Audi AG is expected to showcase a hydrogen-powered version of its Q6 e-tron quattro concept at the North American International Auto Show 2016.

Not so long time ago we were thinking that fuel cell vehicles are more dead than alive – try to list at least 5 hydrogen vehicles except Toyota Mirai and Toyota FCV–, but it turns out that everything is not that bad.

Toyota Motor Company somehow managed to bring along other automakers on this market – maybe “fueled by bullsh*t” ad helped– and, finally, there will be other automakers that are into this technology.

Cool, isn’t it?

There is going to be a fierce completion between automakers for a place in the sun–ok, maybe not that fierce since except Toyota and Audi there is practically nobody, but it’s bound to change in the nearest future.

Hydrogen fuel cell-powered version of Q6 e-tron quattro 

A hydrogen fuel cell-powered version of Audi e-tron quattro will be revealed at the North American International Auto Show 2016 – an exhibition mainly known as Detroit Motor Show.

The all-new vehicle will be using the same MLB platform as the all-electric e-tron quattro and hydrogen fuel cells will be mounted low down in the vehicle.

The same ‘trickery’ is applied in the electric version too – car’s batteries, which are mounted low down in the vehicle, create the best possible center of gravity. 

A little bit more information about the vehicle

Audi AG applied to trademark the phrase 'h-tron’ earlier this year. It’s already known the German manufacturer is looking to bring fuel cell technology to market, and in November we sampled the A 7 h-tron.

 

Engineers from Audi are said to have plenty of faith in hydrogen as a fuel, due to the ease with which it can be created, using wind turbines to 'crack' water into hydrogen and oxygen.

Design

Exterior design is expected to be similar to Q6 e-tron.

Specs

Alas, we don’t know anything about Q6 h-tron specs, but we reckon that a production version will be featuring around the same range as all-electric Q6 e-tron.

Otherwise, Hyundai ix35, Toyota Mirai and FCV will eat h-tron for breakfast.

More information is coming.

Stay tunes with us: we’ll be on hand at the 2016 NAIAS with live images and reports from the show floor.
