Audi Q2 L E-Tron Is An Electric Crossover With 165 Miles Of Range

Audi unveiled the Q2 L e-tron at the Shanghai Auto Show earlier this week, but it was hard to notice as the company focused nearly all of its attention on the AI:ME concept.

While the automaker didn’t say much about the crossover, it was designed specifically for the Chinese market and will go into production at their Foshan plant later this year.

Based on the extended wheelbase Q2 L, which measures 1.3 inches (33 mm) longer than the standard model, the Q2 L e-tron is an electric crossover that features a front electric motor. It produces 134 hp (100 kW / 136 PS) and 214 lb-ft (290 Nm) of torque. Audi declined to mention detailed performance specifications, but the Q2 L e-tron has a 38 kWh battery pack which enables the model to travel up to 165 miles (265 km) on a single charge.

Besides the electric powertrain, the Q2 L e-tron has been given a modest makeover. Starting up front, the crossover has been equipped with a partially enclosed grille and new air intakes which are framed by a metallic surround.

Since the model doesn’t need exhaust tips, there’s a new rear bumper with a chrome-trimmed diffuser. The Q2 L e-tron also has plastic body cladding and aerodynamically optimized five-spoke alloy wheels.

The Q2 L e-tron will go on sale in China this summer and more details will likely be announced closer to launch.
