China – Audi A6 L e-tron shown image

The Audi A6 L e-tron has been recently introduced on the Chinese automotive market but this will be offered for sale next year, after production will start at the Changchun factory.

The Audi A6 L e-tron plug-in hybrid is a vehicle which has been developed exclusively for the Chinese automotive market. This is basically the plug-in hybrid e-tron version of the already popular A6 L and it can easily stand out from a crowd thanks to the new and unique 18-inch e-tron alloy wheels, to the LED lights, the Explore Blue exterior paint scheme, the e-tron badges on the front fenders, the rear bumper with the dual exhaust system and several other tweaks.

The new Audi A6 L e-tron is packing a 2.0 liter four-cylinder TFSI engine, which is backed up by an electric motor. The internal combustion engine is rated at 211 HP (155 kW) and 350 Nm (258 lb-ft) of torque, while the electric motor is providing an extra 124 HP (91 kW) and 220 Nm (162 lb-ft) of torque.
