Head of design for the Audi Loft in Malibu - where the Audi PB18 e-tron was born - Gael Buzyn said, "We want to offer an experience that is only available in racing cars like the Audi R18. However, our goal is to provide comfort for everyday use, not only for drivers, but also for passengers." That's why we develop an interior for the ideal driver position in the middle," he said furthermore as quoted from Audi-mediacenter.
