OLEDWorks confirms it is supplying the OLED lighting panels for Audi's 2024 Q8 SUV

In 2023, Audi unveiled the 2024 Q8 and SQ8 SUVs, which sports optional OLED taillights, similar to the ones used in the 2022 Audi A8. We assumed that the OLED panels were supplied OLEDWorks, and the company indeed formally confirmed that the 2024 A8 uses its Atala OLED technology.

The Q8 uses Audi's first-gen design, as it was in the 2022 A8. A total of six panels—each less than one millimeter thick—span the rear of the car. One panel occupies each of the left and right bodyside lamps, and four panels span the continuous inner tailgate lamp. Every panel contains six high-contrast segments that are individually addressable via software control.


The optional digital OLED rear lights with OLED panels also feature four digital light signatures, which include different dynamic welcome and leaving home lighting scenarios. Furthermore, the proximity indication illuminates all OLED segments when another vehicle is two meters (6.6 feet) away from a stopped Q8, which increases road safety.

Audi recently announced that the 2024 Audi Q6 e-tron will be equipped with its its second-gen OLED taillight technology, with 360 individual OLED panels built into 6 different lighting panels. The Q6 e-tron will also sport an AMOLED display in the dashboard.
