Audi Teases Q6 Electric Vehicle

by SpeedLux

If you once happened to hear that Audi, a German-based luxury automaker, was prepping an all-electric vehicle, the rumor is starting to take shape into reality. The automaker in question has just decided to release an official teaser image, depicting what will be the company’s all-electric SUV model. The image of the vehicle was teased during an annual press conference held by the luxury German automotive brand.

From the computer-rendered teaser image, it can be predicted that the upcoming Q6 from Audi is going to compete head to head against the likes of the Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe as well as the BMW X6. This new vehicle model from Audi is most likely to pack a machine similar to that of the company’s R8 e-tron under the hood. According to reports, the engine will take the vehicle to a distance no less than 293 km before it will require a recharge. Utilizing the MLB chassis which Audi uses on its Q7 as well, this new vehicle will count on a battery pack with a total capacity of 100 kWh.

Judging by the teaser image, it seems that the new EV from the German company is going to borrow a lot of styling cues from the Audi Prologue concept. The latter was unveiled at this year’s Geneva Motor Show event not so long ago. This has also been confirmed by the R&D boss at the company, Ulrich Hackenberg. Unfortunately, as reported by the Autocar, the car is not quite likely to arrive at least until the oncoming 2017.

At the aforementioned annual press conference held by the company, it has also been reconfirmed that Audi is going to produce the Q8, which is going to be its next flagship model in the SUV market segment. Hackenberg also points out that the Audi Q8 is going to feature a visual design that looks sportier and more aggressive when compared to the Audi Q7. He also adds that whereas the Q7 is designed to accommodate seven people without compromising comfort, the Q8 will be more like a coupe in nature.
