With the Q6 e-Tron, Audi will bring another electric SUV onto the market. We have exclusive spyshot pictures of the upcoming e-car for you and tell you what is known so far.
The prototype of the new Audi Q6 e-Tron was seen during test drives. It is below the current e-Tron and is expected to come onto the market at the end of 2022. Read on to find out all about this electric SUV.
- Q6 e-Tron spotted on a test drive
- Fully electric SUV below the e-Tron
- 100 kWh battery from the A6 e-Tron
- A range of around 640 kilometers
- 270 kW fast charging possible
- Announcement expected in 2022
- Price from around 69,000 euros
New spy shots of the Audi Q6 e-Tron give us an indication of what the finished product will look like. The slim headlights are mounted high on the bumper and are reminiscent of those of the A6 e-Tron concept.
It is very likely that the radiator grille that can be seen behind the film is covered, as it is not needed in an electric car. The large radar sensor in the lower bumper indicates a technology for autonomous driving.
While this prototype comes with traditional exterior mirrors, the production car will certainly be available with the virtual mirrors that you get on the larger e-Tron.
We created a render (see above) that shows what the finished car might look like.
The rear of the Q6 e-Tron appears to be similar to that of the smaller Q4 e-Tron, but Audi has done its best to disguise any resemblance by adding round taillights to this test car.
These will almost certainly be replaced by horizontal LED bars, as can also be seen on the Audi Q4 e-Tron SUV.
Battery and range
The Audi Q6 e-Tron will likely use the 100 kWh battery of the upcoming A6 e-Tron sedan, which will not come onto the market until 2023 after the Q6 e-Tron.
When the A6 e-Tron was presented as a concept vehicle, it had a range of 700 kilometers. We can assume that the Q6 e-Tron will have a slightly shorter range due to its higher weight and less aerodynamic shape, probably around 640 kilometers.
The engine options are expected to be shared with the A6 e-Tron. These include single and double engine variants, possibly with up to 476 hp and 800 Nm torque.
Audi Q6 e-Tron interior
The new Audi Q6 e-Tron will likely share much of the interior design with the Q4 e-Tron, just with a little more space and more luxurious appointments due to the higher price.
You can look forward to lots of recycled materials and the angular steering wheel with touch-sensitive buttons, which you can also use in the Q4 e-Tron.
It’s also certain that the Q6 e-Tron will have a completely flat floor so that passengers in the back seats won’t have to argue about footwell.
Rumor has it that the Q6 e-Tron will also have an augmented reality head-up display so that the directions of the navigation system can be shown on the road.
Audi Q6 e-Tron: price and start of sales
The Q6 e-Tron will hit the market at the end of 2022, even before the A6 e-Tron sedan. One can assume that it will cost around 69,000 euros, which would make the new Q6 e-Tron a bit cheaper than the brand’s electric flagship, namely the Audi e-Tron.
