New photo of the upcoming Audi Q6 e-tron in prototype form reveal some interesting details of this much-anticipated new electric SUV. It will be an alternative to vehicles like the Mercedes EQC, Ford Mustang Mach E, and BMW iX when it goes on sale in 2022.

2022 Audi Q6 e-tron design

This is the first time a Q6 e-tron prototype has been spotted out on the road

These new spy shots of the Q6 e-tron give you some clues as to what the finished product will look like when it arrives next year. The slightly obscured headlights show echoes of the thin high-mounted units on the A6 e-tron concept.

You can bet there’s a blanked-off front grille lurking beneath the swirly camo wrap, while the intake beneath the front bumper reveals a camera that most likely forms part of the autonomous driving system.

Expect to see the Q6 e-tron looking something quite like this when it arrives in 2023

The exclusive rendering (above) shows what the new Q6 e-tron could look like once the camouflage comes off.

A set of traditional side mirrors are fitted to the test-car, although you may still see the thin camera-based side mirrors from earlier concepts (and the above render) making it to the production model.

The rear of the Q6 e-tron resembles the small Q4 e-tron, but Audi has gone to great lengths to keep you guessing about the final design by fitting a set of round taillights.

These will almost certainly be replaced by horizontal LED bars, just like those on the Audi Q4 e-tron SUV in due course.

2022 Audi Q6 e-tron batteries and range

It’s likely the Q6 e-tron will use the same 100kWh battery as the A6 e-tron (concept pictured)

It’s likely the Audi Q6 e-tron would share the 100kWh battery from the upcoming A6 e-tron saloon, which will go on sale after this new SUV in 2023.

The A6 e-tron was recently shown as a concept car with 435 miles of range. Expect the larger Q6 e-tron to have a slightly shorter range of around 400 miles as a result of its larger size and less aerodynamic body.

A variety of motor options should be on offer, including single- and dual-motor variants — possibly with as much as 476hp and 800Nm of torque. That’s the same as you’ll get from a range-topping A6 e-tron.

2023 Audi Q6 e-tron interior and infotainment

Expect a similar interior to the Q4 e-tron (pictured)

The Audi Q6 e-tron will likely use an interior similar to the Q4 e-tron, albeit with a bit more space and a few more luxurious touches as a result of its higher price tag.

Plenty of recycled materials should be used throughout, and it’ll almost certainly feature a similar squared-off steering wheel with touch-sensitive buttons as you get in the Audi Q4 e-tron.

Also like that car, the new Q6 e-tron should have a completely flat floor inside, so there’ll be plenty of room in the back for passengers to stretch out.

Augmented reality tech should feature in the head-up display

You should expect the Q6 e-tron to have an augmented reality head-up display, which should be able to place navigational directions on the road ahead as well as a large central touchscreen.

2023 Audi Q6 e-tron price and release date

The Audi Q6 e-tron could go on sale in 2023, just ahead of the A6 e-tron saloon. You can expect it to cost from around £60,000, which would make the new Q6 e-tron slightly cheaper than today’s Audi e-tron SUV.
