It will also arrive around the same time as an all-electric Audi compact similar to the Volkswagen I.D. “We decided to go the SUV way because, even though the architecture is a little more difficult because you don’t have the perfect aerodynamics, people love to sit in an SUV and we have to respect the growing trend of SUV segments,” said Stadler. “I think this was two or three years ago absolutely the right decision.” Audi’s electric SUV was previously previewed by the e-tron Quattro Concept
, and while it’s likely to have a similar shape, it probably won’t retain the Q6 name. Stadler also confirmed that the all-electric compact Audi is expected to share the same 168-hp electric motor as the Volkswagen I.D.
