The company said it is considering equipping an electric crossover with a interior made of vegan materials, which will make the Audi e-tron even more environmentally friendly.

According to project manager Matt Mostafai, Audi received several requests for such an e-tron design. “We had several requests for this. And, of course, moving forward, we are considering new types of materials for decoration, which will be more environmentally friendly. If you remember, the e-tron GT received a completely vegan interior from recycled materials. We used fishing nets and the like, ” – said Mostafai.

Recently, many manufacturers offer buyers options of synthetic leather, which act as an alternative to the traditional finish of genuine leather.

Audi recently launched its first e-tron shipments to European customers. In 2019, it was planned to sell 55,830 electric crossovers, but subsequently plans were reduced to 45,242 Audi e-tron.
