Production of the first fully-electric Audi SUV, the e-tron, is already underway at the carmaker’s plant in Brussels, but the world still has a few more days left until the psychedelic camouflage drops off the body of the car and reveals it in all its glory.
Until the official unveiling on September 17th in San Francisco, Audi has begun releasing more and more info about the car, one drop at a time. This week’s topic: toll booths and the ordeal drivers have to pass through to travel on such roads.
In the e-tron, that ordeal has been somewhat eliminated with the first ever introduction by Audi of an Integrated Toll Module (ITM). Located inside the vehicle's rearview mirror, ITM will allow drivers to access select toll roads in the U.S. and in Canada.
The ITM will be controlled through the vehicle’s MMI and is hoped to eliminate windscreen clutter and the need to manage multiple toll accounts.
