Audi is increasing its variety of totally electrical designs to 4 in 2022, with the new Q6 e-tron signing up with the smaller Q4 e-tron, the existing e-tron and also the e-tron GT.

Ready to rest between the Q4 and also the larger e-tron SUV when it arrives following year, the Q6 e-tron will certainly also be the first Audi based upon the Volkswagen Team’s brand-new Costs Platform Electric (PPE) style, which has actually been collectively created with Porsche.

Recently spyshots reveal the version will adjust the look of the smaller Q4 e-tron, in addition to birthing some hints from the 2016 Q6 e-tron quattro idea.

In account it features a longer bonnet than the Q4 e-tron, however shares a similar shoulderline, sloping roofline and also tailgate spoiler. It’s expected the Q6 will certainly be similar in external dimensions to the combustion-engined Q5, however with a longer wheelbase and boosted traveler area allowed by the brand-new system. We could additionally see a much more sportily styled Sportback model join the variety right after, if the brand name’s other electric SUVs are anything to go by.

Inside, the auto is most likely to adopt the new 11.6-inch main touchscreen utilized in the Q4 e-tron, which is the largest single screen ever before fitted to a manufacturing Audi. Nonetheless, the design could be different due to the system, as well as additionally to separate both designs in terms of price as well as positioning.

The PPE design discovered below the Q6 e-tron will certainly be shown the next-generation Porsche Macan, which results from be launched in 2023 as a complete EV sitting along with the existing, petrol-powered Macan. In spite of both the Q6 as well as new Macan sharing similar hardware and software, they will certainly be visually separate both in and out.

It stays to be seen what dimension and also sort of battery pack Audi will make use of in the Q6 e-tron, yet the firm says the PPE system is capable of covering greater than 700km (around 430 miles) when powering the more aerodynamic A6 e-tron principle. The slightly blunter emerging on the SUV will certainly dent the range, yet a figure of more than 380 miles ought to be possible.

Offered the partnership to the e-tron GT under the Q6’s bodywork, we ought to likewise see that vehicle’s 469bhp (or 523bhp with overboost involved) four-wheel drive powertrain transfer over. More inexpensive, lower-powered single-motor variations are additionally likely, while at the other end of the range Audi’s RS division might line-up an extra performance-focused design. That’ll possibly make use of the same 636bhp powertrain as the RS e-tron GT.

The Q6 e-tron will go into production at Audi’s Ingolstadt factory following year, which the brand is transforming to an all-electric production line, removing the existing tools that generates the brand’s A3 household hatch and replacing it with manufacturing centers to suit the PPE system.

This also includes the advancement of an internal battery setting up center “in the straight vicinity of auto assembly,” according to Duessman. The Volkswagen Team (Audi’s parent firm) has already signed a trio of collaborations to protect the raw materials as well as growth processes required for its next-generation battery evacuates to 2030.

Following the Q6 e-tron, Audi confirmed that its initial “Task Artemis” version will certainly release in 2024. The car will certainly be targeted at the luxury field, leading Audi’s growth of future digital automobile architecture, technology and also operating systems.

Audi additionally revealed the Grand Round idea at the 2021 Munich Motor Program. That cars and truck properly previewed the layout and also technology of the next generation of A8 luxury public house.
