2024 Audi Q6 E-Tron Sportback Aims To Combine Style With An Electric Powertrain
Audi recently introduced the MQB-based Q6 in China, but we’re far more interested in the upcoming Q6 e-tron and Q6 e-tron Sportback.
The latter models were recently spied undergoing testing and they’ll push Audi’s electric vehicle effort forward as they’ll ride on the all-new PPE platform, which will also underpin the electric Porsche Macan.
While both prototypes are decked out in swirly camouflage, the crossovers will adopt a curvaceous front fascia with a fully enclosed grille that is flanked by slender lighting units. Further below, there’s vertical air curtains and a sporty central intake.
Moving further back, there’s a rakish windscreen that flows into a sloping roof on the Sportback variant. The crossover also sports streamlined bodywork, pronounced fender flares, and a compact greenhouse.
Out back, there’s an angular window that directs air to a prominent spoiler with an integrated third brake light. We can also see three dimensional taillights and a rounded bumper. The standard Q6 e-tron is largely similar, but it adopts a less flamboyant roofline as practicality is the name of the game.
The biggest mystery remains the powertrain lineup, but the PPE-based A6 e-tron concept could offer some clues. It had a roughly 100 kWh battery pack as well as a dual motor powertrain that produced a combined output of 469 hp (350 kW / 476 PS) and 590 lb-ft (800 Nm) of torque. That being said, we can expect a variety of powertrains including high-performance variants.
