Audi has been working diligently to up its alternatively fueled vehicle game in recent months, and has just announced plans to add a fuel-cell and plug-in vehicle to its line in 2018.
Currently, the buzz on the auto-boards surrounds Audi’s all-electric Q6 crossover; the vehicle was first mentioned earlier this year by a member of Audi’s board of management for Technical Development, Prof. Dr. Ulrich Hackenberg at the company’s annual meeting.
Although Audi has not officially released anything to the press regarding the all-electric Q6, Hackenberg has made several references to its crossover styling and structure.
Audi is expected to give the press a quick peek of the Q6 concept later this year at the Frankfurt Auto Show. The all-electric Q6 is expected to arrive in 2018, but no timeline has been set for the other iterations.
Last spring, he told Autocar “The Q6 will come. It will be something new, following designs established on the Prologue concept. It will be positioned as something more emotional and sportier than the Q7. The Q7 will be a car for seven people, the Q6 will be more coupe-like.”
