The inside is otherwise as posh as you’d expect from a modern Audi, with soft surfaces everywhere, plenty of optional illumination and a 705W, 16-speaker Bang & Olufsen audio system There is a clever touch in the driving mode selector, though R12; the “gear” lever doubles as a hand rest.

Don’t expect to see much more of the car for a while. Audi delayed the e-tron’s unveiling following the arrest of its CEO over the Dieselgate emissions cheating scandal, so you may not get a complete picture of what it’ll be like on the road until the company has a new launch event ready. Think of this as a peace offering to make up for the setback.
