Audi R8 e-tron: First production car with digital rear-view mirror

Audi R8 e-tron

The Audi R8 e-tron will be the first production car with a digital rear-view mirror. Have a look!

The battery-powered supercar has a blacked out rear window to help boost aerodynamics, which is an all-important factor to boost range in electric cars. A camera mounted near the roof will then beam images to a screen in place of the rear-view mirror.

The 7.7-inch monitor uses an organic LED display, which is more energy efficient and thinner than a traditional LCD set-up. At night the image will dim and brighten automatically to counteract dazzling headlights.
