Stunning 2024 Audi A6 Avant E-tron boasts 435-mile range

Audi has revealed its latest iteration of the Audi A6 Avant e-tron, that looks a stone’s throw away from a production model. Rumoured to arrive in showrooms in 2024, the stunning new electric vehicle is expected to sit alongside the next generation of A6 Avant with combustion engines.


Its styling closely follows that of the saloon version shown off last year, so it’s more evidence that this is the design language Audi has settled on for its large electric models. Its solid ‘Singleframe’ grille has a textured surface, slots for cooling and illuminated white Audi rings. Its headlights are ultra-slim and use projection technology precise enough to shine an image onto a wall, and even provide the visuals for interactive games. Its LED projectors can also be used to shine signals and lighting effects onto the ground, including indicator signals to improve safety for other road users like cyclists.

The A6 Avant e-tron appears hunkered down over its large 22-inch alloy wheels, while its surfacing has been decluttered for a really smooth appearance. Most exterior trim has been blacked out, but a single chrome line traces the path of the A-pillars over the elongated roof line, accentuating the estate’s length. At the rear, there’s a small window above a full-width OLED light bar capable of displaying numerous 3D light signatures and animations.

It will sit on the Premium Platform Electric (PPE), developed with Porsche, which will also underpin the Q6 e-tron SUV. It features an 800-volt architecture, allowing charging speeds of 270kW, while a battery capacity of around 100kWh provides an impressive claimed range of up to 435 miles. Power figures for its electric motors are still to be confirmed by Audi, but there will be a choice of rear-wheel drive and dual-motor four-wheel drive performance versions, the ‘strongest’ of which will get from 0-62mph in under four seconds.

Measuring 4,960mm in length, 1,960mm wide and 1,440mm tall, the A6 e-tron is roughly the same size as the outgoing diesel model and looks set to take on the BMW i5 – although it’s not yet known if a Touring estate version of that car is in the works.
