Audi A6 Avant e-tron Concept debuts – 700 km range, 476 PS/800Nm

Audi has unveiled the Audi A6 Avant e-tron Concept, the station wagon counterpart to the Audi A6 e-tron concept that was unveiled last year.

Heavily production-oriented, the A6 Avant e-tron concept is no longer a simple design exercise as the A6 e-tron Sportback concept was.

Audi Board Member for Technical Development Oliver Hoffmann said, “With the Audi A6 Avant e-tron concept, we are offering a completely tangible look at future production models on our new PPE technology platform.”

Some performance and technical figures have been mentioned too for the upcoming electric station wagon including a 700-km WLTP range, 800-volt technology, 270-kW DC fast charging, 476 PS/800 Nm, and a 0-100km/h acceleration time of less than 4 seconds (in the high-performance variant).

The Audi A6 Avant e-tron is built on the Premium Platform Electric (PPE), which is jointly developed with Porsche with Audi leading the way.

Measuring 4.96 meters in length, 1.96 meters in width, and 1.44 meters in height, the concept A6 is the same size as its predecessor.

Large 22-inch wheels and short overhangs, the flat cabin, and a dynamic roof arch give the Avant proportions that are distinctly reminiscent of a sports car.

As for charging, Audi says the A6 can regain 300 km of range in just minutes with 270-kw DC fast charging. And in less than 25 minutes, you can charge the Audi A6 Avant e-tron concept’s 100 kWh battery from 5 to 80 percent.

Paired with a 100-kWh battery providing 700 km of range (WLTP), the Audi A6 Avant e-tron concept seems like the perfect EV for exciting adventures.

In the lighting department, the Audi A6 Avant e-tron features Digital Matrix LED and digital OLED technology.

One new feature in the taillights is the three-dimensional architecture of the digital OLED elements, that – adapted to the shape of the body – makes it possible to perfectly integrate the night design into the overall look.

Interior images of the A6 Avant e-tron concept have yet to be released.

With the Sportback

The PPE platform used in the Audi A6 Avant e-tron concept is flexible and can accommodate several body styles including SUVs and CUVs. The first PPE-based Audi production vehicle will be unveiled starting in 2023.
