Like all luxury-class models from Audi, the Q8 e-tron also uses the MMI touch response operating system. Its two large, high-resolution displays - the upper one with a diagonal of 10.1 inches, the lower one with 8.6 inches - replace almost all conventional switches and controls. Operation is fast and safe: when the finger activates a function, it triggers a haptic and acoustic click as confirmation. In addition to operation via the two touch displays, many functions can be activated with natural voice control. The digital display and operating concept in the Audi Q8 e-tron is completed by the standard Audi virtual cockpit with full HD resolution. The specific graphics display all important aspects of electric driving, from charging power to range. A head-up display complements the displays as an option. The Audi Q8 e-tron offers extensive infotainment and is comprehensively networked. On the German market, the Audi Q8 e-tron is equipped with MMI navigation plus as standard. The media center supports the fast LTE Advanced data transmission standard and integrates a WLAN hotspot for passengers' mobile devices. The navigation makes intelligent destination suggestions based on previously driven routes. Car-to-X services are also part of the Audi connect navigation and infotainment package. For them, the Audi Q8 e-tron uses the fleet's swarm intelligence.
