Nearly Bare: 99% Camo Free Audi Q6 e-tron Spotted

Unmistakably non-electrical appearance.

The Audi Q6 e-tron was recently spotted by CarBuzz in Europe. The photos captured of the electric SUV are quite telling, leaving us to question why Audi has not fully unveiled the vehicle and removed all the camouflage. A small amount of white vinyl is still present at both the front grille and the rear, hiding a portion of the car. Unfortunately, we are unable to see what is concealed by the obscured rear reflectors. However, even without the Audi badge on the tailgate, it is undoubtedly a product of Ingolstadt.

For some unknown reason, this marks the first time we have seen fully disguised vehicles on American turf since May of 2023. This indicates that an unveiling is very likely just around the corner.

As we are all aware, the elegant taillights not only please the eye, but also possess intelligent features such as the capability to alert fellow drivers of potential dangers on the road. The headlights have yet to be addressed by Audi, but it is highly probable that they will also exhibit similar smart functions, possibly utilizing the adaptable Matrix LED technology which impressed us during our test drive of the SQ8 in Cape Town.

According to the latest updates, the interior of the new Audi has already been revealed nearly five months ago. As quoted, “We also know what the interior will be like.” In case you missed the reveal, the main features include a state-of-the-art “Digital Stage,” the use of sustainable materials, and a noticeable aversion to infotainment buttons. However, there is some good news as the physical volume knob will still be present. On the other hand, the steering wheel will now have touch controls.

This will mark the premiere of Audi’s first vehicle built on the Premium Platform Electric (PPE) architecture, which is already being used for the latest Porsche Macan. The top-of-the-line Turbo model boasts an impressive 630 horsepower and 833 lb-ft of torque, a powertrain that may be replicated in the future RS Q6 e-tron. However, the particular Q6 model showcased in these photos will likely have lower performance numbers, though still respectable at 469 hp and 590 lb-ft. If the PPE platform has kept its weight in check, these figures should suffice.

We will provide an update as soon as additional information is unveiled, which is expected to be imminent.
