Audi is allegedly developing an all-electric variant of a forthcoming Audi Q2 long-wheelbase model.
Indian Autos Blog claims that the vehicle is being developed under the codename ‘Audi X55 BEV’ and will be underpinned by the carmaker’s MQB platform. Few details about its electric powertrain are known but it is claimed that a range of roughly 500 km (310 miles) could be on the cards.
Before this all-electric Q2 hits the market, Audi will launch the Q2 L (long-wheelbase) in China later this year. This model will reportedly be available with a 116 PS 1.0-liter TFSI engine, a 150 PS 1.4-liter TFSI, and a 190 PS 2.0-liter TFSI petrol. Both a six-speed manual and seven-speed S tronic dual-clutch transmission will be offered to customers.
An all-electric Audi Q2 L is an enticing prospect and if priced correctly, could act as the perfect premium alternative to the upcoming Tesla Model Y.
As good as this all sounds, we’re taking the reports with a grain of salt and recommend you do the same. We’ve contacted Audi to seek clarification.
