This Summer, Audi will Unveil the A6 E-Tron

During the presentation of its Q4 financial results last week, Audi revealed that the much anticipated A6 E-Tron would make its debut this summer.

Audi’s second vehicle to utilize the PPE (Premium chassis Electric) dedicated electric vehicle chassis, which was introduced earlier this year in the Audi Q6 E-Tron and Porsche Macan EV siblings, is the A6 E-Tron.

An identically named concept car debuted in 2021, and spy photos of prototypes indicate the real model will look a lot like the eye-catching show vehicle. This is the A6 E-Tron. It’s unclear if the wagon body style, or Avant in Audi lingo, will also make its debut in the summer.

The availability of the electric midsize car, the A6 E-Tron, in the United States is expected to be revealed by Audi early in the upcoming year as a 2025 model.

The A6 E-Tron will resemble the Tesla Model S in size and performance when compared to the American electric vehicle. It is designed to have both dual-motor all-wheel drive and single-motor rear-wheel drive. Audi installed a 100-kwh battery in the A6 E-Tron concept car, which was said to have a range of over 300 miles and could be charged from 5 to 80% in less than 25 minutes using 800-volt technology.

With a boost mode that temporarily increases output to 456 horsepower, the corresponding Q6 E-tron will have 422 horsepower. The comparable power outputs of a SQ6 E-Tron will be 483 and 510 horsepower. It is expected that the A6 E-Tron and its S6 E-Tron grade will have comparable numbers. There are also rumors of a high-performance RS 6 E-Tron grade on the horizon.

As part of Audi’s comprehensive goal to phase out gas-powered automobiles by early next decade, the gas-powered A6 will be replaced with the A6 E-Tron. The manufacturer plans to release its final gas-powered vehicle as early as 2026.

Along with redesigning the A5 and Q5, Audi will also be releasing an improved E-Tron GT this year. The PPC (Premium Platform Combustion) is the new platform that the A5 and Q5 will operate on. Regarding the A5, it’s possible that the coupe and convertible body types—currently available only as the Sportback hatch and a new Avant wagon—will eventually be discontinued.
