The A6 Avant e-tron concept is an all-electric station wagon of the near future.
Audi’s e-tron range is steadily growing, with models like the e-tron GT, Q4 e-tron, and upcoming Q6 e-tron. We’ve also seen the upcoming A6 e-tron in concept form, and now it's the turn of the Avant (estate) variant.
In terms of design, the A6 Avant e-tron concept looks very futuristic, just like other e-tron models. There are next-gen Matrix headlights, with OLED technology, and a sleek single-frame grille at the front. The A6 e-tron has a curvaceous profile overall, with short overhangs and a low ride height. While the design scores well in the form department, a drag coefficient of 0.24 means the function box is ticked too.
The A6 Avant e-tron will come with a range of motor and battery combinations, but the one Audi has revealed details about is a dual-motor setup, capable of 469bhp and 800Nm and an estimated range of 700km. It also gets the 800-volt charging tech from the e-tron GT, which allows charging at up to 270kW.
The A6 Avant e-tron sits on the PPE (Premium Platform Electric), which is being developed by Audi and Porsche to be used in, as the name suggests, premium vehicles and in different body styles, like the A6 Avant. In comparison, the e-tron SUV was based on VW Group’s MEB architecture.
While it is billed as a concept, you can expect the production-spec A6 Avant e-tron to be very similar to this in terms of both performance and design.
