By 2020, Audi plans to become a leader in the electrification of the premium cars line segment. Hybrid version will be prepared and for the top supercar R20, and utra-economical “one-liter” hatchback. But in the middle of the range will soon shine a new star Audi A6 Sportback e-tron. Judging by the index, as opposed to passenger cars in a line of “sixes”, it will become an advanced hybrid with a charging cord. And the new name also hints at a new body – a streamlined five-door larger than model A5 Sportback, but a little smaller than A7 Sportback.

In Ingolstadt are determined to develop the theme of hybrid and electric vehicles. It is not an accident that in the last year it was decided to postpone for an indefinite time (if not for always) setting on the conveyor the electric coupe R8 e-tron, and the battery modification Hatch A2 is not in company’s plans for the foreseeable future. Even this hatchback project, is apparently frozen and the possibility of revival of the project is quite small.

All leaked information is informal. Perhaps the novelty will receive the power unit that combines a two-liter 4-cylinder from the model S3 (300 hp) and a 100-horsepower electric motor. If the rumors about the Audi A6 Sportback e-tron are correct, we will see this model in Frankfurt in September 2013. For a start it would be only a concept.
