A few days ago, the first spy photos of the 2022 Audi Q6 e-tron appeared online. It is the brand’s new electric crossover that will ride on the PPE platform. The spy shots are showing a lot of interesting novelties, but we’ll get to that in a minute. The Q6 e-tron is the first Audi’s model to deploy Volkswagen’s PPE architecture. Moreover, Audi is co-developing this platform with Porsche.
Thanks to that, the new Q6 e-tron will share a lot of things with the next-gen Porsche Macan. New crossover will slot above the Q4 e-tron model and it is just one of the many models that Audi plans to launch by 2025. Without further ado, check out this all-new and impressive electric crossover-SUV.
2022 Q6 e-tron Spy Photos
The 2022 Audi Q6 e-tron has been spied for the first time. The electric SUV showed its design, which seems to be the production-ready variant. However, we can spot the taillights with a basic look, so we expect a different set of taillamps. On the other hand, the shape is final and it looks amazing. Some things are still a mystery, such as the LED strip on the back.
New Q6 e-tron is bigger than the Q4 e-tron model, and interestingly, Audi offers three electric SUVs at the moment, and all three are using different underpinnings. As we said, the Q6 e-tron will be the first model to sit on the new PPE platform. The spied prototype comes without the lower grille and longer wheelbase than its siblings.
Interior Provides Plenty of Luxury
The cabin of the 2022 Audi Q6 e-tron won’t depart from other e-tron variants. Thanks to that, we expect to see almost the same cabin as the Q4 e-tron model offers right now. Of course, the Q6 variant will provide more interior room, but the cabin layout is exactly the same. The Q6 e-tron SUV will offer a room for five passengers and we should expect a lot of luxury.
The interior design is very modern and the comfort is great. Audi will deliver a larger infotainment screen and Audi’s recognizable digital instrument cluster. Furthermore, features such as navigation, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto will be on offer as standard. We still don’t know which safety aids will be available, but we expect impressive safety ratings.
Driving Range, Charging
This is a tough one, as the manufacturer didn’t provide many details. The upcoming 2022 Audi Q6 e-tron will use the mentioned PPE platform. Unlike the MEB architecture, this one is based on the rear-wheel-drive setup. Furthermore, Audi will provide air suspension and torque vectoring. Moreover, the Q6 e-tron will support the fast-charging capability, at 350kW. From what we know, this SUV will provide numerous battery sizes, along with either single-motor and dual-motor configurations.
Thanks to that, an all-wheel-drive system will be standard in some variants. New Q6 e-tron will share a lot of components with the Porsche Macan. The next-gen Macan will be exclusively an all-electric model and the Q6 e-tron will follow the same path. No words about SUV’s power, but the Q6 e-tron will provide between 250 and 280 miles of driving range on a single charge. Lastly, this SUV can be charged from 0 to 80% in only 20 minutes, via fast-charging.
2022 Audi Q6 e-tron Release Date, Price
Reportedly, the forthcoming 2022 Audi Q6 e-tron will hit the dealerships in mid-2022. The production is about to start and this electric crossover-SUV will most likely cost between $70,000 and $80,000. Audi will reveal more details in the coming months.
