Audi C-BEV Concept is Frankfurt Bound Previewing Q6 EV

The Audi C-BEV concept will debut in September at the Frankfurt Motor Show, likely previewing the upcoming Q6 electric crossover.

Renders of the Audi C-BEV concept made an early appearance on the Internet today, revealing what will likely be the recently rumored 2019 Audi Q6 aimed to take on the Tesla Model X electric crossover. Sporting a sleek profile and four doors, the C-BEV concept has a coupe-like roofline and blends a bit of everything from Audi: styling from its Avant wagons, Allroad crossovers and its existing Q models.

Audi R&D head Ulrich Hackenberg confirmed earlier this year that the German automaker was developing a “battery-powered sports activity vehicle in the large premium segment with a range of more than 500 km (310 miles).” Expected to sport the Q6 nameplate, the model will go on sale in early 2018.

Meanwhile, Audi officially teased new lighting technology that will also debut at this year’s Frankfurt Motor Show called Matrix OLED that will “enable a previously unattainable level of lighting homogeneity, opening up further creative opportunities for design,” according to automaker. Initial projects are currently in development to implement the technology in production tail lights and will be shown for the first time on a concept car (likely the C-BEV) at Frankfurt.
