Audi confirms second electric vehicle is planned after the Q6’s launch

Audi has disclosed plans to introduce a second electric vehicle to follow up their already confirmed 2018 zero-emission crossover.

The e-tron quattro concept currently on display at the Frankfurt Motor Show is a sneak preview of an all-electric Audi programmed to go on sale about three years from now with the “Q6” moniker. It won’t remain the only pure electric model with the four ring logo for a long time as Audi of America President Scott Keogh said during an interview at IAA in Frankfurt that a second electric vehicle is already on the agenda.

He refused to elaborate on the subject, but did say it will join the lineup several years after the Q6 which means that it will be out after the end of the decade. Keogh went on to specify the company believes there is a market for electric vehicles if these have what the potential customers are looking for: longer range and smaller prices.

Battery technology is showing major signs of improvement and Audi has already announced the Q6 (name not confirmed yet) will provide a range of more than 311 miles (500 km) thanks to a newly developed battery pack created together with Samsung SDI and LG Chem.
