2024 Audi Q8 features Atala automotive lighting by OLEDWorks

OLEDWorks announced that its Atala organic light emitting diode (OLED) technology is included in the exterior lighting of the upgraded Audi Q8 luxury SUV. The Q family’s flagship model offers Audi customers an expanded light offering that, for the first time, includes digital OLEDs on the right and left side of the vehicle’s rear lights.

A total of six panels—each less than one millimetre thick—span the rear of the car. One panel occupies each of the left and right bodyside lamps, and four panels span the continuous inner tailgate lamp. Every panel contains six high-contrast segments that are individually addressable via software control.

Striking and impressive design

“OLEDWorks is proud to contribute its Atala lighting to the evolution of the Audi Q8. We applaud Audi’s flawless execution as reflected in the Q8’s striking and impressive design,” said David DeJoy, CEO of OLEDWorks.

The optional digital OLED rear lights with OLED panels also feature four digital light signatures, which include different dynamic welcome and leaving home lighting scenarios. Furthermore, the proximity indication illuminates all OLED segments when another vehicle is two metres away from a stopped Q8, which increases road safety.

Individualisation functions

“It was a pleasure working with OLEDWorks to illuminate Audi’s vision for industry-leading lighting technology in the upgraded Q8. These digital OLED rear lights, with four selectable designs, contribute to the overall individualisation functions available to our customers and to the Q8’s expressive design that ensures high recognition value for our flagship SUV range,” underlined Dr Werner Thomas, Project Manager OLED-Lighting at AUDI AG.

The upgraded Audi Q8 is the second Audi model to feature first-generation Atala OLED technology, following the release of the enhanced Audi A8 with digital OLED technology as a standard feature. Crafted with industry insights, flexible and adaptable Atala OLEDs are reported to provide unmatched clarity, brightness, and uniformity to enhance any automotive illumination programme.
