The Audi Q6 e-tron will be the first of ten new electric models planned by 2025

Audi is fine-tuning its future Q6 e-tron electric SUV before it goes into production. If the manufacturer does not provide technical details for the moment and only presents it camouflaged, it nevertheless communicates on the platform. The Q6 e-tron will therefore be the brand’s first SUV to be based on the Premium Platform Electric (PPE) developed jointly with Porsche, which will serve as the basis for the future electric Macan.

In addition to its 800-volt architecture intended to reduce charging times, the manufacturer has announced that it will deploy its future SUV in fastback and standard hatch bodies. According to the release, the future Q6 e-tron marks “the next major step in the electrification and digitalization of the Audi model range.” The manufacturer is indeed working on new battery charge management software, and on a new user interface.

The launch of the future Q6 e-tron, scheduled for 2023, is being organized in a favorable context. The carmaker saw its turnover increase by 16.4% in 2022, reaching a record of 61.8 billion euros, while operating profit soared by almost 40% to reach an all-time high of 7.6 billion euros.
