Like the A6 e-tron concept shown last year, the A6 Avant also uses an all-electric drive based on Audi's upcoming PPE (Premium Platform Electric) architecture. This is a new design project that shares the same dimensions as the A6 Sportback e-tron. The body is 4.96 m long, 1.96 m wide and 1.44 m high and should be positioned in the luxury class.
The most powerful representatives of the series accelerate from 0 to 60 m/h in less than four seconds. The values of Sportback and Avant should differ only slightly. Thanks to an 800-volt system and up to 270 kW of charging power, the fast charging station will be able to provide energy for about 190 miles in ten minutes. In less than 25 minutes, the charge level should increase from 5 to 80 percent.
The future range of PPE models will include single electric motor versions on the front and rear axles, which implement all-wheel drive through electronic matching. According to Audi, the program will also include base variants optimized for minimum fuel consumption and maximum range. Here, an electric motor on the rear axle provides propulsion.
The two electric motors of the Audi A6 Avant e-tron concept develop a total output of 350 kW/476 hp. and torque 800 Nm. The front wheels are connected via a 5-link axle optimized for electric vehicles. A multi-link suspension is installed at the back. The concept car uses air suspension with adaptive dampers.
