Audi A6 Avant e-tron Concept Is An Upcoming Electric Wagon
Audi shows what an electric wagon from them might look like in the A6 Avant e-tron Concept.
Almost a year after showing the Audi A6 e-tron concept in 5-door Sportback form, the brand with the four rings is now teasing a production-ready Avant variant. This new Audi A6 Avant e-tron concept car and it could be the first electric station wagon.
Just like the other Audi A6 e-tron concept, this car is built on the Premium Platform Electric (PPE) and shares its dimensions of 4.96m (length) by 1.96m (width) by 1.44m (height). The PPE features 800-volt charging technology and can take up to 270 kW DC fast charging for ultra-quick charge-up times (10 minutes for 300km with a maximum range of 700km on a full charge.
Even the most basic of the planned electric A6 models will be able to go from 0-100km/h in under 7 seconds. Top end models will be able to do this in just under 4 seconds.
It builds on the same evolved design language with the closed Singleframe grille and continuous light strip. Its sleek profile was carefully crafted to return a coefficient of drag of just 0.24 cW. It sports wheels of up to 22″ in diameter and lacks the hard edges found on most of today’s Audi vehicles.
Here’s the press release with more information about the Audi A6 e-tron Avant.
Audi has presented the next model in its future electrically-powered A6 Luxury Class: the Avant. The company with the four rings introduced the Audi A6 Sportback with an electric drive system at the Shanghai Auto Show in April 2021. The production-oriented A6 Avant e-tron concept car now illustrates the synthesis of pioneering drive technology and Audi’s traditional design world: the Avant.
Like the Audi A6 e-tron concept that was exhibited in 2021, the A6 Avant also has an exclusively electric drive system based on the forward-looking PPE platform, developed under Audi’s leadership. At the same time, it represents a new design concept with the same dimensions as the A6 Sportback e-tron. At 4,960mm (16.3 ft.) long, 1,960mm (6.4 ft.) wide, and 1,440mm (4.7 ft.) tall, its proportions put it in the luxury class. Its lines are a consistent development in Audi’s contemporary formal language. Significant elements like the closed Singleframe and the continuous strip of lights in the rear emphasize its kinship with the other electrically powered Audis in the e-tron fleet.
The Audi A6 Avant e-tron concept exterior model that is making its debut in March 2022 is not just a simple design exercise. Its lines and elegant proportions preview future Audi production models and offer clues about how dynamic and elegant the electrically-powered luxury class will look.
