Climb inside the luxurious five-seat interior and you’ll benefit from other innovations included as standard on the Q7 e-tron. Some you’ll notice straight away, like the Audi Virtual Cockpit, which lets you customise driver information displays. Others you’ll notice as you drive. Like the Predictive efficiency assistant, that uses navigational data to help you drive more efficiently. Or a revolutionary heat pump, that recycles heat from the electric motor – so you can warm up the cabin without running down the battery.
This model isn’t just about redefining the way your car works – it has adapted the way you can control it. By downloading the Audi MMI connect app, you’ll have immediate access to important information about your vehicle.
So no matter where you are, you’ll be able to keep an eye on the current charge level, remaining electric range and even the location of your car. There’s also an option to look at your last journey, which gives you key details including average fuel consumption.
Perhaps most useful of all, the app enables you to use your smartphone as a remote control. It means, whether you’re at home or in the office, you can start your car charging with the push of a button – or set a timer to do it automatically. You can even choose to activate the climate control remotely a few minutes before you start your journey using power from the mains. So you know the cabin will be at your ideal temperature when you get behind the wheel and you can draw on the battery’s full power on the road.
