The wait for the new electric model of the e-tron line was somewhat delayed: it was supposed to be shown back in 2023, but due to difficulties with software, the premiere was postponed to the spring of 2024. Now the Audi Q6 e-tron has been completely declassified. The main feature of the crossover is that it became the first Audi model on the PPE (Premium Platform Electric) architecture, the one that underlies the electric Porsche Macan.

Two versions are announced for the Audi Q6 e-tron: standard and “charged” SQ6 e-tron. In both cases, the electric cross has an 800-volt architecture, a 100-kilowatt-hour battery and two electric motors mounted on the front and rear axles. In the European market, the “base” version will develop 387 horsepower, and in the American market – 40 horsepower more. In this case, you can briefly increase the output to 396 forces. The more powerful SQ6 e-tron produces 483 horsepower or 510 horsepower in Boost mode.

Audi cites the dynamic characteristics of both versions: the Q6 e-tron quattro accelerates to “hundreds” in 5.9 seconds, and the SQ 6 e-tron takes 4.3 seconds. Top speed is limited to 210 and 230 kilometers per hour, respectively.

As for charging, you can replenish the energy supply, which is enough for 225 kilometers, in just 10 minutes, and charge the battery from 10 to 80 percent in 21 minutes. The power reserve has not yet been provided.

Among the unusual options, Audi especially notes the digital light signature of the crossover, which can be personalized – that is, the driver can choose the desired pattern. The front optics consist of 12 segments with adjustable brightness, and the rear lights use 360-segment OLED panels. Using light animation, it will be possible to “communicate” with other drivers on the road – for example, warn an oncoming car about danger.

Inside, the Q6 e-tron has a 14.5-inch infotainment screen, a head-up display with augmented reality, a voice assistant with AI and its own avatar, and an 11.9-inch digital instrument panel.

Sales of the Audi Q6 e-tron in Europe and China will start later this year, and the new product will reach the North American market in the fall. Prices will be announced closer to launch.
