Sporting the Audi A6 emblem, the concept car underscores its place in the brand's luxury-class model series. This model has represented the brand in one of the world's highest-volume segments since 1968 - initially, and until 1994, as the Audi 100. First the Sedan, Avant, and allroad, then later the Sportback - which was introduced as the A7 - rounded out the model family. An electrified drive system already has a long tradition in the Audi A6 - after a full hybrid version that was released back in 2011, the current Audi A6 TFSIe made its debut in 2019 with a plug-in hybrid drive and an electric range of up to 91 kilometers (WLTP).
The Audi A6 e-tron concept exterior model making its debut in Shanghai is far more than just a simple design exercise - its body is a foretaste of Audi's future production models and provides clear indications of just how dynamic and elegant the electric-powered luxury class from the brand with the four rings will look.
For its part, the PPE technology will ensure that what the car's lines imply is actually translated into dynamic driving performance and everyday suitability befitting use as a primary vehicle. Specifically, this means that depending on the selected drive system and model version, an Audi A6 e-tron is expected to boast a range of more than 700 kilometers (based on the WLTP standard) in the future - and the most powerful members of the family will sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in less than four seconds.
