'We're confident that when the e-tron arrives, we'll be able offer it.'

If you thought buying an Audi e-tron quattro would be sufficient for propelling you into the future of mobility, think again.

Audi is expected to offer the e-tron locally with the option of digital mirrors – the sleek and energy efficient mirrors that feature built-in high-resolution digital cameras in the place of mirrors.

While the technology has been seen on countless concept cars, Audi is one of the few manufacturers on the market with the technology available on a production car.

Speaking to CarAdvice at a recent Audi event, Audi corporate communications manager, Shaun Cleary said that Audi Australia is working through the homologation details at the moment.

"We're confident that when the e-tron arrives, we'll be able offer it," he said.

"I think it's just the final homologation of the car coming through. On that specific point, we're pretty confident we'll be okay."

The technology works by projecting an image from a high-definition camera on to a screen mounted high within the driver and front passenger's door.

The position, focus and clarity can then be adjusted using the touchscreen attached to the monitor with the main benefit of the system most obvious at night time.

Fingers crossed it makes it across the line. It's this type of technology that breaks the barrier for future car technology and more elements of concept cars making it into production.

While this technology is new for wing mirrors, vehicles like the Infiniti QX80 large SUV already use a digital rear view mirror in place of a regular mirror.

After originally being scheduled for a launch later in 2019, the Audi e-tron quattro has been pushed back to a 2020 arrival Down Under, due to production constraints as a result of the new WLTP emissions regulations in Europe.
