Audi Q6 e-tron spyshots.jpg

Audi is expanding its range of fully electric models to four in 2022, with the new Q6 e-tron joining the smaller Q4 e-tron, the existing e-tron and the e-tron GT.

Set to sit between the Q4 and the larger e-tron SUV when it arrives next year, the Q6 e-tron will also be the first Audi based on the Volkswagen Group’s new Premium Platform Electric (PPE) architecture, which has been jointly developed with Porsche.

Recently spyshots show the model will adapt the look of the smaller Q4 e-tron, as well as bearing some cues from the 2016 Q6 e-tron quattro concept. Influence from the e-tron GT four-door coupe is also visible, with similarly shaped headlamps and “radiator” grille, and a familiar full-width LED light-bar across the car’s tailgate.

In profile it features a longer bonnet than the Q4 e-tron, but shares a similar shoulderline, sloping roofline and tailgate spoiler. It’s expected the Q6 will be comparable in external dimensions to the combustion-engined Q5, but with a longer wheelbase and increased passenger space enabled by the new platform. We could also see a more sportily styled Sportback model join the range soon after, if the brand’s other electric SUVs are anything to go by.

Inside, the car is likely to adopt the new 11.6-inch central touchscreen used in the Q4 e-tron, which is the largest single display ever fitted to a production Audi. However, the design could be different due to the platform, and also to separate both models in terms of price and positioning.

The PPE architecture found underneath the Q6 e-tron will be shared with the next-generation Porsche Macan, which is due to be launched in 2023 as a full EV sitting alongside the existing, petrol-powered Macan. Despite both the Q6 and new Macan sharing similar hardware and software, they will be visually separate both inside and out.

The PPE platform is an evolution of the J1 platform found under the e-tron GT four-door, as well as the Porsche Taycan. That means it’ll have an 800-volt electrical architecture, enabling super-fast DC charging at a rate of up to 270kW.

Audi also says the platform will allow the EV’s battery pack to charge from five to 80 per cent capacity in around 25 minutes. A shorter charge using the fastest possible DC rapid charger can also add 186 miles of range in just 10 minutes.

It remains to be seen what size and type of battery pack Audi will use in the Q6 e-tron, but the firm says the PPE platform is capable of covering more than 700km (around 430 miles) when powering the more aerodynamic A6 e-tron concept. The slightly blunter surfacing on the SUV will dent the range, but a figure of more than 380 miles should be achievable.

Given the relationship to the e-tron GT under the Q6’s bodywork, we should also see that car’s 469bhp (or 523bhp with overboost engaged) four-wheel drive powertrain transfer over. More affordable, lower-powered single-motor variants are also likely, while at the other end of the range Audi’s RS division could line-up a more performance-focused model. That’ll probably use the same 636bhp powertrain as the RS e-tron GT.

New Audi Q6 E-Tron Fully Reveals Its Face In Latest Spy Photos

new-audi-q6-e-tron-spy-shots.jpg

A year of Audi Q6 E-Tron spy shots revealed little of the all-electric crossover’s design. It has worn a full camouflage wrap for months, but a fresh batch of spy pics captures the new model without any camouflage covering the front fascia, giving us our first look at the design.
The Audi wears a closed-off silver grille with the front camera below a black Audi badge. An opening in the angular lower bumper houses the sensors for the car’s various driver-assistance systems. Fake vents flank the grille, sitting below a split-headlight design that puts the daytime running lights above the headlights that are located lower on the face. Sadly, that’s all the new pics reveal, with a black sheet concealing the rest of it.

The spy photos don’t reveal much of the rear, though it appears that the crossover will adopt a lighting signature similar to the one on the E-Tron GT. That means the Q6 E-Tron will sport a full-width taillight. The camouflage hides the rest, and there’s nothing too exciting happening back there. Different variants could receive unique accents and garnishes to stand out in the lineup.

Audi hasn’t revealed any details about the crossover’s powertrain. All we have are rumors, and even they don’t paint a complete picture. Audi will allegedly offer an RS variant that could deliver as much as 600 horsepower (447 kilowatts), which will come from a dual-motor, all-wheel-drive setup. However, Audi will offer the new EV with a range of battery packs in both single- and dual-motor configurations.

The Q6 E-Tron will ride on the Premium Platform Electric architecture Audi co-developed with Porsche. PPE will also underpin the upcoming all-electric Porsche Macan. While the two crossover will likely share a lot of mechanical components, the two will wear different styling.


The new Q6 E-Tron will debut this year before going on sale sometime in 2023. The new crossover will sit above the Q4 E-Tron that Audi launched last April as the company continues to introduce new all-electric vehicles. The company wants to offer 20 EVs by 2025, and the Q6 E-Tron is another step toward achieving that goal.

New 2022 Audi Q6 e-tron spied in Sportback form

Audi Q6 e-tron Crossback.jpg

The new Audi Q6 e-tron will join the brand's all-electric line-up this year as a rival for both the Tesla Model Y and the larger Tesla Model X. Our spies have already caught a glimpse of the SUV in standard form, but these latest shots give us our first look at the coupe-like Sportback model.

Despite the heavy camouflage, it’s clear that the Sportback model will retain the overall styling direction of the base car, with a closed-off, textured front grille flanked by a pair of slim LED headlights and deep bumper cutouts.

This pre-production car also features two-tone body work - hinting at potential personalisation options - and a swept-back rear end for a sportier look. A full-width light bar will mark out the Sportback’s rear end, and the more aerodynamic silhouette could liberate a few extra miles of range over the standard SUV. Boot space will take a hit, however.

Our spy photographers previously spotted the Q6 e-tron’s undisguised front end during pre-production testing, providing our best look yet at Audi’s new electric car styling language. Contrast colour panels are expected to feature throughout, while sharp shoulderline creases will give the Q6 e-tron some added muscle.

As our exclusive images show, the rear will feature an integrated roof spoiler and a full-width light bar, in line with the current Audi e-tron SUV albeit with a slimmer design and a new daytime running light signature.

It’s expected the Q6 will be comparable in external dimensions to the combustion-engined Q5, but with a longer wheelbase and increased passenger space enabled by the new platform.

Inside, the car is likely to adopt the new 11.6-inch central touchscreen used in the Q4 e-tron, which is the largest single display ever fitted to a production Audi. However, the design could be different due to the platform, and also to separate both models in terms of price and positioning.

Despite both the Q6 and new Macan sharing similar hardware and software, they will be visually separate both inside and out.

The PPE platform is an evolution of the J1 platform found under the e-tron GT four-door, as well as the Porsche Taycan. That means it’ll have an 800-volt electrical architecture, enabling super-fast DC charging at a rate of up to 350kW.

Audi also says the platform will allow the EV’s battery pack to charge from five to 80 per cent capacity in around 25 minutes. A shorter charge using the fastest possible DC rapid charger can also add 186 miles of range in just 10 minutes.
