Audi fans take note. The popular traditional brand from Ingolstadt (official website) has released new footage of the eagerly awaited Audi Q6 e-tron. Here, the e-SUV can be seen driving through winter landscapes as a prototype.
Audi Q6 e-tron could offer 700 km range
Even if the Audi Q6 e-tron shows itself a bit restrained in the latest pictures thanks to Erlkönig costume, the shapes of the promising E-SUV can be clearly seen. And these underline the fact that this is to a certain extent the counterpart to the group’s brother Porsche Macan-E. Both premium vehicles not only rely on a powerful electric motor, but also share the VW Group’s Premium Platform Electric (PPE). The technical data is also still in the form of a prototype. The Ingolstadt company is not really disclosing any details here either. However, the fact that the Audi A6 e-tron presented as a concept car in March 2022 also relies on the PPE platform allows conclusions to be drawn about the equipment.
Should this be the case, we could expect a battery of up to 100 kWh here. This would then possibly result in a range of a remarkable 700 km. However, the manufacturer still provided a few details. They want to deliver the Audi Q6 e-tron with an 800-volt battery. This could result in the possibility of charging the e-car with an impressive 270 kW. Furthermore, it can be assumed that the e-SUV will be launched in three different engine versions. In addition to a front-wheel drive version, there will also be an all-wheel drive version and a more powerful RS version. However, these rumors should probably be taken with a grain of salt for now.
Availability this year?
When it comes to the release of the Audi Q6 e-tron is currently still in the stars. However, the sign of life that the Ingolstadt-based company has now given us raises hopes that it won’t be too much longer. Experts currently believe that the manufacturer could officially present the E-SUV in the second half of 2023. The presentation would then presumably also be accompanied by a production launch. We can only hope that Audi does not suffer from the same software problems as Porsche. These forced the premium manufacturer to postpone the start of production of the Macan-E from 2023 to 2024. It is therefore possible that the first models of the model could roll on local roads by the end of the year.
