Audi A6 Avant e-tron concept: All information about the electric A6

The electric Audi A6 is coming! Audi is continuing to expand its electric car model range and will also be offering the A6 as an e-tron alongside the combustion engine version from 2024. As early as 2021, the Ingolstadt-based company showed the sedan as a concept, now the station wagon will follow – also as a study. But it should already be very close to the production car!

The production version of the A6 e-tron will be available in 2024

According to Audi, the A6 Avant e-tron concept should correspond to 90 to 95 percent of the production version planned for 2024. Means: Except for small adjustments to the proportions (slightly narrower and higher) and smaller details such as door handles, we will see this station wagon at Audi dealers in a good two years, the Ingolstadt-based company promise full-bodied.

The front corresponds to that of the already known A6 e-tron concept. The closed single-frame radiator grille is typical of Audi’s electric models.

Prices from around 90,000 euros?

The price at which the electric A6 will be offered has not yet been determined. For comparison: The Audi e-tron GT currently starts at 101,600 euros. AUTO BILD assumes that the A6 e-tron will be around 10,000 euros cheaper at 90,000 euros. For the Avant, another 2000 to 3000 euros should be extra. We will know more details by 2024 at the latest, because then the A6 e-tron will be unveiled as a sedan and Avant. Deliveries of the first customer vehicles are planned for the same year.

The new PPE platform with 800 volt technology enables fast charging with up to 270 kW. A range of 300 kilometers should be able to be charged in ten minutes.

Study with 350 kW (476 hp) and 800 Nm

Just like the Audi A6 e-tron concept, the Avant is also based on the PPE platform developed jointly with Porsche. PPE stands for “Premium Platform Electric” and is intended to form the basis for all medium-class vehicles in the future. The key features of PPE are: 800 volt technology, a charging capacity of up to 270 kW and scalable battery sizes. In the case of the A6 Avant e-tron concept, two electric motors (front and rear) with a system output of 350 kW (476 hp) and a maximum torque of 800 Nm as well as a battery with around 100 kWh are used. Quattro is a matter of honor due to the two engines (one each on the front and rear axle). In any case, power is transmitted to all four wheels by a single-speed gearbox. The production version is said to accelerate to 100 km/h in under four seconds.

800 volt technology and a range of up to 700 kilometers

Later production versions should also be available with pure rear-wheel drive and offer a range of up to 700 kilometers. The 800-volt technology also makes it possible to charge the battery with up to 270 kW (like the e-tron GT). Under ideal conditions, a range of up to 300 kilometers should be possible in ten minutes. Incidentally, the first Audi model on PPE will not be the A6 e-tron, but the SUV Q6 e-tron. At Porsche, the upcoming Macan will take on the role. Audi e-tron GT and Porsche Taycan are not based on PPE, but still on the J1 platform.

Visually, the study is reminiscent of the RS 6

The chocolate side of the A6 e-tron concept painted in the color “Neptune Valley” is definitely the view from an angle from behind: Continuous light strip, crouched silhouette that ends in a roof spoiler and is more reminiscent of a sporty shooting brake than a well-behaved station wagon. The strongly forward-leaning D-pillar emphasizes the massive wheel arches and the filigree 22-inch rims.

We already know it: Audi already unveiled the A6 e-tron concept in 2021. Here, the Ingolstadt themselves speak of a Sportback.

The 4.96 meter long and 1.96 meter wide Avant (current A6 Avant measures 4.94 meters and 1.89 meters) is brawny and reminds of the 600 hp Audi with the striking aluminum-look diffuser RS 6. Audi is also particularly proud of the very good drag coefficient of only 0.24, which is only slightly worse than that of the sedan (cd value 0.22).


• Length: 4.96 meters
• Width: 1.96 meters
• Height: 1.44 meters
• Wheelbase: 2.95 metres
• drag coefficient: 0.24

Audi A6 Avant e-tron concept still without interior

The closed single-frame radiator grille is typical of Audi’s electric models. Underneath are air inlets for cooling the drive and batteries and an illuminated e-tron logo. It is doubtful whether the illuminated Audi rings will make it into series production, as the production model will also have conventional door handles. However, the study does not currently have a functional interior, so we have to postpone this check, but there is still some time until 2024.

Playing games using the headlights?

One of the study’s technical highlights is located below the extra narrow headlights with three freely configurable LED strips. The so-called “Digital Matrix Units” are intended to project lighting effects, such as indicators, directly onto the road. But that’s not all: In order to shorten the waiting time during loading breaks, a game can be thrown against a wall and controlled with a smartphone. future music? Wait and see, after all, Audi has always caused surprises in the field of lighting technology in recent years.

RS 6 vibes: the beefy aluminum-look diffuser is reminiscent of the 600 hp top model. The continuous light strip consists of OLED elements and works like a display.

Will there also be an RS 6 Avant e-tron?

Autocar reports that the A6 e-tron Avant could also be available in an RS version. The strongest expansion stage of the model should therefore be presented shortly after the regular station wagon. According to the report, however, it will no longer stand out as much from its tamer brother in terms of design as is the case with the current A6 and RS 6. That makes perfect sense, after all, the drag coefficient plays a major role in the design of electric cars. Audi could take over the drive from the RS e-tron GT, where two electric motors deliver 598 hp (440 kW) and 830 Nm, in overboast mode it is even 646 hp (475 kW) and 830 Nm for a short time.
