Last week, Audi began selling its first locally-produced all-electric car, an extended Q2 SUV, in China as part of an effort to electrify its local product line.

According to the brand, the electric compact crossover Q2L e-tron costs from 692,800 yuan to 800,800 yuan after government subsidies.

The car has a length of 4237 mm, a width of 1785 mm and a height of 1458 mm with a wheelbase of 2628 mm. Powered by lithium-ion batteries from the Chinese supplier Modern Amperex Technology, the Q2L e-tron has a range of 265 kilometers (165 miles) on a single charge and a top speed of 150 km per hour. Its electric motor provides a maximum power of 100 kW and a maximum torque of 290 Nm.

Audi will launch its next e-tron rechargeable electric car in China in 2021. The e-tron, a larger crossover than the e-tron Q2L, entered the market as imports with a starting price of 692,800 yuan.

German rivals Mercedes-Benz and BMW are also making efforts to build electric vehicles in China. The BMW brand is due to begin selling its first Chinese EV battery, the iX3, next year.
