- Audi confirmed a new model called Q6 e-tron, which will be an electric SUV between the Q4 e-tron and Q8 e-tron models.
- It will use the VW Group’s new PPE platform with an 800-volt electrical architecture.
- We expect the Q6 e-tron to debut later this year and arrive in the US as a 2025 model.
Audi is adding another electric model to its lineup, the Q6 e-tron. As its name suggests, it will be placed between the Q4 e-tron and the recently renamed Q8 e-tron Electric SUVs. These first official photos of a camouflaged Q6 prototype undergoing winter testing give us a glimpse of what this new model looks like, and Audi has released preliminary details on its new PPE platform and 800-volt electrical architecture. which should enable incredibly fast charging speeds.
The Q6 e-tron will be offered in conventional SUV and slanted Sportback versions, just like its siblings. The square back is shown here, and its overall proportions are what we’ve come to expect from an Audi crossover. The front seems to adopt a split headlight design similar to the The BMW X7sbut we don’t know how much the prototype lighting elements will change for production.
This model will introduce the VW Group’s PPE electric platform, which stands for Premium Platform Electric. These underpinnings benefit from a more powerful 800-volt electrical system and will also be found in future models, including the Audi A6 etron. We expect the Q6 e-tron to have a standard dual-motor all-wheel-drive setup that will no doubt bear the Quattro name that Audi uses for all of its AWD models. Competitors will include vehicles such as the Cadillac LyriqTHE Genesis Electrified GV70and the Lexus RZ.
Audi has yet to set a launch date for the production Q6 e-tron, but we expect to see the real thing in the coming months.
