Audi Q6 e-tron is based on a completely new platform

Featuring a 94.9 kWh battery pack and a claimed range of over 625 Km

The Audi Q6 has gone all-electric, but it's not just a swap from gas to electric. Audi claims the Q6 e-tron to be the pioneer of its electric fleet with the new Premium Platform Electric (PPE) that's a tag team effort with Porsche. And, the Q6 e-tron also flaunts the fresh E3 1.2 electronic architecture.

The front exudes a sporty vibe with a mask-like grille flanked by distinctive DRLs and headlights. Audi also claims to introduce the world's first active digital light signature, featuring six OLED panels with a total of 360 segments. This allows you to personalise the DRLs with up to eight digital light signatures, while the taillights also offer complete individualisation.

The vehicle's side profile features a streamlined design, with a gently sloping roofline that enhances its sporty appearance. At the rear, the classic Audi styling is evident, with the tail light extending across the width of the boot, emphasising the vehicle's broad stance when viewed from behind.

The Audi Q6 e-tron's interior follows a fresh design approach, described by Audi as 'three-dimensional and high contrast'. The focal point is the central 14.5-inch infotainment system, dominating the dashboard, accompanied by a 10.1-inch display for the passenger. For the driver, there's an 11.9-inch fully digital display positioned behind the four-spoke steering wheel, with the augmented reality heads-up display available as an optional extra. Additional features include a 20-speaker Bang & Olufsen Premium sound system and a range of advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS).

The Q6 e-tron is built on an 800-volt architecture and is equipped with a 100 kWh battery pack in both the standard and SQ models. The standard model delivers 387 PS, while the SQ variant offers additional power of up to 517 PS. Audi claims a range of up to 625 km, though this figure may be slightly lower for the SQ 6 e-tron. Both models feature all-wheel drive, with rear-wheel drive variants offering an extended range set to launch soon. The battery can be charged from ten to 80 per cent in approximately 21 minutes thanks to a charging capacity of up to 270 kW, Audi says.
