Audi has unveiled the latest iteration of the Activesphere concept cars for 2023. The new Activesphere EV concept can transform from a crossover into a pickup truck when required. After the Skysphere, Urbanshpere, and Grandsphere, the Activesphere is the automaker's fourth concept EV. The new PPE platform, created by the Volkswagen Group for usage initially in Audi and Porsche vehicles, serves as the foundation for the Activesphere. The Audi Activesphere is 1600mm tall, 2070mm wide, and 4980mm long. The fact that its wheelbase measures 2970mm, helps to create a roomy interior. It will have 22-inch wheels that claim to provide higher traction on and off the road.

Inside the cabin, there are four individual lounge chairs. The first for Audi's concept car is the inclusion of Mixed Reality. It provides VR Glasses for the driver/passenger to see in front of them. Also, information gets projected in 3D in front of the user. When the vehicle is in autonomous mode, the steering wheel, pedals, and dashboard are concealed; they swivel out when the driver wants to take over.
