You know how the VW ID.3, Cupra Born, Audi Q4 and Skoda Enyaq are all pretty much the same car underneath? Well the Q6 is the same underneath as the new Porsche Macan and the all-electric A6. This is the first chance we’ve had to looks around this slice of the future. Audi says the bits underneath the Q6 will "redefine the industry’s benchmarks in terms of performance, range and charging.

The Q6 name probably gives away where this car fits in the Audi line up – it’s smaller than a Q8 e-tron but bigger than the Q4. It is due to go on sale at the end of 2023 with a price I’ve been promised will start with a five. That’s going to be decent value, since a BMW iX3 starts at £64,000.

The figures we’ve seen for the Q6 make that ‘redefining’ claim look like a bit of an exaggeration, but the figures are certainly impressive. This new platform, as it’s called in car making terms, is called PPE. Which has nothing to do with facemasks – it stands for Premium Platform Electric.

In the version we tried there are two motors, one at each end producing a total of 375bhp. But if you ask the car nicely it will give you a 20bhp bonus for overtaking or standing starts for a short period.

Audi say it’s enough for a 0-60 time of under six seconds. That’s plenty but won’t win you many bragging competitions in a world where an MG4 can manage it in less than four seconds and will be half the price of some Q6s.
