Frameless windows and, flush door handles and mirrors on the digital sides, as well as an inclining roofline, improve the aerodynamic efficiency of the vehicle, improving the range and performance. For those who are wondering what the peculiarly shaped roof is all about, it’s to integrate the LiDAR sensor to create an array of driver-assist systems.
Inside, you’ll be greeted by a luxurious and modern interior that blends luxury with the latest technology. The layout is more than a hint that of Audi e-tron GT, with high-end materials and sculpted details.
