers can opt for a 10.9-inch front passenger display equipped with innovative shutter technology. This feature allows the passenger to enjoy movies and entertainment without causing any distraction to the driver.
In line with the tech-savvy theme, the Q6 e-tron offers an augmented reality head-up display. This cutting-edge feature projects information, including directions, up to 656 feet (200 meters) in front of the vehicle, enhancing the driver's situational awareness.
A striking interaction light bar wraps around the upper dashboard, providing visual cues for turn signals and charging status. For audiophiles, an upgrade to the Bang & Olufsen premium audio system is available, boasting an impressive 22 speakers, including four integrated into the front headrests.
While much of the cabin is conventional, featuring elements like a flat-bottom steering wheel and high-gloss black accents, Audi emphasizes sustainability with eco-friendly floor mats crafted from recycled fishing nets, carpets, and industrial waste. Buyers can also select from various trim options, including brushed aluminum, birch, or sweetgum.
The S Line variant offers a distinctive touch with recycled Elastic Melange fabric, though Dinamica microfiber is also an option. For those seeking a technical and aesthetic blend, anthracite aluminum trim or anthracite mesh trim, described as having a “technical-looking polyester fabric with a haptic structure,” are available.
Cargo space is generous, with 18.6 cubic feet (526 liters) behind the rear seats. Folding down the rear seats expands this to 54 cubic feet (1,529 liters), while an additional 2.3 cubic feet (64 liters) of storage is found in the frunk. Audi's Q6 e-tron impresses not only with its electric powertrain but also with a forward-thinking and technology-packed interior, promising an exciting driving experience for the future.
