sleek lines and slick looks maketh the Audi A6 Avant e-tron concept.

The Audi A6 Avant e-tron concept brings electric to the luxury estate. Read on to learn more.


Future Audi A6 models are set to go electric, and as seen late last year with the A6 Sportback e-tron concept, the A6 Avant e-tron concept is an all-but-confirmed preview of what Audi’s large executive car will look like when it goes into production next year.

some specs.

This concept has the same dimensions as the Sportback e-tron – 4.96 meters long, 1.96 meters wide, 1.44 meters high – but this time with a more practical estate or station wagon body style.

As seen in the Audi RS e-tron GT, the A6 Avant e-tron concept uses 800-volt battery technology and features 270kW rapid-charging capability.

“With the Audi A6 Avant e-tron concept, we are offering a completely tangible look at future production models on our new PPE (Premium Platform Electric) technology platform,” says Audi Board Member for Technical Development Oliver Hoffmann. “We’re not just electrifying the Avant’s successful 45-year history. What we want most of all is to use technical skill to add an exclamation point. In particular, this includes powerful 800-volt technology, 270 kW of charging capacity, and a WLTP range of up to 700 kilometers.”

Audi’s current RS e-tron GT features 590hp and 830Nm of torque courtesy of quattro via two electric motors, one front and one rear, and we’re expecting similar numbers out of a top-spec RS6 Avant e-tron if such a variant happens.

The concept car is said to have 469hp and 800Nm of torque delivered courtesy of two electric motors, allowing the century sprint to happen in an eyeball-searing “less than 4 seconds.” Not only would it go fast, but rapid-charging technology means being able to quickly add about 300km of range in 10 minutes at a suitably-equipped DC charger.

Unlike the RS e-tron GT, the A6 Avant e-tron is said to have high ground clearance, allowing for a more everyday-use estate. No transmission tunnel either, so rear-seat passengers can be more comfortable with more foot space. The battery pack, said to have 100kWh capacity in the Avant e-tron concept, sits neatly underfloor between both front and rear axles.

Pictures say a thousand words, so we’ll let you judge the looks for yourself.

digitally illuminated.

“Digital Matrix LED and digital OLED technology makes it possible to achieve maximum brightness and a wide range of features even with a minimal surface area, while at the same time offering customizable light signatures,” says Audi.

Lets put words into video. Have a gander…

Furthermore, Audi also says, “the Digital Matrix LED front headlights achieve almost cinematic quality. If, for example, the Audi A6 Avant e-tron concept is parked in front of a wall during a break to recharge the battery, the driver and passengers can pass the time playing a video game projected onto it. Instead of on a small screen in the cockpit, they’ll see their current game’s virtual landscapes projected onto the wall in XXL format – and all this via the Digital Matrix LED headlights.”

Here’s what was shown in the A6 e-tron Sportback concept unveil…

Audi further says, “three small, high-resolution LED projectors are built into each side of the body, transforming the ground beneath them into a stage when the doors are opened – small, extended, dynamic lighting
effects greet the occupants with messages in their own language.”

“Another four high-resolution LED projectors – inconspicuously integrated into the corners of the vehicle – generate turn signal projections. The design of these projections can be modified to address different markets and approval regions as required.”

In other words, we may be able to expect a spectacular light show once the production A6 e-tron in both Sportback and Avant guise go on sale. Things are still in the concept stage, so we await the production cars with bated breath.
