Audi Q6 e-tron spotted trying out Porsche’s latest platform
Audi will be launching the all-electric SUV dubbed the Q6 e-tron next year, which will slot in in between the Q4 e-tron and the large e-tron model, based on the PPE architecture of the latest Porsche Macan.
The last time we saw the Q6 testing out in the open was in March this year, so these new photos were greatly anticipated. Unfortunately, however, very little has changed since the last sighting: the camouflage is as thick as ever, the lower front grille is missing altogether, and the rear end sports obviously fake taillights. Even so, it should be obvious that the Q6 takes strongly after the original e-tron.
The switch to the PPE platform will enable the new SUV to have a rather long wheelbase and support charging terminals rated above 270 kW. Such features as torque vectoring, 4WS and air suspension will also be supported.
Along with the standard trim version, a range-topping Q6 e-tron RS should come out with around 600 PS (592 hp / 441 kW) at the wheels and over 500 km (310 miles) of WLTP-rated driving range.
