Following the debut of the Audi A6 Sportback in April 2021, the carmaker with four rings is yet to add another model to the A6 fold – say an A6 Avant e-tron…
At this stage, it is still a concept but Audi executives promise it will look similar to the concept pictured here. We keep our fingers crossed. Based on the forward-looking PPE platform, the Audi A6 Avant e-tron boasts the same dimensions as the A6 Sportback e-tron that measures 4,96 m long, 1,96 m wide and 1,44 m high.
It follows the current formal design language as in other e-tron models such as a closed Singleframe grille as well as a continuous strip of lights bolstered at the back. It rides on massive 22” wheels housed by short overhangs and, like in all e-tron models, there are camera-based virtual exterior mirrors at the base of the A-pillar. The rear features a spoiler with coloured trim while a diffuser with two sized air outlets is positioned in the lower section to reduce turbulence.
Audi says the A6 Avant e-tron will come with Digital Matrix LED and digital OLED technology with customisable light signatures and a host of new features and personalisation options into its lighting units.
The front headlights come with a cinematic experience, if, for example, the Audi A6 Avant e-tron concept is parked in front of a wall during a break to recharge the battery, the driver and passengers can pass the time playing a video game projected onto it.
The folks at Audi remain coy with the exact battery capacity, however, the press release mentions about a 100 kWh rating as well as 800-Volt, 270 kW recharging capacity plus up to 700 km worth of pure electric driving range. According to Audi, a 300 km driving range can be added to the battery pack in just 10 minutes while 5-80% is achievable in 25 minutes. Audi claims the A6 Avant e-tron accelerates from 0-100 km/h in less than 7 seconds. Quite a conservative claim, if we're honest.
