Audi has released the first official teaser with the published by the guys from Car Magazine, the “green” SAV will be offered in two configurations initially, with 300 HP (223 kW) and 449 Nm (332 lb-ft) of torque, along with a 400 HP (299 kW) and 649 Nm (479 lb-ft) of torque, with both of them offering it a total range which will stand close to 200 miles (322 km).

Things will not stop here in the development of the new Audi Q6 e-tron because rumor has it that a more potent RS version will be introduced too. The new Audi Q6 e-tron RS should come with as much as 500 HP (373 kW) and 749 Nm (553 lb-ft) of torque, but it seems that this will be offered towards the end of the decade, so don’t expect it anytime soon.

The model will be a competitor to the Tesla Model X and it should be offered for sale in 2018, for about 85,000 euros. More details on it remain unknown at this time.
