The 7-seat Volkswagen ID.6, currently available only in China, soon will get a cousin - Audi Q5 e-tron, hinted at in August in the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT)'s documents.

On the technical level, it's basically the same car, based on the Modular Electric Drive Toolkit (MEB), but in Audi's style and with a more premium approach.

According to the latest reports, there will be several versions available with two battery options (63.2 kWh and 83.4 kWh) and a few powertrain options (rear-wheel drive and all-wheel drive). The 83.4 kWh battery combined with 150 kW rear-wheel drive will offer up to 560 km (348 miles) of NEDC range.

The unveiling of the Audi Q5 e-tron is expected at the upcoming Guanguzhou Motor Show on November 19, 2021.

We assume that the car will be produced alongside Volkswagen ID.6, at one of the joint venture plants - FAW-Volkswagen in Foshan and/or SAIC Volkswagen in Anting. That way, Volkswagen Group expands its EV lineup with the lowest possible cost and effort.
