2020 Audi Q2 L E-Tron Will Be The Company’s Smallest Electric SUV But Only For China

Audi’s plan to electrify its model range includes the compact Q2 SUV, which is set to receive the full E-Tron treatment as announced late last year.

Back then the company said that it will offer a full electric version of the long-wheelbase variant of the Q2 specifically to Chinese customers and this is our second time spotting a camouflaged test car.

Last time we saw the Q2 L E-tron test car was in Germany but now Audi took it further north for some proper cold-weather development work.

Unlike the production version of the Q4 E-Tron which will be based on the EV-only MEB architecture, the Q2 L E-Tron is going to use a reengineered version of the normal Q2’s underpinnings, mounting the electric motor up front and the battery pack probably lying under the passenger cell.

Exterior differences include a set of redesigned bumpers, along with a different front grille that shares the same style with the bigger E-Tron and the rather obvious absence of exhaust tips.

Audi didn’t mention any details on the specs of the upcoming Q2 L E-Tron, with previous reports suggesting a driving range of up to 310 miles (500km) on a full charge.

According to the company’s latest announcement, Audi plans to offer 12 new electrified models by the end of 2020, with six plug-in hybrid models to be added in the range this year. The 2020 Audi Q2 L E-Tron is expected to be launched in China this year, and will be sold alongside the bigger E-Tron.
