Moreover, the new e-tron will also boast a new modified version of the Audi’s MLB architecture that boasts superior dynamics, improved flexibility, and better space management. From what we know so far, this new version of the electric SUV will get more efficient and powerful electric motors in addition to upgraded electronics and enhanced functions. The battery pack too has been upgraded and the SUV is now expected to boast a maximum range of around 600 km on a single charge (WLTp cycle). For those wondering, the current iteration gets a 95 kWh battery pack that offers a claimed range of 379 km on a single charge (WLTP cycle).

Speaking about the car, an Audi official shared, “They will both be significantly upgraded with a number of technical updates that will further increase their competitiveness. The Q6 e-tron will compete in a different market segment to the e-tron and e-tron Sportback”. He further added, “it’s smaller – roughly the size of the [conventionally-powered] Q5. However, the dedicated platform will allow it to offer interior and load-carrying space similar to today’s Q7.”
