Two weeks ago my colleague Mario you stepped forward the first teasers of the upcoming Q8 Audi E-tron Concept. The great future SUV coupé of the signing of the four rings will make his official debut tomorrow at the Auto Show in Detroit. However the, luxury brand of the Volkswagen Group, wants to heat the atmosphere so that fans and the media are excited with what we can present when on stage to withdraw the sheet covering the body of the model.
So they have uploaded the video which you can see below on its official television channel. In the Audi Media TV we have found this document graphic in which we can observe some exterior details of how this large SUV. He takes prominence its footpegs with the quattro logo engraved, its large alloy wheels, headlights with Adaptive lighting technology (both front and rear), their new multifunction steering wheel with button for starting the car from there and part of which will be its instrument panel.
In addition to all these details also we can see a very curious element. In United States many Ford models incorporated into the B-pillar of the car a small keyboard (alphanumeric) so, if the key is lost, the owners can Insert a code (such as the mobile pin) to unlock the doors and with it access to the interior of the vehicle.
Because Audi wanted to use a system similar to the Ford but instead of flush mounting a traditional keyboard in the B-pillar of the Audi Q8 E-tron Concept have decided to replace it with a fingerprint reader. With this system the driver be able to open your car without the need for keys and is obviously much more secure (fingerprints are unique and difficult-to-copy) than any other type of access by sophisticated to be.
Other differences in this system that we now know is that it allows car can dispense with handles for the opening of the doors and the improvement in terms of aerodynamics is therefore considerable.
Few more things we can say about this model, maybe until tomorrow that is submitted in an official way everything is speculation. What we do know is that Audi wants to have this car in the market for the year 2019 in order to fight against the all powerful BMW X 6 and Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe.
