Audi is determined not to let the coming Tesla Model X electric SUV steal the limelight.

To counter, a sleek-profiled Q6 Coupe E-tron is in the works. After a shadowy teaser was revealed in June, a more revealing look has snuck out.

Still just a rendering at this stage, but indicative of what we can expect when the covers come off the real car at the Frankfurt Motor Show.

In place of the more fast-back style of BMW’s X4 and Mercedes-Benz’ GLC Coupe, the Q6 (currently referred to by its C-BEV working title) comes with a flatter roof and more upright D-pillar

The influence of Audi’s earlier Prologue concepts can clearly be seen, particularly through the fattened rear quarters. Slender LED taillights reach into the tailgate, to emphasise width.

The front remains under wraps for now, but like the Prologue concepts we can expect the Q6 to move to smaller headlamps and a broader grille.

Construction is expected to be largely aluminium, with other light-weight materials used to help offset the additional weight of the required battery packs.

Audi has previously confirmed that the Q6 E-tron will boast a range in excess of 500km. Powertrain technology is to be derived from that underpinning the R8 E-tron electric supercar.

While not destined to run traditional petrol and diesel engines, plug-in hybrid and possibly fuel cell variants are also a possibility to join the Q6 range after its initial introduction.

After its concept debut in Frankfurt the Q6 Coupe is expected to go on sale late in 2018 or early in 2019.
