Audi Q6 e-tron – Audi Teases with Electric Strategy
Almost ready for production, the Audi Q6 e-tron marks the start of Audi’s biggest model expansion as they look forward to introducing over 20 new models before 2025, including 10 all-electric vehicles. This new addition to Audi’s electric vehicle lineup promises to offer a blend of incredible performance, luxury, and sustainability, with a range of up to 600 km on a single charge. A first for Audi, the Q6 e-tron will be built on Volkswagen Group’s Premium Platform Electric (PPE) architecture, (shared with Porsche), and is expected to compete with other luxury electric SUVs such as the Tesla Model X and the Jaguar I-PACE. The Q6 e-tron is also expected to feature advanced driver assistance systems and a range of luxury amenities to make it a top contender in the rapidly growing electric SUV market.
Sharp creases above the wheel arches (also featured on the Q4 e-tron) are one of the most notable features on the Q6 e-tron, and it’s also tipped to feature the iconic Audi hexagonal grille frame, which has quickly become their trademark fascia in the electric era.
