The prestige German manufacturer has launched a new electric car, and the renowned audio brand Sonos is taking care of the sound system.
Audi has launched a new line of electric cars with the Q4 E-Tron and is offering three new cars with impressive specifications, including the ability to accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h in just 6.2 seconds. But most of the attention has been focused on the inside of the car, not the inside of its engine: it will be the first vehicle to feature Sonos sound thanks to an official partnership with the Sonos brand.
The partnership is designed to ensure first-class sound when listening to music in the car while on the move. Commenting on the matter, Sonos CEO Patrick Spence said, “Our goal is to be the world’s leading sound experience company. That means giving listeners the opportunity to experience great sound anywhere. In Audi, we have found a partner who shares our vision and approach – a company that values innovation and design as much as Sonos does. We are proud to be able to present this Sonos-coordinated premium sound experience in the cabin of the Q4 e-tron today. ”Future Audi models will also offer Sonos sound, including the A1, Q2 and Q4 series.
This isn’t the first premium audio partnership announced in the past few weeks; Dolby has introduced a “surreal sound” system that will be built into the upcoming Lucid Air luxury electric vehicle. These two announcements could mark the first wave of a new trend in premium in-car audio installations, and we are excited to see what future innovations could be implemented to improve on-the-go entertainment.
In addition to the improvements to the sound system, the Audio Q4 e-tron will also have an Augmented Reality Head-Up Display, which can show a 70-inch projection in the driver’s field of vision, in order to display navigation information including arrows for the next turn or the estimated display display the distance to the vehicle in front.
