The new Audi A6L will debut at the Beijing Auto Show in April, but here we have one example all naked, probably at some dealer-event. The A6L is a China-only A6 stretched by some 15 centimeters for more space in the back, it is made in China by the FAW-Volkswagen joint venture.
Price will range from around 330.000 until 700.000 yuan. The A6L always was the vehicle of choice for government officials but that might change soon. I am not so sure whether Audi sees that as a bad thing. Many private buyers didn’t even consider the A6L exactly because its association with the government.
Audi will completely change its name-suffix system in China, for yet unclear reasons. The 3.0 TFSI becomes 50 TFSI, the 2.5 FSI becomes 30 FSI and the 2.8 FSI becomes 35 FSI. Same thing goes for the imported A8, the rest of the range will follow.
