Audi A6 e-tron

Audi and its Chinese joint-venture partner FAW have announced that they’ll be building a production version of the Audi A6 E-Tron Concept, shown at the 2012 Beijing Motor Show. Based on the China-only long-wheelbase A6, the plug-in-hybrid model is being targeted specifically at the People’s Republic.

Audi is promising a 50-kilometer (31-mile) electric range for the fuel-sipping sedan, although there are precious few details beyond that. We do know, though, that this will be a Chinese-built vehicle, with assembly slated for the FAW-Volkswagen joint-venture factory in Changchun. We presume we’ll find out more when the Beijing Motor Show kicks off a few weeks from today.

“We are the market leader in China’s premium segment and will continue systematically with the application of efficiency technologies. Audi is thus supporting the Chinese government’s targets for the reduction of fuel consumption,” said Dr. Dietmar Voggenreiter, the president of Audi China.

Take a look below for the full press release from Audi and FAW.
