Audi confirms reveal of Q6 e-tron electric SUV at Frankfurt motor show next month

After several rumours, Audi has released official confirmation of plans to build its Q6 e-tron electric SUV. Audi will be revealing the all-electric concept SUV at next month’s Frankfurt motor show.

The model, which has a range of 310 miles, will be the brand’s first large-series electric car and is due to enter production in 2018.

The size of the new model will be between that of the Audi Q5 and the Q7. The model has a typical SUV body and flat coupe-like cabin giving the concept a very dynamic appearance. The interior is spacious and offers room for four people.


Energy for the electric motor will be drawn from a lithium-ion battery mounted low in the car’s platform, which is a mix of hot-formed steel, aluminium and carbon fibre-reinforced plastic. Audi says mounting the battery low within the car "provides for a low centre of gravity and balances axle load distribution. And that gives the car better driving dynamics and driving safety than other vehicles in the segment."

Three electric motors – one on the front axle and two on the rear – effectively create an ‘electrified quattro’, making the e-tron quattro concept both highly efficient and responsive.
Audi has also announced that it will debut new Matrix Organic Light Emitting Diode (OLED) lighting technology on the concept. The lights, which are continuously variable and require no reflectors or guides, will eventually be used in Audi's production models across the range.

Audi CEO Rupert Stadler has previously opened up about the zero-emissions SUV, believed to be badged Q6, claiming it will be “sexy,” “packed with utility” and “sporty.” He also confirmed it will arrive by 2018 – to coincide with big developments in the charging infrastructure.
