Audi A6 Avant e-tron concept launched

Electric estate makes its debut as part of Audi’s expanding EV range

Audi has revealed the A6 Avant e-tron concept, a “production-oriented” model that has a range of up to 435 miles on a charge.

Built on a new PPE platform for the group, the A6 Avant e-tron also features ultra-rapid charging, with up to 270 kW DC possible, topping up 186 miles in just 10 minutes.

The executive estate has been a staple for Audi for more than 50 years, with Avant badged models available for 45 years, and an electric version - particularly with a long driving range and rapid recharging - will become a cornerstone of the brand’s line-up once it goes into production, expected to be in 2024.

Featuring a 100 kWh battery and a 350 kW (496 hp) drive train with 800 Nm of torque, the A6 Avant e-tron Concept features all-wheel drive, though production versions will also be available in two-wheel drive. Entry level models will still be able to complete the 0-62mph sprint in less than seven seconds, while performance versions will be able to do it in under four seconds.
