It is based on the new Premium Platform Electric architecture and promises a range of over 700 km. This is the Audi A6 e-tron Concept.
This is just a concept, but the technology it incorporates is as real as it gets. For example, the underlying PPE platform will be available in series starting in 2022, on multi-segment models. For the first time for electric models, the platform will be common for SUVs and sedans. It will also form the basis of the future Audi A6 e-tron series model.
The only elements preserved from the current A6 generation are the external dimensions: 4.96 m long, 1.96 m wide and 1.44 m high. Otherwise, the Audi A6 e-tron Concept is a sportback and comes with style elements that we will find in future generations of Audi. In short, it looks close to the next generation A6.
It is very aerodynamic. The CX of 0.22 is the best among the electrics in its segment. The wheels are 22 inches in diameter, the brackets are short and the ceiling is lowered. The full mask and the huge air intakes that flank it stand out. At the rear, the taillights extend to the center emblem. Matrix LED lights use OLED technology, which ensures maximum brightness on a small area of the optical block. The Audi A6 e-tron also designs warning messages on asphalt, announcing, for example, cyclists that the doors will open.

Heliosilver special paint with three-dimensional effect reflects a large part of the solar thermal radiation, so air conditioning is used less, with a beneficial effect on autonomy.
Audi A6 e-tron Concept: technique
The battery is located between the axles and has a capacity of 100 kWh. On series models based on the PPE platform, the battery and body dimensions may vary. The common denominator of these models will be the maximum possible wheelbase for the given length, which translates into generous interior space and increased comfort. They can be equipped with two electric motors (4 × 4) or with a single motor (rear propulsion).
In the case of the A6 e-tron, the two engines generate 350 kW (469 hp) and 800 Nm. The front axle has 5 arms, and the rear one is multilink. The battery can be charged to 270 kW. Thus, it ensures charging times close to those of powering a conventional car. That is 10 minutes for 30 km autonomy and less than 25 minutes for the 100 kW battery to be charged from 5 to 80%.
The Audi A6 e-tron promises a range of over 700 km and accelerates to 100 km / h in less than 4 seconds. Even the basic versions built on the PPE platform will accelerate to 100 km / h in less than 7 seconds.
