New arrivals in Audi’s Q6 e-tron line-up

June 1, 2024

Audi is announcing a further, highly efficient variant for the new Audi Q6 SUV e-tron line-up ahead of the official market launch in August.

Audi Q6 e-tron

With rear-wheel drive and a 100kWh lithium-ion battery, the Audi Q6 SUV e-tron performance has a class-leading range of up to 392 miles (according to the WLTP cycle).

This capability puts it at the top of the Q6 SUV e-tron family when it comes to electric range. In addition, the scalable Premium Platform Electric (PPE) demonstrates its flexibility with the first purely rear-wheel drive version.

The vehicle marks the start of a new generation of electrically powered models at Audi. At the world premiere in March of this year, the brand with the four rings presented two variants of the new car: the Audi Q6 SUV e-tron quattro, which offers typical Audi sporty performance with a system output of 388PS, and the SQ6 SUV e-tron with a system output of 490PS (up to 517PS with launch control engaged).

The latest variant, the Audi Q6 SUV e-tron performance, uses a particularly efficient rear-wheel drive set-up. A compact and powerful permanent magnet synchronous motor (PSM) provides a system output of 306PS. The 0-62mph sprint takes 6.7 seconds. When launch control is engaged, the system power output increases to 326PS and the 0-62mph time is 6.6 seconds.

Such capabilities make this Audi an attractive choice for customers who are looking for an extended electric range, dynamic performance, and suitability for everyday use with brief charging stops. With up to 392 miles on a single charge, the Audi Q6 SUV e-tron performance is among the best in its class for electric driving range.

The Q6 SUV e-tron performance has a charging capability of up to 260kW. At a suitable fast charging station, it is possible to add 161 miles of driving range in 10 minutes.

The new rear-drive variant is the latest member of the Audi Q6 SUV e-tron family. It has the longest range within the model portfolio and can be ordered in the UK later the summer, priced at £63,475. Customer deliveries are planned for the third quarter of this year. The first deliveries of the Audi Q6 SUV e-tron quattro and Audi SQ6 SUV e-tron variants to customers are scheduled to begin in August.

Later in the summer, an entry-level variant called Q6 SUV e-tron, also featuring rear-wheel drive, will be added to line-up.
