Audi technology communications manager Oliver Strohbach has revealed some new details about the Q7 e-tron.

Speaking CarAdvice, Strohbach confirmed the model would be introduced later this year or early next year. Healso said the model will ride on the MLB Evo platform which will eventually underpin the next-generation A4, A6 / A7, A8 and "all the family."

Power will be provided by a 3.0-liter TDI V6 engine that is backed up by an electric motor. This will reportedly give the model a combined maximum output of 373 PS (275kW) and 700Nm (516 lb-ft) of torque. Despite the impressive performance figures, the crossover is expected to consume less than 4.0L/100km (58.8 mpg US / 70.6 mpg UK) and have an electric only range in excess of 50 km (31 miles).
