Spy photographers recently spotted in southern Europe an Audi Q3 with a charging inlet on the left-front fender, which clearly indicates it's a plug-in test mule.

The question without an answer is whether it's a plug-in hybrid or an all-electric Audi test vehicle. It might herald a Q3 PHEV or a Q3/Q4 e-tron BEV, according to CarPix.

Audi already announced several new PHEV models and a Q3 PHEV might be just another one:

Audi PHEV models:

  • Audi Q5 55 TFSI e quattro (two versions - comfort and performance) (from Q3 2019)
  • Audi Q7 PHEV (probably late 2019/2020)
  • Audi A6 TFSI e (two versions - comfort and performance) (coming soon)
  • Audi A7 Sportback TFSI e (two versions - comfort performance) (coming soon)
