I do not often do deep dives into idea vehicles — there are too lots of them, and most are simply rolling experimental platforms and nowhere close to actual manufacturing vehicles.
However a couple of issues about Audi’s new A6 Avant e-tron stand out: First, I really feel prefer it’s nearer to a manufacturing mannequin than the same old idea. See for proof Prime Electrical’s comparability between the unique Avant idea and the most recent. It is not all that removed from a 2022 A6 Avant. This Avant e-tron is the wagon model of the electrical A6 (2021).
Here is what we all know to this point:
469 horsepower and 590 pound-feet of torque.
Vary as much as 435 miles (10 minutes at a fast-charging station provides 186 miles).
2 electrical motors present AWD
800 volt expertise, 270 kW of charging capability
Minimal aerodynamic drag: cW worth 0.22
Deliveries to the USA are anticipated in 2024
The automobile’s Digital Matrix LED headlights are spectacular, however the showstopper are the LED projectors that accompany the flip indicators and back-up lights:
“Three small, high-resolution LED projectors are constructed into either side of the physique, turning the bottom beneath them right into a stage when the doorways are opened – small, elongated, dynamic gentle results greet the occupants by messages in their very own language. One other 4 high-resolution LED projectors – inconspicuously built-in into the corners of the car – generate flip sign projections. The design of those projections might be modified to satisfy totally different markets and approval areas if needed.”
Its movies are insane; hopefully, a lot of the tech on show will doubtless discover its approach into future Audis.
Followers are hoping for a lifted Allroad mannequin and high-performance RS variant. Early estimates have costs beginning round $75k, however I believe that is optimistic.
