Audi plans electrified long-wheelbase Q2

Audi plans electrified long-wheelbase Q2

Everyone is aware of the intended arrival of Audi’s Q2 L (long-wheelbase), slated to hit the Chinese market in 2018. However, latest reports now state that Audi’s little crossover will ditch the internal combustion engine for a fully electric powertrain. Although the car maker hasn’t disclosed the details, sources speculate that this Q2L EV will be equipped to deliver a range of 500km.

The regular Q2 variants in China are expected to be powered by three petrol options - a three-cylinder 1.0-litre TSI, a four-cylinder 1.4-litre and a 2.0-litre TFSI. These will either use the services of its six-speed manual gearbox or a seven-speed DSG transmission. Despite there being talk about front-wheel drive offered as standard, the top-end variants could essentially get Quattro AWD. Plus, it is unclear if the electric Q2 L will get its hands on the FWD system or the Quattro.  

The Chinese market is known to opt for LWB variants which inadvertently offer more legroom vis-à-vis upgrading to a bigger car (in this case, Q3). And the fact that this LWB model is slated to be made available in a fully electric version will sweeten the deal further. Parent company Volkswagen is focused on an electric future, especially after how Dieselgate turned out, so expect a slew of EVs in Audi’s upcoming portfolio.
