In the MIB 3-equipped models, ChatGPT will able to answer general knowledge questions, building on an existing voice-recognition system for in-vehicle functions like infotainment, navigation, and climate control.

In the Q6 E-Tron and other forthcoming models, ChatGPT will act as an extension of an Audi-developed voice assistant, activated with the prompt “Hey Audi” or via a push-to-talk button. This voice assistant can already control vehicle functions and provide some information like weather forecasts. The system will only ask ChatGPT general knowledge questions it can’t answer on its own.

Audi sees other future possibilities, such as allowing ChatGPT to answer questions about the vehicle, such as tire-pressure settings. Outside the car, Audi also aims to use AI software for quality control, including checking spot welds and looking for cracks in materials during vehicle assembly.

The 2025 Volkswagen Golf GTI, from Audi’s parent brand, also adds ChatGPT as part of an updated infotainment system. As with Audi, the VW integration of ChatGPT primarily functions as an upgrade to the voice-recognition system. In 2023 Mercedes-Benz announced what it called a ChatGPT beta program, making the chatbot available in over 900,000 vehicles equipped with the Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX) infotainment system.
