Video shows Audi's e-tron quattro's OLED displays

We just posted on Audi's latest concept electric crossover, the e-tron quattro, with its OLED displays (and lighting panels). This nice video from Slashgear shows the cars interior - with its many OLED displays (all displays in this new Audi are OLEDs).

Mark Lichte, Audi's chief of design gives a nice tour of the car - and it turns out that this concept has no mirrors - but instead it uses cameras and triangular-shaped OLEDs integrated into the side of the cars. A rather similar idea (a digital internal rear-view mirror) was adopted by Audi back in 2012 in the R18 race car, and was later demonstrated by Continental in July 2015.

Interestingly, Mark says that from 2017 all new Audi models will use the flexible-OLED based center console, which was first unveiled in the Audi Prologue concept. That specific display prototype in the Prologue was 8.9 x 5.6 inch in size and featured a resolution of 2560x1600 (287 PPI). That prototype was produced by Samsung Display.
