Audi presented at CES its outlook on future interior design for HMI, connectivity and infotainment using the all-electric e-tron quattro concept as an example.

The electric SUV was unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September with expected 300 miles / 500 km range (see details). Production of this model has been confirmed and is scheduled for 2018.

The production version is to be virtually unchanged so it’s doubly important to check out the infotainment of the concept. Similar interior features can be spotted in the hydrogen fuel cell version – Audi h-tron quattro concept unveiled at NAIAS.

According to Audi, they will stick to OLED technology for all their displays. Of course, Audi switches to touchscreens too – two in the middle console.

Here are a bunch of new images presenting how it looks:

    Following Tesla’a lead by getting rid of buttons…looks good. Their next generation interior will probably do something innovative like combine the two small center displays into one large one that is slightly angled toward the driver.

      Getting rid of buttons is nice design wise but question is: does it (yes or no) means you need to look at a screen rather than at the road in front of you while driving while activating some functions ? If yes it is OK only if car is equiped with a fool proof system that will stop the car for you if a 5 year old zip accross the street just in front of you in a residential area. Otherwise it is yet another example of reverse progress as buttons work fine.

        Muscle memory.

        +1 touch screens are terrible. Muscle memory is for knobs. I’m waiting for the ‘I dream of Genie’ knod.

      3. Acevolt says:

        For the Model S, key functions are on the steering wheel as buttons and everything else is easily selected on the touch screen instead of the sea of buttons found on most cars. I always compare current cars random buttons placement to that of a Blackberry as apposed to the clean design and usefulness of an iPhone. The ergonomics of my Mercedes is a mess compared to my MS. Of course, some people miss the old Blackberries.

        +1

        Knobs and real buttons will be back after this touch screen fad loses its novelty and goes away. Or maybe cheap cars will have touch screens and panels and more expensive models will have real knobs and buttons as a little touch of luxury.

  2. Someone out there says:

    Looks better than Tesla I think, although not by much. It’s still the cheap plastic look but the screens are more integrated in this design compared to Tesla’s “just slap a big tablet over it” design. Sure, the Tesla tablet is probably very practical but it doesn’t look good.

    I’ve got 49000 miles in a Model S. My one and only complaint with the car is non-tactile buttons. Just changing the cabin temperature can be dangerous. Very few controls are easily done from the steering wheel.
