The Q5 e-tron is the Volkswagen ID.6’s twin.
It is likely that the Q5 e-tron will be limited to the Chinese market.
Images come from China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology.
China remains at the forefront as an EV-hungry market by volume. This explains why many automakers are focusing heavily on the country with new models. The latest is the 2022 Audi Q5 e-tron and images have leaked well ahead of its official introduction.
As per the norm, automakers must submit images of new vehicles to China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, which is where the pictures come from. Based on the specifications, according to insideevs, the Q5 e-tron’s wheelbase and overall length are identical to that of the recently-introduced Volkswagen ID.6. Both electric China-only SUVs are assembled on VW’s MEB platform.
The leaked Q5 e-tron images reveal a design that is similar in many ways to the Q4 e-tron as well as hint at powertrain options. One is the 35 e-tron meaning that a single rear-mounted electric motor with 177 horsepower will be available. It is highly likely that a dual-motor iteration will also be offered, this time with over 300 horsepower.
Both the Volkswagen ID.6 and Audi Q5 e-tron are not planned for the North American markets.
