The most noticeable changes can be seen at the front of the vehicle, where the grille and bumper have been redesigned. The rear of the EVs has also received some attention, with revised taillights and a new diffuser. However, perhaps the most significant change can be found under the skin.

Technical specifications haven’t been revealed yet, but we know that both cars will be offered optional all-wheel steering. The interior gets a new 10.1-inch touchscreen display for the infotainment system and an available 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster. There’s also a new shifter for the eight-speed automatic transmission. As for charging, Audi says that both cars can be charged from 10-80% in just 30 minutes using 150kW fast chargers.
