Audi Q6 e-tron to get RS spec image

The upcoming Audi Q6 e-tron will be an all-electric version of the SAV which is said to give birth to a more potent RS spec.

Audi has released the first official teaser with the all-electric Q6 just a few days back and now the model in question is returning in new details. According to a recent report, 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 brand new Audi Q6 e-tron will get a similar shape to the BMW X6 and to the Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe and it will be riding on the MLB platform, the same as the next generation Q5. 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.
