A new report from Autocar outlines a fuel-cell version of the Audi e-tron Quattroconcept will make its official debut at the 2016 Detroit auto show.
The all-electric e-tron Quattro concept made a big splash at the 2015 Frankfurt auto show a few months ago, where Audi reveled the SUV as an obvious move against Elon Musk’s Tesla Model X. With a 310-mile range, a more conventional design, and an established dealer network, the e-tron has the potential to attract more buyers than the wild Model X. Production of the e-tron concept will likely be under the Audi Q6 model nameplate when it hits dealer lots in 2018.

Now, Autocar reports a reworked version of this electric SUV will make its official debut at the upcoming Detroit auto show. While the e-tron packs a traditional electric powertrain, the so-called Audi Q6 h-tron will feature a new hydrogen fuel-cell powerplant similar to the Audi A7 Sportback h-tron Quattro we drove last year.
The Audi Q6 h-tron will wear only minor visual modifications from its Q6 e-tron brother, and fit into the Audi Q6 lineup alongside conventional gas-powered engines.
If the rumors and reports are accurate, look for the Audi Q6 h-tron to drop its cover next month.
