Audi Q6 e-tron Spied Testing

Audi is preparing another electric SUV

  • The Q6 e-tron will slot between the Q4 e-tron and the e-tron

  • It will share its platform with the upcoming Porsche Macan EV

  • It should arrive in North America for the 2023 model year

Audi is planning to add another electric crossover to its stable in the next few years. The Q6 e-tron has been spied testing on a number of occasions.

Since Audi wants to electrify its whole lineup, many new EV’s are expected from the brand in the current decade.

The next to reach North America is likely to be the Q6 e-tron, a midsize SUV that will slot between the new Q4 e-tron and the larger e-tron SUV.

Full details aren’t available yet, but we know it will share its platform with the upcoming Porsche Macan EV and it is likely to receive a RWD powertrain on the base model and an optional AWD system, in keeping with Audi’s traditional Quattro all-wheel drive.

An RS version could also be on the menu and it should offer around 590 horsepower. Range figures are not known yet but they should be over 500 kilometers (310 miles) according to the WLTP cycle, which is often less accurate than the EPA ratings.

As with most other Audi SUVs, the Q6 e-tron will be offered in two body styles, a regular SUV and a coupe-like SUV that features a lower roofline in order to have a more aggressive and sportier look.

The Q6 e-tron is expected to arrive in North America at the end of 2022, as a 2023 model year vehicle.
