No doubts, the interior design of the new Audi E-Tron Sportback won't leave anyone indifferent. These shapes look nice and stylish. However, the main thing that attracts me the most is all these displays around the front panel. I saw the same idea of making two separate screens for infotainment and climate control in Range Rover Velar. It also seems like passenger has a personal digital panel with climate settings, which I like too. Not sure about those buttons on the steering wheel if it touchscreen or not. Overall, digital components in the first row are making me want this car even more!
The only thing that interests me the most is what software will they use in there. Will we see Apple CarPlay or something else?

I remember seeing a lot of this dash layout in the new Audi R8 which says a lot for what we might get come time for production. One thing for sure is they will have to live up to what brands like Jaguar have done to the upcoming I-Pace. Although its a prototype it was made to best represent a production model.

I believe the new Volvo XC60 has a dual screen infotainment screen as well, it seems it's becoming more commonplace among luxury cars. I really like the steering wheel as well as it seems to have touch screens style controls, which I don't believe I've seen elsewhere. Doesn't look like there is much room for an airbag in there though. As with all concepts, there is no knowing how much will transition over to production.

Correct, they call it the RSE Mulimedia system. Fortunately for us Audi has had more tries at tech like this so thankfully most of us will be getting a far more refined and well thoughtout system compared to those into Volvo.

Audi definitely has some amazing digital cluster displays in their cars and the higher end models have ones that operate like an infotainment system, but I don't think they have the large dual screen yet.

Although they don't have it all in one enclosure, the idea of dual screens still lives on even in entry level models like the A3, see for yourself:
