Premiere of the electric Audi A6 Avant e-tron concept

In connection with the annual press conference, Audi is premiering yet another electric car that is sure to please the global market – the concept version of the A6 Avant e-tron. Almost a year ago, the electric Audi A6 Sportback e-tron was presented at the Shanghai Auto Show. Now it’s the premiere of the near-production concept car A6 Avant e-tron. A long-awaited model that combines electric drive with the functional and strong design that Audi calls Avant. The new Premium Platform Electric electric car platform with 800-volt technology and fast charging of 270 kW provides a range of up to 70 miles.

Like the Audi A6 Sportback e-tron concept, which was shown in Shanghai 2021, the A6 Avant e-tron is planned for electric drive only and is based on the new PPE platform developed under Audi’s leadership. With a length of 4.96 meters, width of 1.96 meters and height of 1.44 meters, the Avant version shares the dimensions with the A6 Sportback e-tron. The lines are a consistent further development of Audi’s modern design language. Clear details, such as the closed single-frame grille and the full-length light bar at the back emphasize the car’s kinship with the other models in the e-tron fleet.

A6 Avant e-tron – with fast charging and long range

The heart of the Audi A6 Avant e-tron concept’s drive technology – and of all future PPE models – will be the 800-volt charging. Just like in the Audi e-tron GT quattro, this ensures that the battery can be charged with up to 270 kW at the fast charging stations.

The PPE technology enables charging times that approach a conventional stop to refuel a car. Just 10 minutes is enough to charge the battery to a level that is sufficient to drive the car for about 30 miles (WLTP). And in less than 25 minutes you can charge the 100 kWh battery in the Audi A6 Avant e-tron concept from 5 to 80%.

With a range of up to 70 miles (depending on drive system and power output) the Audi A6 e-tron family models are ready for longer journeys, where the charging speed makes them perfect for everyday needs, from shorter commutes to longer holiday trips.
