VIDEO: Get an Up Close Look at the Audi Q4 e-tron

The official reveal of the Audi Q4 e-tron is imminent. Not only did the brand officially release some camouflaged photos of the car but also completely showed off its interior and most of its technology. While its specs are still secret to anyone outside of Audi, the four-ringed brand is teasing the Q4 in every way that it can. One of the most recent teasers is this new video, featuring Misha Charoudin.

 

In the video, Misha speaks with Pirmin Reimeir, project manager for the Audi Q4 e-tron. They discuss a lot of the car’s tech and features, as well as its interior design. More importantly, Misha actually gets to go inside the Q4 e-tron and really check out its interior features.

 

Inside, the Audi Q4 e-tron is more spacious than it looks, even in the back seat where its sloping roofline looks as if it’d impeded headroom but doesn’t. Up front, average height drivers will find several inches of headroom and a spacious, welcoming cabin.

 

The touchscreen MMI system is present but it’s also the largest ever fitted to an Audi product, at 11.6 inches. We don’t know if it has an upgraded processor over previous models but it seems a bit quicker to respond than we remember. It also gets physical climate controls, which are very welcome. However, it most exciting new tech is the augmented reality head-up display.

 

This video also gives us a taste of that AR head-up display, as Misha actually get a chance to drive the new Q4 e-tron. In the brief clip, we can see that the AR tech shows arrows on the road ahead in the head-up display, showing you where to go. It can also mark lanes when it sees that you’re veering too far to one side and it can even track the car ahead of you, while using adaptive cruise control. It’s very slick and will be a lot of fun to use.

 

Mostly, though, we’re just jealous that Misha that the chance to drive it, as we’re extremely curious as to what it’s like to actually drive. We’ll seen soon enough, though, as the Audi Q4 e-tron makes its official debut sometime in April.
