While BMW has been pointlessly charging more for less with their stylized X5 that we know as the X6, Mercedes-Benz just recently revealed their competitor for the first time with the GLE Coupe. That of course leaves the third German rival without a direct competitor to the X6, Audi.
Though due to exponential demand increases, Audi immediately hopped on the luxury sports crossover bandwagon with their research and development. And the apparent, soon-to-be result is this Audi Q6, which was supposedly leaked in concept form ahead of its Frankfurt Motor Show.
As anticipated, it looks like a lowered, sleeker, and sportier version of the Q7 with a slick-back roofline and decreased ride height.
Not much is known in terms of specifics, but the new Q6 should ride on Audi’s latest MLB Evo modular architecture and the concept will debut with an all-electric powertrain utilizing three motors and a 90 kWh battery for an output of around 500hp and 517 lb-ft of twist. In theory, the concept boasts a total range of 311 miles.
