...as it's not an EV, just a 66 reg Audi Q2.

Unsure. I drove past it in the opposite direction about 10 minutes before and thought "What a poor place to stop". It's right on the junction of a side road, on a curve going uphill. Traffic approaching from behind doesn't have a good view to check if it's safe to pass.

At that time I could just see a driver sitting in the car, nothing more. No hazards, no smoke or anything else untoward. After my errand I returned the same route and saw that. A few cars had stopped. There were several people around - one with a CO2 extinguisher dangling from his hand looking into the engine bay. There was no-one in the car any more, so there was nothing I could add to the mix to help.

Quite a bit of smoke was still issuing out from the engine bay. It definitely was smoke, not steam - so not a coolant issue (split hose, etc.) Something most definitely had burnt and was still smoking significantly.
