Default 201? Audi E-Tron/Q6?

http://www.carscoops.com/2017/07/sco...ic-audi-e.html

We can't be 100% sure if this will be the all electric E-Tron CUV, or the Q6 model. Audi claims they will be different cars though. Anyway, it looks like any other Audi CUV fitted with the new A8's huge mouth. So whether it is the E-Tron, as the article speculates, or a Q6 (what I believe it is, if only because the front grille is a functional one), it will stylistically fit in and in case it is all electric, not visually be different form a petrol/Diesel Audi



It looks rather ready, so I expect that to be shown either later this year, or something like Geneva 2018;

There is the plug cover in front of the driver's door, so it is electric, unless it is a plug-in hybrid Q8.


I hope it will have more ground clearance, or that it will at least not be as high as SUVs.

It has to be purely electric since a hybrid wouldn't make sense.

A plug-in hybrid is the better choice over an EV given the current state of technology of the latter, but EVs are trendy, so...

Some more pics of teh E-Tron; It really just looks like another "Allroad wagon", I don't get why they don#t make it look a bit cooler, more advanced, different if they already make a stand alone electric vehicle. I mean even the VW electric cars have a different design language (granted, they are just concepts so far). This is just more of the same, and manages to looks like an evolution even without a predecessor...

At least now it has no FWD overhang.

Especially when it's almost identical to the Q8...but ever so slightly different.

Looks promising, great stance especially from the front 3/4 view. Luckily much better than the Q7.
