Audi has two major new EVs on the horizon — the Audi A6 e-tron and the Audi Q6 e-tron. Both cars will be built on the all-new PPE (Premium Platform Electric) architecture that Audi and Porsche will share, but the A6 e-tron will be a sedan and the Q6 e-tron an SUV. The latter of which was just caught doing some testing in the snow. (We don’t own the photos but you can see them here)
In these photos, we get to see the heavily camouflaged Audi Q6 e-tron testing but we can’t make out many details. Its overall silhouette is sleeker and sportier than the standard e-tron and it seems to be a bit smaller, too. Judging by its shape, it seems Audi wants the Q6 e-tron to be a bit sportier than its standard SUVs.
Details are hard to come by in these photos, though, as the test mule is wrapped in too heavy of camouflage to make any details out. However, we can see that it will get new, slimmer headlights and most likely a large “grille”. The taillights that can be seen in these spy photos are most likely fake, designed to throw off any onlookers.
While Audi’s been mum on any official info about the Q6 e-tron, we can safely assume that the top-end model will share specs with the A6 e-tron Concept. That would give it two electric motors that will combine for around 469 horsepower and 590 lb-ft of torque. It will also get between 300-400 miles of range and support 350 kW charging speed, as all PPE-based vehicles will.
Audi hasn’t even released a concept version of the Q6 e-tron yet, so expect to see the A6 e-tron release first. However, the Audi Q6 e-tron will likely be the more important car, as SUVs are always better sellers than sedans, especially in America.
There isn’t any more info on the Audi Q6 e-tron but we’re going to keep you updated with any more info as we get it.
