Audi launches the Q5 e-tron. Based on ID.6, packed with 308 hp and a range of 560 km

Before a car can be launched in China, the automaker must apply to the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT). The MIIT publishes the list of applications every month. Automakers aren’t happy about this as their as-yet-announced models may be exposed. We don’t mind.

MIIT list released the list today and we have a nice catch right away. The SAIC-Audi second model, the Audi Q5 e-tron, has been exposed. Their first car developed for the Chinese market was the Audi A7L – the longer sedan of the A7.

The Q5 e-tron is a purely electric car. Although the label Q5 says e-tron, it is not a gas Q5 converted into an electric car. In fact, it has nothing to do with the gasoline version of the Q5. Do you remember the Audi concept car that was presented at Shanghai Auto in April? That’s it. Finally, we can see the production version and specifications. The new Q5 e-tron is based on the VW electric MEB platform.
