Audi RS Q e-tron E2: lighter, more aerodynamic and even more efficient

Dakar test Zaragoza, July 2022
  • Second evolution of the rally winner competing for the first time in October
  • Fundamentally new body optimizes weight and air flow
  • Improved operating strategy and optimized control concept

In March 2022, the Audi RS Q e-tron won its first desert rally in Abu Dhabi, and now the next evolution is ready. The innovative prototype presents itself significantly improved for the 2022 Morocco Rally and the 2023 Dakar Rally. The body is completely new and features significantly enhanced aerodynamics. It helps lower the prototype’s weight and center of gravity. New operating strategies further improve the efficiency of the electric drivetrain. In the interior and when changing wheels, the driver and co-driver benefit from easier operation. Following these evolutions, the RS Q e-tron now bears the abbreviation E2. It is reminiscent of the legendary Audi Sport quattro in its final development stage for Group B rallying in the 1980s.
