Audi Skysphere Interior Layout
With the capability of Level 4 autonomous driving, the interior becomes an interactive space and seamless digital ecosystem.
Control elements such as the steering wheel and pedals can be swivelled into an invisible position and thereby completely removed from the interior.
Seats are upholstered in sustainably produced microfiber fabric and, thanks to their variable position in the interior, offer the kind of freedom to move and legroom that can otherwise only be experienced when flying first class on an aeroplane. Headrests are fixed to the body that aligns its position with the Seat slide position. Traditional Seat architectures would need to do away to integrate to such styling definition.
