Audi is in a phase of electrification of its range where a new version will be added shortly. This is the Q6 e-tron . A high-performance electric SUV that has been hunted during one of its last winter tests.
As we remember, this model will be placed in size between the current Q4 e-tron and e-tron, so it will most likely be placed in the 4.7-meter segment where we find proposals such as the Tesla Model Y, Ford Mustang Mach-e, although its closest rivals will be the Porsche Macan or the Mercedes EQB.
It will also be in charge of launching the PPE modular platform within Audi, an advanced architecture developed in collaboration with Porsche.
The future A6 e-tron and Porsche Macan will also make use of this platform, designed for the most powerful and luxurious electric cars of the Volkswagen Group. Among other advances, it will have an 800-volt electrical system , which will allow the three vehicles to enjoy very competitive charging times.
As we can see in the photos, the Q6 e-tron will maintain the rounded line of the family with an appearance that, despite the camouflage, seems very balanced in all its aspects. An interesting alternative for which the Q4 is too small, and the etron too big.
We can also highlight from these images that Audi will bet heavily on self- driving . And it is that in the front part we can find in addition to a radar in the central part, a pair of cameras in the front bumper mustache.
In the images we can see some changes, such as the situation of the charging port that will be placed as in the MEB family on the left rear . Something that will certainly be welcomed by customers who are thinking of going for an Audi etron, but the current position on the left front wing does not convince them.
In the mechanical aspect, the Audi RSQ6 e-tron will mount a system between 500 and 600 hp, and will have a 100 kWh capacity battery pack , so it will have a range similar to that of the BMW iX M60, which, as we remember, achieves 575 km WLTP. All with a somewhat more compact proposal than BMW itself. Audi Q6 RS e-tron that will be presented this year, while deliveries will begin in the first half of 2023.
