leaked volkswagen might show this full tft display infotainment system at ces

Volkswagen announced Friday it would show off “developments in electromobility as well as the next generation of connectivity” at the Consumer Electronics Show next month in Las Vegas.

“For instance, Volkswagen will give quite a clear glimpse of the latest developments in in-car infotainment that are on the verge of being launched onto the market. This will see innovations such as the Golf R Touch concept car finding their way into Volkswagen’s broad product portfolio,” the automaker said in a statement.

That’s probably possibly what we’re looking at here in a B-roll video made by the automaker obtained by TTAC through less-than-official channels.

Pictures from the video give us a pretty good idea of what we’re looking at here. You can watch the video below to see it in action yourself.

A full TFT display for the driver, a feature that’s never been offered before on the Volkswagen Golf, and an updated infotainment system certainly could be what the automaker is talking about when it mentions technology “on the verge of being launched onto the market.”

In addition to the updated TFT display and infotainment unit, there appears to be a wireless charging mat in the center console.

We’ll have to wait until CES to see what else Volkswagen has to show us.

    It should have an option for real-time emissions data. We could begin to trust if we could verify. Now when that video jukebox goes belly-up, how much will a replacement unit cost? And, will the car run only with the original set-up, like the VWs that required the original radio to remain installed?

    Without major driver-assist features, most of this interactivity will need to be disabled when the vehicle is in motion. Someone needs to be doing the paying attention and driving bit.

      @VCplayer One way would be to enable the more distracting features by detecting the presence of a passenger. They could also detect how distracted, drowsy or impaired the driver is. They could incorporate voice command for navi and other functions. It won't be simple, but they will need to figure out what makes sense and isn't annoying to the driver either.

  • Zipper69 It worked in London, because the center of that city is a medieval layout ON TOP of a Roman layout, both designed for horse drawn traffic.Manhattan's grid and the available public transport options are a different matter.
  • Jkross22 To give a sense of priorities, Oakland has had a 50% jump in car thefts from last year. 40 cars per day are stolen in Oakland. Also in Oakland.... the city has a shortage of 911 operators so if/when you call, you're SOL. That is because they are saying no one is applying to the open 911 jobs. When an audit was recently done, over 1000 applicants applied to the 911 jobs, but no one had contacted them. Any of them. HR still earns the term "human remains". After Xi Xingpeng returned to China from his SF visit, all of the homeless people returned to the streets of San Francisco. They were all magically whisked away for his visit, something our governor was quite proud of doing. Makes you wonder why SF residents can't get that kind of treatment everyday. With all of the big problems solved, CA reps can focus on the real problems in the state.... making those MAGA rural volleyball team buses go all electric no matter whether EV buses make sense or not. And this guy wants to be president.....
  • Kjhkjlhkjhkljh kljhjkhjklhkjh Dear whiny people .. keep a small number of diesel busses. replace the rest .. my god people like sticking poles in their own bike spokes...
  • Canam23 I moved to Los Angeles in 1968 and the air was barely breathable. Thanks to the mandating of pollution controls and the work of the Air Quality Management District, it's 100% better today. When the first pollution targets were set in the 70's, Detroit moaned that it would be impossible to achieve, meanwhile the Japanese sat down and figured out how to do it. As a result of the constant strengthening of the anti pollution laws, our air is much less dangerous for our children. Furthermore, engineering has now created very clean, powerful and efficient engines. So Stellantis, I'm not buying it.
  • Random1 So several of the interboro crossings are cheap: Brooklyn bridge, Manhattan bridge, Madison Ave, Willis/3rd Ave. One or two others I think.$18 is weirdly cheap, but "early bird" all-day parking is easily under $25 at many, if not most, places. That garage is actually on 62nd St, so I might be able to still drive in post-congestion, but I can't imagine they won't jack up that rate when the time comes, they're gonna be over run.
