Audi’s new seven-seater has been unveiled and is now on its way – to China.
Chinese government for industrial and information technology, MIIT has proven to be a real goldmine for car news in recent years. The car manufacturers must in fact send pictures and documentation of all models that they are to sell in the country to the authority – which then publishes the “patent pictures” openly.
In this way, several new cars have been leaked before their official premieres recently – for example Volkswagen’s seven-seater electric SUV ID 6, which will only be sold in China (where it is also manufactured).
Recently, the same thing happened with its upcoming siblings from Audi, several car sites report online. It’s called the Audi Q5 e-tron. Just as the Volkswagen ID 6 is an extended ID.4, the Q5 is also an extended Q4 e-tron, or perhaps rather an ID 6 adorned with the four rings, whatever that sounds like.
In total, the model measures 4,876 mm in length, with a wheelbase of 2,965 mm, just like ID.6.
Of the pictures that Judging by the Q5 e-tron, it will be offered with both rear and four-wheel drive, just like other SUV models on Volkswagen’s MEB platform.
The rear-wheel drive model is called the Q5 35 e-tron and has either 177 or 201 horsepower. The four-wheel drive Q5 50 e-tron will then have just over 300 horsepower. According to the information MIIT published, it weighs a solid 2,410 kg.
The range should at best 56 miles according to the older, more forgiving NEDC driving cycle still used in China. The fast charging will top 150 kW, more than the MEB siblings Volkswagen ID.4, Audi Q4 e-tron and Skoda Enyaq can handle at present.
The official premiere of the Audi Q5 e-tron is expected sometime later this fall. Since 2019, Audi has also been selling a smaller, cheaper electric SUV exclusively in China. It’s called the Audi Q2L e-tron.
Audi should launch the Q5 e-tron in Sweden as well!
