Audi Q6 e-tron is Belgium-bound for building
The first Audi Q6 e-tron cars will be built in 2018 in the brand’s Belgian plant in Brussels.
The battery-electric mid-size SUV with sleek, coupé-like styling could produce as much as 496bhp from its three electric motors, as well as a zero-emission range of up to 311 miles on a single charge.
Designed from the ground up to be electrically-powered, the Q6 e-tron will sit on the LLB Evo platform found in the latest models from Audi. The e-tron quattro concept, revealed at the 2016 Frankfurt Motor Show, offers a glimpse of what’s to come from a design perspective, but the Q6 e-tron will most certainly sport a bold, new design.
Incorporating the latest developments in lightweight construction, aerodynamics, battery technology and electric drive systems, the Q6 e-tron will offer performance to rival any traditionally-fuelled models, plus its quick charging, high-capacity battery will provide supreme sportiness, driving dynamics and efficiency.
The Brussels plant where Audi will build its athletic, technology-packed electric SUV, as well as create its lithium-ion batteries, is currently responsible for building the A1; production of this compact hatch will be moved to a plant in Spain in readiness for the Q6 e-tron’s arrival.
