The electric A6 will be based on Audi and Porsche’s upcoming PPE platform, which means 800 volt architecture and fast charging speeds of up to 270kW. The floor-mounted battery will be roughly 100kWh and should provide up to 435 miles of WLTP range in certain specs.
When the production version finally arrives there’ll be rear-wheel drive/single motor and all-wheel drive/dual motor options. The quickest versions will manage 0-62mph in less than four seconds and 10 minutes of fast charging should offer an extra 186 miles of range. Nice. This won’t be the end of the combustion-engined A6 though – Audi has confirmed that petrol-powered cars will be available in some markets alongside the e-trons for a while yet.
There’ll also be cameras for door mirrors, a huge rear diffuser and posh Digital Matrix LED headlights that can project video games onto walls for you to play whilst charging.
Fantastic looking thing isn't it? Along with the sportback too. Easily my favourite EV going by looks and as an A6 driver now, obviously this has my interest. Its not going to be eligible for any grants and will be expensive but I suppose they'll have to pitch it in alongside the EQE whatever prices that ends up at
Bmw i4 pricing might be a good indicator considering the cheapest 4 series is 57k and the i4 is 63k starting, I'd expect this to start at similar amount above the a6 which would make it high 60s as a very minimum for base spec. Probably looking at 75k for a decent one in all reality.
Probably have one of these before the i4 at this stage!!
I much rather the Audi GT Etron, it's one of my favourite looking EVs, ahead of Taycan and possibly even the i4 too.
