Audi has revealed the A6 e-tron concept and with it, it’s pushing the e-volution towards electric mobility. The concept shows what the future electric vehicles from the company will appear like.
The company will launch a new family of electric vehicles from 2023 and these models will be based on the premium platform electric architecture. As we already know this architecture is being developed jointly by Porsche and Audi and in 2023, the architecture and the combustion-engined A6 will go into production.
The concept was revealed at the Shanghai Motor Show where the Q4 E-tron was also revealed. It will be the second car from the company to use this architecture.
The vehicle will have a large battery that will provide a range of over 390 miles. The battery pack will be spread out across the chassis, enabled the PPE structure. The company says it is because of this that the platform is ideal for both low-riding and high-riding vehicles without having to change the basic architecture.
The battery and wheelbase size can also be changed and they can push the wheels into the corner to offer more rear and front leg space. The concept vehicle has a motor on each axle offering very good power and torque output. The company also said that they will produce vehicles with a single motor on the rear axle. This will provide an improved range and a lower price.
All the PPE-based vehicles will come with similar charging capability just like the Porsche Taycan and E-tron GT. They will be able to charge at speeds of up to 270kW. In about 10 minutes the customers will be able to get 182 miles of charge.
The vehicle has digital Matrix LED headlights which feature OLED technology. They take less surface area and offer maximum brightness as well as offer several features. The company has not yet announced the prices of the vehicle but it is expected that it will be priced similar to the Tesla Model S.
