The A6 e-tron Is The Future of Audi's "E-volution"

Audi forges ahead with its “e-volution” towards electric mobility as it showed the four-door Audi A6 e-tron concept.

The all-electric Audi A6 e-tron is underpinned by Audi’s new Premium Platform Electric or PPE architecture. It will serve as the brand’s platform for future models. Beginning in late 2022, the first production cars in the C- and later also B-segment will be relaunched with PPE technology, including SUVs and sporty sedans.

PPE technology ensures that what the Audi A6 e-tron concept’s lines imply is translated into dynamic driving performance and suitability for daily use. Depending on the selected drive system and model version, an Audi A6 e-tron is expected to boast a range of more than 700 kilometers, and the most powerful members of the family will sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in less than four seconds.

The Audi A6 e-tron concept’s two electric motors are capable of delivering a total output of around 475 horsepower and torque of 800 Newton meters. The model’s front wheels are connected by a five-link axle specially optimized for electric vehicles, while a multi-link setup resides in the rear. The concept car rides on air suspension with adaptive dampers.

The battery size and wheelbase of Audi’s PPE vehicles are scalable, making them suitable for use in different market segments. The combination of a long wheelbase and short overhangs, and the absence of a transmission tunnel (despite being able to accommodate all-wheel drive) create more cabin space.

With the Audi A6 e-tron concept, Audi ensures PPE will transform the company toward electric mobility via volume and variety, becoming yet another Audi success story.
